Morris, Ph.D. (Evidence for Creation )   “Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He seeth the Father do: for what things soever He doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise” (John 5:19)….

The Good Shepherd

RR-October 18, 2016     By George McGuinness   The Lord Jesus is described in scripture as, “the Good Shepherd,” meaning the “genuine shepherd,” and not a false shepherd.
