LISTEN: John 10: The Good Shepherd

Rev. Aaron Eime reminds us that in the lectionary, Easter is not a one-day event but a four-week season, a time of reflection on the teaching of Jesus, now that we know he is alive. In the passage, Jesus uses allegory to invite the listener to engage in interpretation. The motif of the shepherd is first discussed in a historical context and then Moses as a type of good shepherd.

Readings: Ezekiel 34: 1-16 Psalm 23 John 10: 1-10

Christ Church Jerusalem
Christ Church is the oldest Protestant Church in the Middle East. It was completed in Jerusalem in 1849 and soon after became known as the "Jewish Protestant Church." Today Christ Church is an evangelical Anglican congregation that worships in our historic church in the Old City of Jerusalem. The congregation, comprised of expatriates who have come to serve in Israel or the West Bank along with local believers (both Jews and Arabs), welcomes visitors and tourists to its worship services. We are an English speaking congregation that appreciates our Jewish roots in a liturgical and historical context.
