Bible: John 10:18, 12
10:18 No one takes it away from me, but I lay it down 1 of my own free will. 2 I have the authority 3 to lay it down, and I have the authority 4 to take it back again. This commandment 5 I received from my Father.” 10:12 The hired hand, 6 who is not a shepherd and does not own sheep, sees the wolf coming and abandons 7 the sheep and runs away. 8 So the wolf attacks 9 the sheep and scatters them.
