Psalm 22 Harry Ironside, Senior Pastor of The Moody Church from 1930-1948 said “Some one long ago suggested that in Psalm 22 we have the Good Shepherd giving His life for the sheep, in Psalm 23, the Chief Shepherd in resurrection life guiding His people through the wilderness of this world, and in Psalm 24, the Great Shepherd coming again in power and glory to bring in everlasting blessing.” If you have the time – he gives a great message on this Psalm – the Psalm of the Sin Offering.
