Expository Study of Psalm 23 Reveals the Beauty and Deep Theological Meaning behind a Familiar Part of Scripture

Psalm 23 is one of the most recognizable passages in the whole Bible. Though relatively short, this poetic depiction of God’s love epitomizes Christ’s goodness and provision as he leads his children. Even lifelong Christians will find fresh encouragement by closely studying these familiar words.

David Gibson walks through each verse in Psalm 23, thoroughly examining its 3 depictions of the believer’s union with Christ as sheep and shepherd, traveler and companion, and guest and host. Gibson provides canonical context for the Psalm’s beautiful imagery, inspiring praise and wonder as readers reflect on the loving Shepherd who meets every need.

  • Rich Theology: Adapted from 3 engaging sermons by David Gibson
  • Expository: Closely examines Psalm 23’s imagery and what it reveals about the relationship between Christ and his followers
  • Uplifting and Informative: Encourages deep reflection on Christ’s provision, comfort, and eternal strength
  • With a Foreword by Sinclair Ferguson
