What is the spiritual meaning of the word, “sheep” in the Bible?
As always we have to
let the Bible define its own terms:
Psalm 100:3. “Know ye that the LORD he [is] God: [it is] he [that] hath made us, and not
we ourselves; [we are] his people, and the sheep of his pasture.”
(See also: John 10:3-5, 7, 9, 11, 14-16; Ezekiel 34:31; Psalm 79:13; Psalm 95:7)
The Bible is made up of three layers: historical, moral and the deeper spiritual layer. Each historical account tells a spiritual story, and often with a moral lesson.
God teaches in His word that we must study and compare scripture with scripture in order for the Holy Spirit to guide us into truth.

In the book of Psalms we read "Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee." 119:11
Memorizing a verse is an excellent way to keep our thoughts on things above, and to hide God's word in our hearts. It's also a great way to consider and ponder the deeper spiritual meaning.
