Sermon Notes 30 April 2023

Doomed to Slaughter

Speaker: Ps Dev Menon / Mr Quek Tze-Ming
Zechariah 11:1-17


 “Open …; Wail …” (vv. 1-3)

Play the part of the Good Shepherd (vv. 4-14)

Play the part of a Foolish Shepherd (vv. 15-16)

“Woe …” (v. 17)


Questions for Discussion and Reflection: 

  1. Read Zech 11:4-14. How are both the flock and “their own shepherds” (v. 5) behaving badly? What is this sign-act depicting?
  2. What are the flock (especially their leaders, see v. 5) doing when they pay the 30 pieces of silver (vv. 11-12)?
  3. Read Matthew 23. Why did Jesus denounce the religious leaders? Read John 10:7–18. How does Jesus describe himself in these verses?
  4. What are some things that may happen as a result of God’s people and churches following bad shepherds today?
