Wesley's Notes for John 10:16


10:16 I have also other sheep - Which he foreknew; which are not of this fold - Not of the Jewish Church or nation, but Gentiles. I must bring them likewise - Into my Church, the general assembly of those whose names are written in heaven. And there shall be one flock - (Not one fold, a plain false print) no corrupt or divided flocks remaining. And one shepherd - Who laid down his life for the sheep, and will leave no hireling among them. The unity both of the flock and the shepherd shall he completed in its season. The shepherd shall bring all into one flock: and the whole flock shall hear the one shepherd.


People's Bible Notes for John 10:16


Joh 10:16 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold. Not Jews, of whom his followers then were, but Gentiles who would soon be called to him. These would hear his voice, enter through the door, into the same fold as the Jewish Christians, so that there would be "one fold and one shepherd". There is only one Church and one door into it, and one Shepherd over it.

    John 10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: Jesus said to the Disciples follow me. Matthew 4:19 And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men. Now Apostle Paul said follow me . 1 Corinthians 11:1 Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ. Now Jesus is using Paul for us Gentiles to follow him. I follow Paul thru Jesus Christ our Lord

    In Jesus Christ, I greet you! I'm wondering if verse 12 concerning "the wolf" refers to the contemporary charlatans that preach for gain and lust? It would seem to me that those that gather around them, most likely aren't The Lord's sheep.
