Calvin on Jesus as Shepherd

John CalvinCommenting on Jesus as Shepherd in Psalm 110, John Calvin says,

“As a shepherd he is gentle towards his flock, but fierce and formidable towards wolves and thieves; in like manner, Christ is kind and gentle towards those who commit themselves to his care, while they who willfully and obstinately reject his yoke, shall feel with what awful and terrible power he is armed.”
