The image of lost sheep without a shepherd is a familiar one in the Bible but it’s probably not something that most of us have ever run into. So, it may sound surprising to hear Jesus referring the people in the towns and villages of Israel as “sheep without a shepherd.” When Jesus looked out He saw people, as He described, who were “harassed and helpless.” A better translation of that word “harassed” might be “weary" or "worried.” Weary, worried and helpless? Now that begins to sound a little bit more familiar.
