Program #327 “The Foolish Shepherd”  2/4/2018 -  Synopsis


This week’s radio program is an exposition of Zechariah 11 where the prophet is commanded to shepherd a flock doomed for slaughter.  The Jews returning from exile were returning only to again be exiled into the Gentile nations for 2000 + years until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.  Zechariah is instructed to dramatize this event by resigning from ministry and dressing up as a foolish shepherd.  The lesson is that if a people don’t accept righteous leadership (political or religious), fools will fill the vacuum.  God gives a nation what they ultimately want and what they ultimately deserve.   Scriptural texts such as this one explain why we have politicians who enact policies that destroy America.
