The Good Shepherd – Murillo

This portrait by E. Murillo shows Jesus Christ as a young boy with his left hand on the lost sheep, while his right hand clutches a shepherds crook.

"I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd giveth his life for his sheep." — John 10:11

"What man of you that hath an hundred sheep: and if he shall lose one of them, doth he not leave the ninety-nine in the desert, and go after that which was lost, until he find it? And when he hath found it, lay it upon his shoulders, rejoicing: And coming home, call together his friends and neighbors, saying to them: Rejoice with me, because I have found my sheep that was lost?" — Luke 15:4-6
