Ezekiel 34:11–12, 15–17. It was ordinary practice to describe the kings of Judah as shepherds in imitation of similar descriptions of God. Here God is described as unhappy with those who have been shepherding the flock (that is, the human rulers), so God will personally intervene to take on the responsibility. Those who have grown "sleek and strong" at the expense of the weak and injured will be "destroyed"—selected to be eaten. But God will care for the weak, even if they aren't intended for the cooking fire

1 Corinthians 15:20–26, 28. Christ's victory is cosmic. It will spread the way a river spreads across a plain, beginning with those who belong to Christ and embracing all things, until it has conquered even so stubborn an enemy as death. Then Christ will turn it all over to the Father.

Matthew 25:31–46. Judgment is based on our care—or lack of care—for "the least" among us. In other words, we must learn to shepherd as God does.
