John 10:1-11, 16

“‘Truly, truly, I say to you, he who does not enter the sheepfold by the door but
climbs in by another way, that man is a thief and a robber; but he who enters by the door is the
shepherd of the sheep. To him the gatekeeper opens; the sheep hear his voice, and he calls his own
sheep by name and leads them out. When he has brought out all his own, he goes before them, and
the sheep follow him, for they know his voice. A stranger they will not follow, but they will flee from
him, for they do not know the voice of strangers.’ This figure Jesus used with them, but they did not
understand what he was saying to them.

So, Jesus again said to them, ‘Truly, truly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. All who came
before me are thieves and robbers; but the sheep did not heed them. I am the door; if any one enters
by me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. The thief comes only to steal and
kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly. I am the good shepherd. The
good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.

And I have other sheep, that are not of this fold; I must bring them also, and they will heed my
voice. So, there shall be one flock, one shepherd.'”
