B118 - Easter 4 (Good Shepherd)
Robyn and Fran unpack the good shepherd imagery used for God in Psalm 23 and Jesus in  John 10:11-18. We discuss the complexity of “laying down one’s life” and its afterlife in the way we talk about veterans and self-sacrifice (noting it is Anzac Day in Australia this Sunday).
