John Chapter 10 (Index)

Chapters: 1





















001  Verily, 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.

002  But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.

003  To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.

004  And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.

005  And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.

006  This parable spake Jesus unto them: but they understood not what things they were which he spake unto them.

007  Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.

008  All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.

009  I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.

010  The 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.

011  I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.

012  But 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.

013  The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.

014  I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.

015  As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.

016  And 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.

017  Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.

018  No 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.

019  There was a division therefore again among the Jews for these sayings.

020  And many of them said, He hath a devil, and is mad; why hear ye him?

021  Others said, These are not the words of him that hath a devil. Can a devil open the eyes of the blind?

022  And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication, and it was winter.

023  And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon's porch.

024  Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto him, How long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the Christ, tell us plainly.

025  Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father's name, they bear witness of me.

026  But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.

027  My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:

028  And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

029  My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.

030  I and my Father are one.

031  Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him.

032  Jesus answered them, Many good works have I showed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me?

033  The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.

034  Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?

035  If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken;

036  Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God?

037  If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not.

038  But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him.

039  Therefore they sought again to take him: but he escaped out of their hand,

040  And went away again beyond Jordan into the place where John at first baptized; and there he abode.

041  And many resorted unto him, and said, John did no miracle: but all things that John spake of this man were true.

042  And many believed on him there.
