Psalm 23 – A Video Presentation

Psalm 23 – A Video Presentation

Psalm 23 presents the God of the Bible as the good shepherd.  The use of the shepherd metaphor to describe the God of the Israel would be clearly understood by people who lived in a pastoral society.

In the psalm, the shepherd leads his flock to green pastures where there is abundant grass where the sheep can eat and drink.

The video below is a good dramatization of the work of the shepherd.  Enjoy.

  1. Daniel says:

    Boy, that’s good.

    I can’t believe how much my conception of God is not as the Good Shepherd but as a rancher (even worse, as a ranch hand) and I’m a calf getting roped and taken down.


    • Daniel,

      Many times we may feel like a calf getting roped, but when we feel like that that we must remember that God is a shepherd, not a ranch hand, and that he is the good shepherd. Last quarter I taught a course on “The God of the Old Testament” and my students realized that most Christians know very little of the God of the Old Testament. I may be writing on this topic sometime in the future.

      Thank you for your comment.
