Images for the Fourth Sunday of Easter -2014

Readings: Acts 2: 42-47, Psalm 23, 1 Peter 2: 19-25 and John 10: 1-10. Frequently called ‘Good Shepherd’ Sunday since the gospel reading for the Fourth Sunday always comes from John 10 which is all images surrounding Jesus being the Good Shepherd paired with Psalm 23.

I think the Acts 2 reading about the life of the earliest church is worth paying attention to as well so a couple images that remind me of this reading about the earliest followers devoting themselves to the apostle’s teaching with breaking of bread and prayer and holding all things in common.

Now on to Good Shepherd Images:

This is an image of David, but paired with the image of the gate (which is about protection) I think it makes sense. From Life of David, Psalter of Basil II, late 10th Century, Constantinople
