The figurative words of the shepherd and the sheep: 10.1-39


The good shepherd as a counter-image to thieves and robbers

John 10.1Amen, amen, I tell you: Anyone who does not enter the sheepfold through the door, but gets in somewhere else, is a thief and a robber.John 10.2But whoever enters through the door is the shepherd of the sheep.Joh 10,3The doorkeeper opens to him and the sheep listen to his voice; he calls the sheep that belong to him one by one by name and leads them out.John 10.4When he has driven out all his sheep, he goes ahead of them, and the sheep follow him; because they know his voice.Joh 10,5But they will not follow a stranger, but will flee from him because they do not know the voice of the stranger.John 10.6Jesus told them this parable; but they did not understand the meaning of what he had told them.John 10.7Jesus further said to them: Amen, amen, I say to you, I am the door to the sheep.Joh 10,8All who came before me are thieves and robbers; but the sheep did not listen to them.Joh 10,9I am the door; whoever enters through me will be saved; he will go in and out and find pasture.John 10:10The thief only comes to steal, slaughter, and destroy; I came so that they might have life and have it in abundance..

The good shepherd as a counter-image to the day laborer

John 10:11I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives his life for the sheep.John 10:12But the paid servant, who is not a shepherd and to whom the sheep do not belong, abandons the sheep and flees when he sees the wolf coming; and the wolf tears them up and chases them apart. He flees,John 10:13because he's just a paid servant and doesn't care about the sheep.John 10:14I am the good shepherd; I know mine and mine know meJohn 10.15how the father knows me and how I know the father; and I give my life for the sheep.John 10.16I have other sheep that are not from this stable; I have to lead them too and they will listen to my voice; then there will be only one flock and one shepherd.John 10:17That is why the Father loves me, because I give my life to take it again.John 10.18Nobody snatches it from me, but I give it up of my own free will. I have power to give it and I have power to take it again. I received this assignment from my father.John 10:19Because of this speech, there was renewed division among the Jews.John 10:20Many of them said: He is demon-possessed and is talking madly. Why are you listening to him?John 10:21Others said: No man possessed speaks like that. Can a demon open the eyes of the blind?.

The dispute at the temple dedication

John 10:22Around this time the temple dedication took place in Jerusalem. It was winterJohn 10:23and Jesus paced up and down the temple in Solomon's hall.John 10:24Then the Jews surrounded him and asked him: How much longer are you going to hold us off? If you are the Messiah, tell us openly!John 10:25Jesus answered them: I told you, but you do not believe. The works I do in my Father's name bear testimony of me;John 10:26but you do not believe, because you do not belong to my sheep.John 10:27My sheep listen to my voice; I know them and they follow me.John 10:28I give them everlasting life. They will never perish and no one will snatch them from my hand.John 10:29My father who gave them to me is greater than all and no one can snatch them from my father's hand.John 10:30I and the father are one.John 10:31Then the Jews again picked up stones to stone him.John 10:32Jesus countered them: I have done many good works before your eyes on behalf of the Father. For which of these works will you stone me?John 10:33The Jews answered him, We do not stone you for a good work, but for blasphemy; because you are only human and make yourself god.John 10:34Jesus replied: Doesn't your law say: I said: You are gods?John 10:35If he has called those people gods to whom the word of God has come, and if the scriptures cannot be abolished,John 10:36can you then say of him whom the Father has sanctified and sent into the world: You blaspheme God - because I said: I am the Son of God?John 10:37If I don't do my father's works, don't believe me.John 10:38But if I do them then at least believe the works if you don't believe me. Then you will recognize and understand that the Father is in me and I am in the Father.John 10:39Again they wanted to arrest him; but he eluded her grasp..
