Bible Study

Thanks so much, Caleb, for expounding on John 10, where Jesus uses the metaphor of the shepherd to explain His role in the world. He says that people who are going to a farm must go in through the front gate. If they try to sneak in another way, they’re just thieves. The shepherd also goes through the front gate to tend to his sheep on the farm. Inside, the sheep know him and follow the sound of his voice; indeed, sheep are natural followers. The Gospel explains that Jesus is using figurative language to try to describe himself, but the people still don’t understand what he means, so Jesus re-explains that He is the good Shepherd who will lead, protect, and even die for His sheep.
