Jesus shepherds us home in unity

Jesus looks at the vast crowd with pity “for they were like sheep without a shepherd” (Mark 6:34). Jesus would be the faithful shepherd of a new Israel. We see a significant result of Jesus shepherding his people when Paul, a former Pharisee, describes in his letter to the people of Ephesus, that “in Christ Jesus you who were once far off have become near by the blood of Christ. For he is our peace, he who made both one … that he might create in himself one new person” (Eph 2:13-15). Paul is describing the bringing together of Jews and Gentiles into the new community of Christians, the Body of Christ, the Church that Jesus said he would build.
