Bible Term: Good Shepherd

The Good Shepherd is a descriptive title for Jesus. Just as a good shepherd watches over and cares for his sheep, Jesus, our Good Shepherd watches over and cares for those who follow him, that is, his sheep. See John 10:1-16; also Psalm 119:176, Isaiah 53:6, Ezekiel 34:11, 1 Peter 2:25, and Matthew 9:36.
