043:010:001
Verily,
verily,
I say unto you,
He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold,
but climbeth up some other way,
the same is a thief and a robber.


043:010:002
But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.


043:010:003
To him the porter openeth;
and the sheep hear his voice:
and he calleth his own sheep by name,
and leadeth them out.


043:010:004
And when he putteth forth his own sheep,
he goeth before them,
and the sheep follow him:
for they know his voice.


043:010:005
And a stranger will they not follow,
but will flee from him:
for they know not the voice of strangers.


043:010:006
This parable spake Jesus unto them:
but they understood not what things they were which he spake unto them.


043:010:007
Then said Jesus unto them again,
Verily,
verily,
I say unto you,
I am the door of the sheep.


043:010:008
All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers:
but the sheep did not hear them.


043:010:009
I am the door:
by me if any man enter in,
he shall be saved,
and shall go in and out,
and find pasture.


043:010:010
The thief cometh not,
but for to steal,
and to kill,
and to destroy:
I am come that they might have life,
and that they might have it more abundantly.


043:010:011
I am the good shepherd:
the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.


043:010:012
But he that is an hireling,
and not the shepherd,
whose own the sheep are not,
seeth the wolf coming,
and leaveth the sheep,
and fleeth:
and the wolf catcheth them,
and scattereth the sheep.


043:010:013
The hireling fleeth,
because he is an hireling,
and careth not for the sheep.


043:010:014
I am the good shepherd,
and know my sheep,
and am known of mine.


043:010:015
As the Father knoweth me,
even so know I the Father:
and I lay down my life for the sheep.


043:010:016
And other sheep I have,
which are not of this fold:
them also I must bring,
and they shall hear my voice;
and there shall be one fold,
and one shepherd.


043:010:017
Therefore doth my Father love me,
because I lay down my life,
that I might take it again.


043:010:018
No man taketh it from me,
but I lay it down of myself.
I have power to lay it down,
and I have power to take it again.
This commandment have I received of my Father.


043:010:019
There was a division therefore again among the Jews for these sayings.


043:010:020
And many of them said,
He hath a devil,
and is mad;
why hear ye him?


043:010:021
Others said,
These are not the words of him that hath a devil.
Can a devil open the eyes of the blind?


043:010:022
And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication,
and it was winter.


043:010:023
And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon's porch.


043:010:024
Then came the Jews round about him,
and said unto him,
How long dost thou make us to doubt?
If thou be the Christ,
tell us plainly.


043:010:025
Jesus answered them,
I told you,
and ye believed not:
the works that I do in my Father's name,
they bear witness of me.


043:010:026
But ye believe not,
because ye are not of my sheep,
as I said unto you.


043:010:027
My sheep hear my voice,
and I know them,
and they follow me:


043:010:028
And I give unto them eternal life;
and they shall never perish,
neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.


043:010:029
My Father,
which gave them me,
is greater than all;
and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.


043:010:030
I and my Father are one.


043:010:031
Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him.


043:010:032
Jesus answered them,
Many good works have I shewed you from my Father;
for which of those works do ye stone me?


043:010:033
The Jews answered him,
saying,
For a good work we stone thee not;
but for blasphemy;
and because that thou,
being a man,
makest thyself God.


043:010:034
Jesus answered them,
Is it not written in your law,
I said,
Ye are gods?


043:010:035
If he called them gods,
unto whom the word of God came,
and the scripture cannot be broken;


043:010:036
Say ye of him,
whom the Father hath sanctified,
and sent into the world,
Thou blasphemest;
because I said,
I am the Son of God?


043:010:037
If I do not the works of my Father,
believe me not.


043:010:038
But if I do,
though ye believe not me,
believe the works:
that ye may know,
and believe,
that the Father is in me,
and I in him.


043:010:039
Therefore they sought again to take him:
but he escaped out of their hand,


043:010:040
And went away again beyond Jordan into the place where John at first baptized;
and there he abode.


043:010:041
And many resorted unto him,
and said,
John did no miracle:
but all things that John spake of this man were true.


043:010:042
And many believed on him there.
