Bible: Jn 10:1-9

Jesus as the Good Shepherd

10:1I tell you the solemn truth, 1  the one who does not enter the sheepfold 2  by the door, 3  but climbs in some other way, is a thief and a robber. 10:2 The one who enters by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. 10:3 The doorkeeper 4  opens the door 5  for him, 6  and the sheep hear his voice. He 7  calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. 8  10:4 When he has brought all his own sheep 9  out, he goes ahead of them, and the sheep follow him because they recognize 10  his voice. 10:5 They will never follow a stranger, 11  but will run away from him, because they do not recognize 12  the stranger’s voice.” 13  10:6 Jesus told them this parable, 14  but they 15  did not understand 16  what he was saying to them.

10:7 So Jesus said to them again, “I tell you the solemn truth, 17  I am the door for the sheep. 18  10:8 All who came before me were 19  thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not listen to them. 20  10:9 I am the door. If anyone enters through me, he will be saved, and will come in and go out, 21  and find pasture. 22
