Shepherd of Israel (CD)
Author: Dwight Pryor
Product code: CDS13
An in-depth study of Psalm 23. Dwight emphasises the importance of and spiritual riches to be found in understanding this Psalm in its original agrarian setting, time and culture, rather than with the Western technological mind-set of today.
Along with the Lord's Prayer, it is one of the two most memorized scriptures in the Bible. Can anything fresh or new be squeezed from this familiar scripture? Yes -- if we go back and look at it in its original setting (the wilderness of Judea) and understand the life and imagery of shepherding. David, the traditional author, was himself a shepherd.
Dwight carefully examines the Hebrew text of Psalm 23 and connects those words with prophetic scriptures, especially Jeremiah and Isaiah. Verse by verse and word by word, he derives special applications for our relationship to the Lord God, who is the Shepherd of Israel.
- Life in the Wilderness (78 minutes)
- The True Pasture & Gathering Place of Israel (78 minutes)
- A Shepherd Who Would Be King (68 minutes)

About the Author
(1945-2011) Founder of the Center for Judaic-Christian Studies in Dayton, Ohio. He was also a founding board member of the Jerusalem School of Synoptic Research in Israel. While studying in the Land, he came to realise the critical importance of understanding Christianity's Hebraic origins and dimensions and worked with both Christian and Jewish scholars there researching the backgrounds to the life and teachings of Yeshua Mi Natzeret, (Jesus of Nazareth) the Jewish Messiah.
As one of the most widely acclaimed teachers on the subject, for over 25 years Dwight and his wife Keren travelled world wide with their teaching and preaching ministry, seeking to make available to the Church an ever-growing wealth of study materials.
Their main aim was to equip believers for a fruitful life of participation in the purposes of God by learning how to think biblically. With this in mind they created a way for disciples, serious about understanding the Bible and yearning to get back to the Jewish/Hebraic foundations of their faith, to benefit from the teaching ministry of Dwight on an ongoing basis.
