Parable of the Good Shepherd

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 R634 thief and a robber. 2 "But he who enters by the door is a R635 shepherd of the sheep. 3 "To him the doorkeeper opens, and the sheep hear his R636 voice, and he calls his own sheep by name and leads R637 them out. 4 "When he puts forth all his own, he goes ahead of them, and the sheep follow him because they know his R638 voice. 5 "A stranger they simply will not follow, but will flee from him, because they do not know the R639 voice of strangers." 6 This figure R640 of speech Jesus spoke to them, but they did not understand what those things were which He had been saying to them.

7 So Jesus said to them again, "Truly, truly, I say to you, I am the R641 door of the sheep. 8 "All who came before Me are thieves R642 and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them. 9 "I R643 am the door; if anyone enters through Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. 10 "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may R644 have life, and have F116 it abundantly.

11 "I R645 am the good shepherd; the good shepherd lays R646 down His life for the sheep. 12 "He who is a hired hand, and not a shepherd, R647 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. 13 "He flees because he is a hired hand and is not concerned about the sheep. 14 "I R648 am the good shepherd, and I R649 know My own and My own know Me, 15 even as the R650 Father knows Me and I know the Father; and I R651 lay down My life for the sheep. 16 "I have other R652 sheep, which are not of this fold; I must bring them also, and they will hear My voice; and they will become one R653 flock with one R654 shepherd. 17 "For this reason the Father loves Me, because I lay R655 down My life so that I may take it again. 18 "No R656 one has taken it away from Me, but I lay R657 it down on My own initiative. I have authority to lay it down, and I have authority to take it up again. This R658 commandment I received from My Father."

19 A R659 division occurred again among the Jews because of these words. 20 Many of them were saying, "He has R660 a demon and is R661 insane. Why do you listen to Him?" 21 Others were saying, "These are not the sayings of one demon-possessed. R662 A R663 demon cannot open the eyes of the blind, can he?"

Jesus Asserts His Deity

22 At that time the Feast of the Dedication took place at Jerusalem; 23 it was winter, and Jesus was walking in the temple in the portico of Solomon. R664 24 The R665 Jews then gathered around Him, and were saying to Him, "How long will F117 You keep us in suspense? If You are the F118 Christ, tell us plainly." R666 25 Jesus answered them, "I R667 told you, and you do not believe; the R668 works that I do in My Father's name, these testify of Me. 26 "But you do not believe because you R669 are not of My sheep. 27 "My sheep hear R670 My voice, and I R671 know them, and they follow Me; 28 and I give eternal R672 life to them, and they will never perish; and no R673 one will snatch them out of My hand. 29 "My F119 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. 30 "I R674 and the Father are one." F120

31 The Jews picked R675 up stones again to stone Him. 32 Jesus answered them, "I showed you many good works from the Father; for which of them are you stoning Me?" 33 The Jews answered Him, "For a good work we do not stone You, but for blasphemy; R676 and because You, being a man, make R677 Yourself out to be God." 34 Jesus answered them, "Has it not been written in your R678 Law, R679 `I R680 SAID, YOU ARE GODS'? 35 "If he called them gods, to whom the word of God came (and the Scripture cannot be broken), 36 do you say of Him, whom the Father sanctified R681 and sent R682 into the world, `You are blaspheming,' because I said, `I R683 am the Son of God'? 37 "If R684 I do not do the works of My Father, do not believe Me; 38 but if I do them, though you do not believe Me, believe the R685 works, so that you may know F121 and understand that the R686 Father is in Me, and I in the Father." 39 Therefore they R687 were seeking again to seize Him, and He R688 eluded their grasp.

40 And He went away again R689 beyond the Jordan to the place where John was first baptizing, and He was staying there. 41 Many came to Him and were saying, "While John performed no sign, R690 yet everything R691 John said about this man was true." 42 Many R692 believed in Him there.
