Animal Stories From The Bible

Acts is a book that needs to be read by Believers to fully appreciate its message. At the end of his Gospel, John writes that the signs and miracles he recorded were written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name. (John 20:30-31) Acts reveals that the ministry of Jesus continues, now working through anointed Believers. Ordinary men and women doing extraordinary things through faith in Jesus. It proves that God will confirm His Word with signs and miracles. And even in the face of threats, or persecution, nothing can stop the spread of the Good News.

In his time, and in that region, lambs were sometimes even raised as family pets. Such was the love and trust between sheep and the shepherd.
