The image of Jesus as good shepherd draws on the imagery of Psalm 23 and is a familiar symbol for God/Jesus used in both the Old and New Testaments. Here Jesus makes a contrast between the shepherd and a hired hand, and the ways in which they care for the sheep. He clearly designates himself as the Good Shepherd, making it no longer a symbol but an opportunity for a relationship as He knows his sheep by name.
