It is no coincidence that so many of our Biblical heroes were shepherds. The simple profession was ideal for two reasons. On the one hand, the abundance of time for quiet reflection and meditation allowed the shepherd to develop an intimate relationship with the Lord. Additionally, shepherds who excelled in their work acquired a deep sensitivity to the needs of each and every sheep in his flock. What he learned as a young shepherd influenced Joseph to become a paradigm for all future generations in the service of God and the service of man. We hope our eBook, “Animals of the Bible,” opens your eyes to the many animals living in the Holy Land and to marvel at the wonders of all of God’s creations.
