Jesus the Good Shepard

7 Then Jesus said to them again, “Most assuredly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. 8 All who ever came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them. 9 I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. 10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. 11 I am the good shepard. The good shepard gives His life for the sheep. 12 But a hireling, he who is not the shepard, one who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and scatters them. 13 The hireling flees because he is a hireling and does not care about the sheep. 14 I am the good shepard; and I know My sheep, and am known by My own. 15 As the Father knows Me, even so I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep. 16And other sheep I have which are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they will hear My voice; and there will be one flock and one shepard. 17 “Therefore My Father loves Me, because I lay down my life that I may take it again. 18 No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again, this command I have received from My Father.”

John 10:7-18
