Parable of a Lost Sheep
Jesus the Good Shepherd
Then Peter went into the house where Jesus was. Jesus had not heard what they were talking about outside, but he knew, because he is God and knows everything. He asked Peter a question. He asked, Do kings collect taxes from their sons, or from other people? Peter said, From other people, not their sons. Now Jesus is God’s son, and the temple is God’s house, so Jesus didn’t need to pay the temple tax. But Jesus tolJesus told a parable about a shepherd who had one hundred sheep. When one of the sheep got lost, the shepherd searched and searched until he found it. Peter, So that we won’t upset people, I’ll pay the tax.
In Luke’s account Jesus told the parable to help the Pharisees understand that God loves each and every sinner. The Pharisees did not understand why Jesus was spending so much time with the sinners. They thought they were more important than the “sinners” and that he should spend time with them. In the parable Jesus showed that he did not spend all of his time with faithful Jews (the 99 sheep) because he wanted to go out searching for those lost in sin (the one sheep).
Dramatically demonstrate the role of a good shepherd and then explain how Jesus loves us and looks after us like a good shepherd
