Lent Day 8

Thursday, February 26: Words of Public Proclamation 36-40
36 The assertion of “I Am” 
37 His role as self-sacrificing shepherd and doorway 
38 The importance to Heaven of every repentant convert 
39 Second summary of the Law and the Tradition 
40 The salvific role of the Law

Reflect: Why do you think Jesus used so much sheep and shepherd imagery? Do these images still work today even though we are not a farming/agricultural society? Why did Jesus spend so much time talking about the Law? How does that focus still speak to us today?
