Yeshua’s directive to “go to the lost sheep of the house of Israel” is essentially the call to be a shepherd. In this Yeshiva course, we will seek to study and emulate the Good Shepherd, Yeshua. The heart and essence of being a shepherd like Yeshua is sacrifice. Sacrifice is the heart of the Gospel. Sacrifice is the measure of our love. Sacrifice is the measure of our service to God and will determine the degree of our success in ministry.
