In this morning’s Gospel reading we jump back in time a little bit, to just after Jesus healed the blind man Jerusalem. The Pharisees summoned the man to the synagogue, questioned him, and then threw him out. Afterward, they confronted Jesus. Jesus used the story of the Good Shepherd and his Sheep to try to explain the truth to the Pharisees, but they did not understand. The location of this conversation was not recorded in the Gospel, but it possibly took place outside in the street. This recent photo of a street in Jerusalem shows what the streets could have looked like in Jesus’ time.
