“I am the good shepherd.”

Daily Gospel Reading – John 10:11-18jesusisthegoodshepherd

11 “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep. 12 But he who is a hired hand, and not a shepherd, who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming, and leaves the sheep, and runs away. So the wolf catches the sheep and scatters them. 13 The hired hand runs away because he is a hired hand and does not care about the sheep.

14 “I am the good shepherd. I know My sheep and am known by My own. 15 Even as the Father knows Me, so I know the Father. And I lay down My life for the sheep. 16 I have other sheep who are not of this fold. I must also bring them, and they will hear My voice. There will be one flock and one shepherd. 17 Therefore My Father loves Me because I lay down My life that I may take it up again. 18 No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down Myself. I have the power to lay it down, and I have the power to take it up again. I received this command from My Father.”
