Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:1 - “I tell you the truth, anyone who sneaks over the wall of a sheepfold, rather than going through the gate, must surely be a thief and a robber!

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:2 - But the one who enters through the gate is the shepherd of the sheep.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:3 - The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep recognize his voice and come to him. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:4 - After he has gathered his own flock, he walks ahead of them, and they follow him because they know his voice.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:5 - They won’t follow a stranger; they will run from him because they don’t know his voice.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:6 - Those who heard Jesus use this illustration didn’t understand what he meant,

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:7 - so he explained it to them: “I tell you the truth, I am the gate for the sheep.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:8 - All who came before me[fn] were thieves and robbers. But the true sheep did not listen to them.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:9 - Yes, I am the gate. Those who come in through me will be saved.[fn] They will come and go freely and will find good pastures.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:10 - The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:11 - “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd sacrifices his life for the sheep.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:12 - A hired hand will run when he sees a wolf coming. He will abandon the sheep because they don’t belong to him and he isn’t their shepherd. And so the wolf attacks them and scatters the flock.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:13 - The hired hand runs away because he’s working only for the money and doesn’t really care about the sheep.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:14 - “I am the good shepherd; I know my own sheep, and they know me,

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:15 - just as my Father knows me and I know the Father. So I sacrifice my life for the sheep.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:16 - I have other sheep, too, that are not in this sheepfold. I must bring them also. They will listen to my voice, and there will be one flock with one shepherd.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:17 - “The Father loves me because I sacrifice my life so I may take it back again.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:18 - No one can take my life from me. I sacrifice it voluntarily. For I have the authority to lay it down when I want to and also to take it up again. For this is what my Father has commanded.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:19 - When he said these things, the people[fn] were again divided in their opinions about him.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:20 - Some said, “He’s demon possessed and out of his mind. Why listen to a man like that?”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:21 - Others said, “This doesn’t sound like a man possessed by a demon! Can a demon open the eyes of the blind?”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:22 - It was now winter, and Jesus was in Jerusalem at the time of Hanukkah, the Festival of Dedication.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:23 - He was in the Temple, walking through the section known as Solomon’s Colonnade.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:24 - The people surrounded him and asked, “How long are you going to keep us in suspense? If you are the Messiah, tell us plainly.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:25 - Jesus replied, “I have already told you, and you don’t believe me. The proof is the work I do in my Father’s name.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:26 - But you don’t believe me because you are not my sheep.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:27 - My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:28 - I give them eternal life, and they will never perish. No one can snatch them away from me,

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:29 - for my Father has given them to me, and he is more powerful than anyone else.[fn] No one can snatch them from the Father’s hand.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:30 - The Father and I are one.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:31 - Once again the people picked up stones to kill him.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:32 - Jesus said, “At my Father’s direction I have done many good works. For which one are you going to stone me?”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:33 - They replied, “We’re stoning you not for any good work, but for blasphemy! You, a mere man, claim to be God.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:34 - Jesus replied, “It is written in your own Scriptures[fn] that God said to certain leaders of the people, ‘I say, you are gods!’[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:35 - And you know that the Scriptures cannot be altered. So if those people who received God’s message were called ‘gods,’

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:36 - why do you call it blasphemy when I say, ‘I am the Son of God’? After all, the Father set me apart and sent me into the world.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:37 - Don’t believe me unless I carry out my Father’s work.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:38 - But if I do his work, believe in the evidence of the miraculous works I have done, even if you don’t believe me. Then you will know and understand that the Father is in me, and I am in the Father.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:39 - Once again they tried to arrest him, but he got away and left them.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:40 - He went beyond the Jordan River near the place where John was first baptizing and stayed there awhile.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:41 - And many followed him. “John didn’t perform miraculous signs,” they remarked to one another, “but everything he said about this man has come true.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:42 - And many who were there believed in Jesus.
