John Chapter 10

John 10:7

joh 10:7

I am the door of the sheep

The shepherd work of our Lord has three aspects:

(1) As the "Good" Shepherd He gives His life for the sheep (Joh 10:11) and is, therefore, "the door" by which "if any man enter in he shall be saved." (Joh 10:9).

This answers to Psalm 22.

(2) He is the "Great" Shepherd, "brought again from the dead" (Heb 13:20) to care for and make perfect the sheep.

This answers to Psalm 23.

(3) He is the "Chief" Shepherd, who is coming in glory to give crowns of reward to the faithful shepherds (Pe1 5:4).

This answers to Psalm 24.
