I am the door

<< John 10 >>
King
James
Version

1Verily,
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.
2But
he that entereth in by the door is
the shepherd of the sheep.

3To
him the porter openeth; and the
sheep hear his voice
: and he calleth
his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.
4And
when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the
sheep follow him: for they know his voice.
5And
a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know
not the voice of strangers.
6This
parable spake Jesus unto them: but they understood not what things they
were which he spake unto them.
7Then
said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you,  I am
the
door of the sheep.

8All
that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not
hear them.
9 I
am
the door:
by me
if any man enter in, he shall be saved,
and shall go
in and out, and find pasture.
10The
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.

11 I
am
the good shepherd:
the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
12But
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.
13The
hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the
sheep.
14 I
am
the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.
15As
the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my
life for the sheep.
16And
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
.
17Therefore
doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take
it again.
18No
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.

19There
was a division therefore again among the Jews for these sayings.
20And
many of them said, He hath a devil, and is mad; why hear ye him?
21Others
said, These are not the words of him that hath a devil. Can a devil
open the eyes of the blind?

Isa
35:4
 Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with
vengeance,
even God with a
recompence;
he will come and
save you.
