Christ is the door, and the good shepherd.
John 10:1 Verily, verily, I say unto you:He that entereth not, through the door, into the fold of the sheep, but goeth up from another place, that man, is, a thief, and, a robber. John 10:2 But, he that entereth through the door, is, shepherd, of the sheep: John 10:3 To him, the porter openeth, and, the sheep, unto his voice, hearken: and, his own sheep, he calleth by name, and leadeth them forth. John 10:4 As soon as, all his own, he hath put forth, before them, he moveth on, and, the sheep, follow him, because they know his voice; John 10:5 But, a stranger, will they in nowise follow, but will flee from him, because they know not the voice, of strangers. John 10:6 This similitude, spake Jesus unto them; but, those men, understood not what the things were which he was speaking unto them. John 10:7 Jesus, therefore, said, againVerily, verily, I say unto you:I, am the door of the sheep: John 10:8 All, as many as came before me, are thieves, and, robbers: but the sheep hearkened nor unto them. John 10:9 I, am the door: through me, if anyone enter, he shall be saved, and shall come in and go out, and, pasture, shall find. John 10:10 The thief, cometh not, save that he may thieve and slay and destroy: I, came, that, life, they might have, and, above measure, might have. John 10:11 I, am the good shepherd: The good shepherd, his life, layeth down, for the sheep. John 10:12 The hireling, even because he is no shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, vieweth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth,and, the wolf, seizeth them and scattereth, John 10:13 Because, a hireling, he is, and hath no care for the sheep. John 10:14 I, am the good shepherd, and know my own, and, my own, know me, John 10:15 Just as, the Father, knoweth me, and, I, know, the Father; and, my life, I lay down for the sheep. John 10:16 And, other sheep, have I, which are not of this fold: those also, I must needs bring, and, unto my voice, will they hearken, and there shall come to be, One flock, One shepherd. John 10:17 Therefore, doth the Father, love, me, because, I, lay down my life, that, again, I may receive it: John 10:18 No one, forced it from me, but, I, lay it down, of myself,Authority, have I, to lay it down, and, authority, have I, again, to receive it: This commandment, received I, from my Father.
Divers opinions of him.
John 10:19 A division, again, took place among the Jews, because of these words. John 10:20 But many from among them were sayingA demon, he hath, and is raving,Why, unto him, do ye hearken? John 10:21 Others, saidThese sayings, are not those of one demonized,Can, a demon, open the eyes of, the blind?
John 10:22 The feast of dedication took place at that time, in Jerusalem: it was, winter, John 10:23 and Jesus was walking in the temple, in the porch of Solomon.
He proveth by his works that he is the Christ the Son of God,
John 10:24 The Jews, therefore, surrounded him, and were saying unto himHow long, holdest thou, our lives, in suspense? If, thou, art the Christ, tell us, plainly. John 10:25 Jesus answered themI told you, and ye believe not: The works which, I, am doing in the name of my Father, the same, bear witness concerning me. John 10:26 But, ye, believe not, because ye are not of my sheep. John 10:27 My sheep, unto my voice, hearken,and, I, know, them, and they follow me, John 10:28 And, I, give unto them life age-abiding, and in nowise shall they perish, unto times age-abiding; and no one shall carry them off out of my hand. John 10:29 What, my Father, hath given me, is, something greater than all, and, no one, can carry off out of the hand of my Father: John 10:30 I and the Father, are, one. John 10:31 The Jews again lifted up stones, that they might stone him. John 10:32 Jesus answered themMany works, have I showed you, noble ones, from my Father: For which of those works are ye stoning me? John 10:33 The Jews answered himConcerning a noble work, are we not stoning thee; but concerning profane speech,and because, thou, being, a man, art making thyself, God. John 10:34 Jesus answered themIs it not written in your law: I, said, Ye are, gods? John 10:35 If, those, he called gods, unto whom, the word of God, cameand the Scripture cannot be broken John 10:36 Of him whom, the Father, hallowed and sent forth into the world, are, ye, sayingThou speakest profanely, because I said, Son of God, I am? John 10:37 If I am not doing the works of my Father, do not believe in me; John 10:38 But, if I am doing them, even though, in me, ye believe not, in the works, believe,that ye may get to know and go on to know, that the Father is, in me, and, I, am, in the Father.

and went again beyond Jordan, where many believed on him.
John 10:40 And he went away again, beyond the Jordan, unto the place where John was at the first, immersing; and he abode there. John 10:41 And, many, came unto him, and were sayingJohn, indeed, did not so much as, one sign; but, all things, whatsoever John said concerning this one, were, true. John 10:42 And, many, believed on him there.
