This week’s lectionary passages teach us about the pastoral ministry of Christ, the good shepherd who cares for his sheep by teaching them truth and keeping them from error.

Lee Gatiss expounds the lectionary readings for this week: Jeremiah 23:1-6, Ephesians 2:11-22, and Mark 6:30-34, 53-56.

You can also follow along with these video expositions on the Lee on the Lectionary Facebook page. We also tweet the video link every Sunday morning at 6am for those who like a morning exposition of the word to begin the week. Follow us @churchsociety.
