Jehovah- Rohi means “The LORD is my Shepherd.”
The greatly beloved Psalm 23 “The Lord is my Shepherd” has given strength and peace to myriad number of believers. This psalm is also a “strait gate and narrow way” road sign (Matthew 7: 13-14) pointing to Jesus Christ as Shepherd. Comparing the Shepherd in both Old and New Testaments is intriguing to say the least and quite phenomenal.
The Lord Jesus Christ is indeed the good Shepherd.     

The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.


 In John 10:11, Jesus Christ says,

“I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd gives his life for the sheep.“

“My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.”

John 10: 27

He makes me to lie down in green pastures: He leads me beside the still waters.

Jesus Christ says, “Verily, verily I say unto you,
I am the door of the sheep.
By Me, if any man enters in, he shall be saved,
and shall go in and out, and find pasture. “
John 10: 7, 9

He restores my soul.

For ye were as sheep going astray;
but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls. “   
I Peter 2: 25
“And I give them eternal life; and they shall never perish…”
John 10: 28
He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.

Jesus Christ says, “I am come that you might have life,
and that you might have it more abundantly.”
John 10: 10

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil:
for Thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.


Jesus Christ says,” A hireling, not the shepherd, doesn’t own the sheep and doesn’t care for them. When the hireling sees a wolf coming, he flees, leaving the sheep. The wolf then devours sheep and scatters the rest.” John 10: 12


“My sheep shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of My hand.
My Father, which gave them to Me, is greater than all;
and no man is able to pluck them out of My Father’s hand.
I and My Father are one.”

John 10: 28-30


“I am the good shepherd,
and I know My sheep, and they know Me.
As God the Father knows Me, even so I know the Father,
and I lay down My life for the sheep.”
John 10: 14-15

Thou prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies:

Thou anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over.
 “And when the chief Shepherd shall appear,
ye shall receive a crown of glory that fades not away.”
I Peter 5:4

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:

and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
“Now the God of peace,

That brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus,

That great shepherd of the sheep,

Through the blood of the everlasting covenant,

Make you perfect in every good work to do His will,

Working in you that which is well-pleasing in His sight,

Through Jesus Christ;

To whom be glory forever and ever.” 
Hebrews 13: 20-21
