Sheep and donkeys in the Bible

A herd of sheep with a shepherd is a powerful image. Sheep always move around in large groups and they need guidance and protection. With this picture you could also describe a community of believers. But this image of sheep does not fit when work needs to be done. Have you ever seen a sheep carrying a heavy load for its boss? In Biblical times you needed other animals for that. Man's great helper in the Bible is the donkey.

Endorsement by professor dr. Julia Blum, Israel Bible Institute:

So many books have been written about the Bible and about Jesus, that when somebody surprises us with some new look at the Scriptures, it truly feels like a miracle. The book that you are holding in your hands is indeed such a miracle […] I just haven’t been able to put this book down – and I am sure you will not be able to either!
