Psalm 23: Finding Safety in the Wilderness | The Holy Land | Season 2 – Episode 1

The wilderness is a place of hardship and danger. At first glance at the barren landscape, it looks impossible for people and animals to survive in it. Yet, as Jack Beck says, “It’s not about what you don’t have, but what you do.” We’ll look at two “characters” that appear regularly in the Bible—wilderness and shepherds—and answer these questions: How could David survive in this desperate land and even find comfort enough to write Psalm 23? Why is Jesus called the Good Shepherd? And how do we find what we need when we experience times of desperation?

In the season 2 opener, Jack Beck invites a friend, Dr. Con Campbell, to the Wadi Qelt in the Judean Wilderness to show the harshness of this tough environment. Standing atop a mountain between Jerusalem and the Dead Sea, they ponder the role of shepherds to their sheep. From the nomadic shepherds to Jesus, who identifies Himself as the Good Shepherd in John 10:11, we see the role of the shepherd is to protect, sustain, and comfort his flock. And for those who treasure the popular Psalm 23 passage, you’ll come to an even richer understanding of these meaningful verses. Then we’ll meet, Khalid, a goat and sheep herder whose family has been herding for generations. And while the animals are interesting to watch, we definitely learn the deeper meaning of the great responsibility of the shepherd to protect his sheep, as well as the trust it takes for them to depend on him for their very lives.

Join us as we learn that the key to survival in this wilderness, and in your own personal times of wilderness, is who you put your trust in.
