The Shepherd

.
The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want. –Ps 23:1

Jesus the good shepherd lays down His life for His sheep

[Jesus]I am the good shepherd, and I know My own and My own know Me, 15 even as the Father knows Me and I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep –Jn 10:14-15

Jesus is the great Shepherd raised from the dead who equips through the blood right now

Now the God of peace, who brought up from the dead the great Shepherd of the sheep through the blood of the eternal covenant, even Jesus our Lord, 21 equip you in every good thing to do His will, working in us that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen. –He 13:20-21

Jesus the Chief Shepherd will return and His sheep will receive the unfading crown of glory

Therefore, I exhort the elders among you, as your fellow elder and witness of the sufferings of Christ, and a partaker also of the glory that is to be revealed, 2 shepherd the flock of God among you, exercising oversight not under compulsion, but voluntarily, according to the will of God; and not for sordid gain, but with eagerness; 3 nor yet as lording it over those allotted to your charge, but proving to be examples to the flock. 4 And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the unfading crown of glory. –1Pe 5:1-4

Lord, save Your people and bless Your heritage; nourish and shepherd them; Carry them in your arms forever. –Ps 28:9

    Some one long ago suggested that in Psalm 22 we have the Good Shepherd-giving His life for the sheep; in Psalm 23, the Great Shepherd in resurrection life guiding His people through the wilderness of this world, and in Psalm 24, the Chief Shepherd coming again in power and glory to bring in everlasting blessing.
