A pious, and self righteous man named Amos, confronts Peter to identify a host of sinners who have come to follow the Master. Won’t all this riff raft bring down the holy teachings of the Master? As a good shepherd, doesn’t it make more sense to find the lambs who have gone astray?
Elsewhere, in a field at night, Jonah is a young shepherd who seems to be able to do no right with his older brother, Elisha. It isn’t a woman’s place to be in the field, but their mother has word that is disturbing to Elisha. What’s the rift between him and his brother all about?
Forgiveness will have to wait, when Jonah calls out that a lamb is missing. Elisha seems resentful and prone to lay blame to everyone around him. Will his dedication as a shepherd, and the need to seek after one lost sheep in the dark be a lesson for him?
If the unmerited, kind, gentle, treatment given to a lamb could be granted to a human being, and family member, true reconciliation might have a chance to bloom. What will it take for Elisha to realize how he has treated people? An injury in the lamb rescue turns matters around for him.
