10:1 Most assuredly, I tell you, he who doesn`t enter by the door into the sheep fold, but climbs up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.
10:2 But he who enters in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.
10:3 The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. He calls his own sheep by name, and leads them out.
10:6 Jesus spoke this parable to them, but they didn`t understand what he was telling them.
10:7 Jesus therefore said to them again, "Most assuredly, I tell you, I am the sheep`s door.
10:8 All who came before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep didn`t listen to them.
10:9 I am the door. If anyone enters in by me, he will be saved, and will go in and go out, and will find pasture.
10:10 The thief only comes to steal, kill, and destroy. I came that they may have life, and may have it abundantly.
10:11 I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.
10:12 He who is a hired hand, and not a shepherd, who doesn`t own the sheep, sees the wolf coming, leaves the sheep, and flees. The wolf snatches the sheep, and scatters them.
10:14 I am the good shepherd. I know my own, and I`m known by my own;
10:15 even as the Father knows me, and I know the Father. I lay down my life for the sheep.
10:16 I have other sheep, which are not of this fold. I must bring them also, and they will hear my voice. They will become one flock with one shepherd.
10:17 Therefore the Father loves me, because I lay down my life, that I may take it again.
10:19 Therefore a division arose again among the Jews because of these words.
10:20 Many of them said, "He has a demon, and is mad! Why do you listen to him?"
10:22 It was the Feast of the Dedication at Jerusalem.
10:24 The Jews therefore came around him and said to him, "How long will you hold us in suspense? If you are the Christ, tell us plainly."
10:25 Jesus answered them, "I told you, and you don`t believe. The works that I do in my Father`s name, these testify about me.
10:26 But you don`t believe, because you are not of my sheep, as I told you.
10:30 I and the Father are one."
10:31 Therefore Jews took up stones again to stone him.
10:32 Jesus answered them, "I have shown you many good works from my Father. For which of those works do you stone me?"
10:34 Jesus answered them, "Isn`t it written in your law, `I said, you are gods?`
10:35 If he called them gods, to whom the word of God came (and the scripture can`t be broken),
10:36 Do you say of him whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world, `You blaspheme,` because I said, `I am the Son of God?`
10:37 If I don`t do the works of my Father, don`t believe me.
10:38 But if I do them, though you don`t believe me, believe the works; that you may know and believe that the Father is in me, and I in the Father."
10:39 They sought again to seize him, and he went forth out of their hand.
10:41 Many came to him. They said, "John indeed did no sign, but everything whatever that John said about this man is true."
10:42 Many believed in him there.
