Discussion for John 10

  • The Father God's daughter-servant
    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.
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    Jesus shared a number of eternal truths in the chapter. These include 27: My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: 28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. We are safe in His Hands in this world and in His Kingdom. To be safe and enjoy this privilege, we must continue to stay at the centre of His Will.

    V34, Genesis 3:5 "For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil." The Jews were acting like they know good from evil but truth is not in them. Jesus said he is the Son of God and that is truth they deny. The actions of Jesus are righteous and can not be proven otherwise. The Jews were evil rejecting what is good.
  • Irene123
    V. 33 - " ... thou being a man ... "; my question is - they saw His works, they heard Him quote from ALL the Law and Prophets, and they agreed He was unlearned. So, who or 'what' were they looking for to be the Messiah? They also said - never man spake like this man. The reason they didn't believe is because they th'ot a NOW deliverer would come to exit the Romans.
  • Irene123
    V. 21 - A lot of people believe Jesus healed then and He heals today, but that does not mean they 'follow' Him. To follow Jesus you follow Acts 2:38, " ... seek ye first ... ", Matt. 6:33. The Kingdom of Heaven is found in Acts 2:38. That's where a Christian life begins.
