The lamb is also a shepherd

For the Lamb at the center of the throne
    will be their shepherd;
‘he will lead them to springs of living water.’[b]
‘And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.’[c]” (Revelation 7:17)

Here we see the confusing yet beautiful metaphor of Jesus Christ both a lamb and a shepherd at the same time! This is a great mystery, how can one be a lamb and a shepherd at the same time? I do not know the answer to that, it is a mystery beyond my comprehension. But what I do know is that Christ deserves eternal praise for coming to Earth as “the Lamb of God” take our punishment upon himself. He, the almighty and everlasting God who was separate from us on account of His holiness, chose to humble Himself, become like an innocent lamb, so that He could establish a relationship with us. Now He is both our passover lamb, yet still our God, King, and Shepherd.
