…. they were unschooled, ordinary men …. they had been with Jesus …. the crippled man healed standing with them – Acts 4:13,14
While preparing for a sharing on Jesus our good shepherd, found an amazing video of sheep listening to their loving shepherd and following him.
I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.
I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me.
My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.
The sheep were grazing in the foggy meadow, some very far away.
When the good shepherd called them in the midst of the fog, they joyfully ran to his side in expectation.
May we be ever listening to our good shepherd’s voice,
and joyfully run to his side whenever he calls,
even in foggy meadows.
2 The one who enters by the gate is the shepherd of the sheep. 3 The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. 4 When he has brought out all his own, he goes on ahead of them, and his sheep follow him because they know his voice. 5 But they will never follow a stranger; in fact, they will run away from him because they do not recognize a stranger’s voice.”
Btw, here’s a translation of their conversation:
2:38 shepherd: that white one is an ewe (female sheep), she hasn’t really figured it out – far from it.
2:53 shepherd: what do you think about that white one there?
3:13 wife: what does the farmer say?
3:17 shepherd: the farmer says they know the voice of the shepherd, and he knows theirs. amen!
