Topic: SHEEP

Please allow me to sidestep the main topic of your debate, and address the reference to sheep. Bearing in mind that sheep were generally a "livelihood", numbering in the hundreds to thousands, and therefore requiring year-round pasturing: Winter-time is when the pregnant and oftentimes lambing sheep need their shepherd the most. A shepherd LIVES with his sheep. He never leaves them. They know his voice and follow him. He knows each one by sight, and by voice.(baaaa)Yes, it's true! A shepherd can differentiate sheep in the dark by their voice! Sheep aren't too bright sometimes. When they are about to lamb, they will go off alone, sometimes in a storm, leaving themselves open for attack. When the weather is cold and wet, the barometric pressure drops, triggering labor. I've plucked many newborn lambs from an icy puddle, to give them a warm bath and a couple CCs of coffee, retrieving them from the consequences of their own mother's ignorance. Sheep need their shepherd every hour of every day, even more so in the winter-time; the season of the worst storms. Is it any wonder that Jesus is the "good shepherd", and we his flock? A good shepherd NEVER leaves his sheep, no matter how cold and stormy. As to differences of opinion concerning details of the "good shepherd's" life; is it not his teachings and the work accomplished by his death and resurrection that we are to focus on? (head-butting is a frequent and pointless activity of sheep as well, not to mention frustrating to the shepherd)
