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.

    I agree, Satan is full of lies and deceit. Jesus is the one that gave his life to save us. I would rather follow Jesus.

    "I am the Good Shepherd: the Good Shepherd gives His life for the sheep." John 10:11 The entire purpose and duty of the Shepherd is to care for the sheep. In whatever things we need whether for food and clothing and shelter, or protection from predators Jesus cares for us continually, and puts Himself between us and every danger or threat. If He leads us up into rocky and sparse places He is still our Good Shepherd. If we need washing and grooming, He does so with love and skill and the right firmness and gentleness. If we are hurt or injured or sick, He cares for us to make us strong and healthy again. If one wanders away because we are stupid and simple, and need to be watched! then He knows where to search and find us, and how to bring us back to safety. The Good Shepherd puts our needs first, and knows well how to maintain us. If we want to help Him be a Good Shepherd for others, then we need to learn from Him everything there is to know about the business of being a shepherd.
