Sermon Notes 30 April 2023
Doomed to Slaughter
Speaker: Ps Dev Menon / Mr Quek Tze-Ming
“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:
- Read Zech 11:4-14. How are both the flock and “their own shepherds” (v. 5) behaving badly? What is this sign-act depicting?
- What are the flock (especially their leaders, see v. 5) doing when they pay the 30 pieces of silver (vv. 11-12)?
- Read Matthew 23. Why did Jesus denounce the religious leaders? Read John 10:7–18. How does Jesus describe himself in these verses?
- What are some things that may happen as a result of God’s people and churches following bad shepherds today?
