Role of Shepherds in Biblical Times?

Answer

The role of a shepherd is to tend to their sheep, and this was true as well in Biblical times. In the Bible however, shepherds are often used as metaphors for how religious leaders, such as pastors, are supposed to take care of the people in their congregation; their flock. Shepherds were very close with their sheep, and not only did they tend to them and guide them, they protected them as well. Again, this relationship is often used as a metaphor for how leaders are supposed to protect their flock from 'wolves' who would do damage to people's lives.
