Flashcards in John Chapter 10 Deck (42):

John 10:1

"I tell you the truth, the man who does not enter the sheep pen by the gate, but climbs in by some other way, is a thief and a robber.


John 10:2

The man who enters by the gate is the shepherd of his sheep.


John 10:3

The watchman opens the gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out.


John 10:4

When he has brought out all his own, he goes on ahead of them, and his sheep follow him because they know his voice.


John 10:5

But they will never follow a stranger; in fact, they will run away from him because they do not recognize a stranger's voice."


John 10:6

Jesus used this figure of speech, but they did not understand what he was telling them.


John 10:7

Therefore Jesus said again, "I tell you the truth, I am the gate for the sheep.

All who ever came before me were thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not listen to them.


John 10:9

I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. He will come in and go out, and find pasture.


John 10:10

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.


John 10:11

"I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.

The hired hand is not the shepherd who owns the sheep. So when he sees the wolf coming, he abandons the sheep and runs away. Then the wolf attacks the flock and scatters it.

The man runs away because he is a hired hand and cares nothing for the sheep.


John 10:14

"I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me -


John 10:15

just as the Father knows me and I know the Father - and I lay down my life for the sheep.


John 10:16

I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd.


John 10:17

The reason my Father loves me is that I lay down my life - only to take it up again.


John 10:18

No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. This command I received from my Father."


John 10:19

At these words the Jews were again divided.


John 10:20

Many of them said, "He is demon-possessed and raving mad. Why listen to him?"


John 10:21

But others said, "These are not the sayings of a man possessed by a demon. Can a demon open the eyes of the blind?"


John 10:22

Then came the Feast of Dedication at Jerusalem. It was winter,


John 10:23

and Jesus was in the temple area walking in Solomon's Colonnade.


John 10:24

The Jews gathered around him, saying, "How long will you keep us in suspense? If you are the Christ, tell us plainly."


John 10:25

Jesus answered, "I did tell you, but you do not believe. The miracles I do in my Father's name speak for me,


John 10:26

but you do not believe because you are not my sheep.


John 10:27

My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.


John 10:28

I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand.


John 10:29

My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all ; no one can snatch them out of my Father's hand.


John 10:30

I and the Father are one."


John 10:31

Again the Jews picked up stones to stone him,


John 10:32

but Jesus said to them, "I have shown you many great miracles from the Father. For which of these do you stone me?"


John 10:33

"We are not stoning you for any of these," replied the Jews, "but for blasphemy, because you, a mere man, claim to be God."


John 10:34

Jesus answered them, "Is it not written in your Law, 'I have said you are gods'?


John 10:35

If he called them 'gods,' to whom the word of God came - and the Scripture cannot be broken -


John 10:36

what about the one whom the Father set apart as his very own and sent into the world? Why then do you accuse me of blasphemy because I said, 'I am God's Son'?


John 10:37

Do not believe me unless I do what my Father does.


John 10:38

But if I do it, even though you do not believe me, believe the miracles, that you may know and understand that the Father is in me, and I in the Father."


John 10:39

John 10:42

And in that place many believed in Jesus.
