The Shepherd of His Flock Cross features an evocative design by the much-revered German artist Egino Weinert against a timeless square cross. This solid bronze wall cross features Old World craftsmanship and will be cherished for generations to come.
A perfect confirmation gift for those entering the flock or ordination gift for those preparing to lead their own flocks, the cross also features an eyelet that allows it to be easily hung from any wall. At 3.5″ by 3.5″, this cross is on the smaller size, making it perfect to be hung in a hallway, above your bed or above a desk in a study area. The back of the cross features a beautiful German prayer summarizing Jesus’ message in John 10:11-18 (see below for translation). This cross is a Christian gift for all who seek a meaningful distillation of one of the central premises of the faith, the notion of Jesus as shepherd and of us as his flock.
A Biblically-Rooted Heirloom for Your Family
What separates this piece from other, mass-produced, Christian gifts is its sense of reverence and Biblical authenticity. The cross reflects the deeply reverent spirituality of the artist and his dedication to craft. The design itself powerfully evokes the story of the Good Shepherd from John 10:11-18, showing Jesus tending his flock, the faithful at his feet, and caring for the injured sheep that he carries on his shoulders. This depiction of the infinite mercy of Christ also serves as a reminder of Jesus’ words: “I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. They will come in and go out, and find pasture.”
A Beautiful Prayer on the Back of the Cross
The Shepherd of His Flock cross also features a meditation in German on the words of John 10:11-18, set in a beautiful font made specially for this casting. The translation is:
I am the Good Shepherd. I give my life for my sheep. I know them, and they know me. I have come so that they might have life, and have it more abundantly.
