Jesus - the Good Shepherd

Bible Text (Revised English Bible)
John 10:14-18

Jesus said, “I am the good shepherd; I know my own
and my own know me, as the Father knows me and I
know the Father; and I lay down my life for the
sheep. But there are other sheep of mine, not
belonging to this fold; I must lead them as well, and
they too will listen to my voice. There will then be
one flock, one shepherd. The Father loves me
because I lay down my life, to receive it back again.
No one takes it away from me; I am laying it down
of my own free will. I have the right to lay it down,
and I have the right to receive it back again; this
charge I have received from my Father.”
