The Compassion of Jesus
July 2014 Sermon Series:
How did Jesus define His ministry? Before we get into John 8 – Let’s consider Luke 4.16; Matthew 9.10-13; and Matthew 11.28-30. This serves as a great back drop on John 8.1-11. What can we learn about this story?
Jesus is the only true shepherd. He is the good shepherd who really cares for His sheep. This stood in great contrast to the Jewish leaders who cared only for themselves. For them, it was all about personal gain, prestige, power, and prominence. What does it mean when Jesus says He is the true Shepherd and the Door?
