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.

Discussion for John 10:16

  • Maronita for verse 16
    This scripture passage proves the existence of purgatory.
  • Tholithemba for verse 16
    The other sheep are not just the lost sheep of the house of Israel, otherwise Jesus would have said, "There are the LOST sheep that I must bring ". If Jesus was referring to the sheep that they would have re ognized, he would have pointed them out as the 'lost sheep of the house of Israel ' . In this context the lost sheep are part of the other sheep. To Nichodemus Jesus said, "Are you the teacher of Israel and do not know these things? " These are the mysteries which are spiritually discerned that go beyond the house of Israel and when Paul warned against endless geniologies in 1 Tim 1:4 and Titus 3:9 he was warning against mainly the notion that salvation not only belongs to only a certain people, but that certain people are excluded.
