Parable of the Good Shepherd

  border
John 10:1
  "Truly, truly, I say to you, he who does not enter by the door into the fold of the sheep, but climbs up some other way, he is a thief and a robber.
 
John 10:2
  But he who enters by the door is a shepherd of the sheep.
 
John 10:3
  To him the doorkeeper opens, and the sheep hear his voice, and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out.
 
John 10:4
  When he puts forth all his own, he goes ahead of them, and the sheep follow him because they know his voice.
 
John 10:5
  A stranger they simply will not follow, but will flee from him, because they do not know the voice of strangers."
   
John 10:6
  This figure of speech Jesus spoke to them, but they did not understand what those things were which He had been saying to them.
   
John 10:7
  So Jesus said to them again, "Truly, truly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep.
   
John 10:8
  All who came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them.
 
John 10:9
  I am the door; if anyone enters through Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.
 
John 10:10
  The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.
 
John 10:11
  "I am the good shepherd; the good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep.
 
John 10:12
  He who is a hired hand, and not a shepherd, who is not the owner of the sheep, sees the wolf coming, and leaves the sheep and flees, and the wolf snatches them and scatters them.
 
John 10:13
  He flees because he is a hired hand and is not concerned about the sheep.
 
John 10:14
  I am the good shepherd, and I know My own and My own know Me,
 
John 10:15
  even as the Father knows Me and I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep.
 
John 10:16
  I have other sheep, which are not of this fold; I must bring them also, and they will hear My voice; and they will become one flock with one shepherd.
 
John 10:17
  For this reason the Father loves Me, because I lay down My life so that I may take it again.
 
John 10:18
  No one has taken it away from Me, but I lay it down on My own initiative. I have authority to lay it down, and I have authority to take it up again. This commandment I received from My Father."
   
John 10:19
  A division occurred again among the Jews because of these words.
   
John 10:20
  Many of them were saying, "He has a demon and is insane. Why do you listen to Him?"
   
John 10:21
  Others were saying, "These are not the sayings of one demon-possessed. A demon cannot open the eyes of the blind, can he?"
     
   

Jesus Asserts His Deity

   
John 10:22
  At that time the Feast of the Dedication took place at Jerusalem;
   
John 10:23
  it was winter, and Jesus was walking in the temple in the portico of Solomon.
   
John 10:24
  The Jews then gathered around Him, and were saying to Him, "How long will You keep us in suspense? If You are the Christ, tell us plainly."
   
John 10:25
  Jesus answered them, "I told you, and you do not believe; the works that I do in My Father's name, these testify of Me.
   
John 10:26
  But you do not believe because you are not of My sheep.
 
John 10:27
  My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me;
 
John 10:28
  and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand.
 
John 10:29
  My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father's hand.
 
John 10:30
  I and the Father are one."
   
John 10:31
  The Jews picked up stones again to stone Him.
   
John 10:32
  Jesus answered them, "I showed you many good works from the Father; for which of them are you stoning Me?"
   
John 10:33
  The Jews answered Him, "For a good work we do not stone You, but for blasphemy; and because You, being a man, make Yourself out to be God."
   
John 10:34
  Jesus answered them, "Has it not been written in your Law, 'I SAID, YOU ARE GODS'?
   
John 10:35
  If he called them gods, to whom the word of God came (and the Scripture cannot be broken),
 
John 10:36
  do you say of Him, whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world, 'You are blaspheming,' because I said, 'I am the Son of God'?
 
John 10:37
  If I do not do the works of My Father, do not believe Me;
 
John 10:38
  but if I do them, though you do not believe Me, believe the works, so that you may know and understand that the Father is in Me, and I in the Father."
   
John 10:39
  Therefore they were seeking again to seize Him, and He eluded their grasp.
   
John 10:40
  And He went away again beyond the Jordan to the place where John was first baptizing, and He was staying there.
   
John 10:41
  Many came to Him and were saying, "While John performed no sign, yet everything John said about this man was true."
   
John 10:42
  Many believed in Him there.
