Bible Reference & Cartoon Description

Matthew 18:10-14 (NLT)
10 “See that you do not look down on one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven. [1]
12 “What do you think? If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one that wandered off? 13 And if he finds it, I tell you the truth, he is happier about that one sheep than about the ninety-nine that did not wander off. 14 In the same way your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should be lost.”

Some manuscripts, heaven. 11 The Son of man came to save what was lost.



Light comes from the sun overhead.
Notice the dappled light & shadows I have created, which is a product of the sunlight shining through the Acacia bush’s leaves & branches.

Shepherd & the lost sheep (lamb)!

This scene is based on the previous one, using similar photo’ reference. I have “zoomed in” on the shepherd’s & lamb’s faces to focus on their expressions. The shepherd has just found his lost sheep, & is delighted, relieved, grateful, after his search for it. The lamb is equally joyful at being rescued from being trapped in that Acacia bush!

The tree behind the shepherd & lamb is the same one in the previous scene, an Umbrella thorn acacia (Acacia tortilis), which is found in semi-steppe shrublands, shrub-steppes, deserts & extreme deserts. I have shown more detail of its leaf structure & those long, sharp thorns which are so characteristic of this shrub/tree.

I have added a butterfly to one of the Acacia bush branches. It is a Large Salmon Arab (Colotis fausta) which can found in hot deserts. This butterfly can be found in Israel, Syria, Turkey, Iran, Afghanistan, India, Arabia, Chad and Somalia.
