Random Selections: He Taught Them (R. C. Sproul)

This random selection (odd page, first paragraph) is from R. C. Sproul’s Commentary on Mark 6:34.


Notice what Jesus did: He began to teach the people. In the New Testament church, Jesus is the Shepherd of the sheep, but the pastor is the undershepherd, and his primary responsibility is to feed the sheep. We live in a time when churches are weak, and one of the main reasons is that the people demand that the pastor do everything but preach and teach. I believe about 95 percent of the labor of the pastor in the church should be preaching and teaching. The congregation belongs to the Lord; they are His sheep. He has given them pastors as shepherds to keep them fed, giving them food that will not make them sick but will nurture them—the very Word of God. When Jesus set out to feed His sheep, He taught them.

—R. C. Sproul, Mark (St. Andrew’s Expository Commentary), (Reformation Trust, 2011), 141.
