Jesus (Yeshua‘) told His disciples to urge the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest fields. In Matthew, Jesus’ words follow His observation that the people who came to hear His teaching were distressed and dispirited, like sheep without a shepherd. In Luke, Jesus used this name of God when He sent seventy disciples out to prepare the cities and villages for His own ministry tour. God’s harvest is needy people, and this name of God clearly indicates that the harvest belongs to God.
