John 10
6 of 42
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.
7 of 42
But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.
8 of 42
To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.
9 of 42
And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.
10 of 42
And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.
11 of 42
This parable spake Jesus unto them: but they understood not what things they were which he spake unto them.
12 of 42
Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.
13 of 42
All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.
14 of 42
I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
15 of 42
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
16 of 42
I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
17 of 42
But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.
18 of 42
The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.
19 of 42
I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.
20 of 42
As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.
21 of 42
And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.
22 of 42
Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.
23 of 42
No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.
24 of 42
There was a division therefore again among the Jews for these sayings.
25 of 42
And many of them said, He hath a devil, and is mad; why hear ye him?
26 of 42
Others said, These are not the words of him that hath a devil. Can a devil open the eyes of the blind?
27 of 42
And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication, and it was winter.
28 of 42
And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon's porch.
29 of 42
Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto him, How long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the Christ, tell us plainly.
30 of 42
Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father's name, they bear witness of me.
31 of 42
But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.
32 of 42
My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
33 of 42
And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
34 of 42
My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.
35 of 42
I and my Father are one.
36 of 42
Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him.
37 of 42
Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me?
38 of 42
The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.
39 of 42
Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?
40 of 42
If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken;
41 of 42
Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God?
42 of 42
If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not.
43 of 42
But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him.
44 of 42
Therefore they sought again to take him: but he escaped out of their hand,
45 of 42
And went away again beyond Jordan into the place where John at first baptized; and there he abode.
46 of 42
And many resorted unto him, and said, John did no miracle: but all things that John spake of this man were true.
47 of 42
And many believed on him there.

  BIBLE CANON: 5
A biblical canon is a set of texts (or "books") which a particular religious community regards as authoritative scripture. Christians were the first to use the term in reference to scripture.

These bible canons have developed through debate and agreement by the religious authorities.

1. Marcion Canon | BIBLE CANON 140 AD
Marcionism was a religious movement based on the teachings of the 2nd-century Marcion of Sinope. Marcions Canon lists 14 books out of the 27 books in the New Testament. More specifically, these were Luke and Paul's 13 writings. Marcion even rejected the entire Old Testament of 39 books.

2. Muratorian Canon | BIBLE CANON 170 AD
The Muratorian Canon is an ancient list of New Testament books - the oldest such list we have found and lists 22 of the 27 books that were later included in the New Testament of the Christian Bible.

It is noteworthy that the Muratorian Canon omits several epistles that later did win acceptance in the Christian New Testament such as the books of James and 2 Peter.

4. Cheltenham/ Mommsen List | BIBLE CANON 360 AD
The Cheltenham or Mommsen List is a Latin manuscript discovered by the German classical scholar Theodor Mommsen (published 1886) which probably originated in North Africa in the 4th century.

It has 24-book Old Testament and 24-book New Testament which omits Jude and James, and perhaps Hebrews, and questions the epistles of John and Peter.

5. Council of Rome | BIBLE CANON 382 AD
The Council of Rome was a meeting of Catholic Church officials and theologians which took place in 382 under the authority of Pope Damasus I, bishop of Rome.

According to a document appended to some manuscripts, the Council of Rome affirmed the authority of the Old and New Testament canon in a decretal or damasine list.

John 10
  TEXTUAL CRITICISM
It is impossible to think that Jesus spent his short ministry teaching in two such completely different ways, conveying such different contents, and there were simply two traditions, each going back to Jesus, one transmitting 50% of what he said and another one the other 50%, with almost no overlaps. Consequently, for the last 150 or so years scholars have had to choose.

They have almost unanimously, and I think entirely correctly, concluded that the teaching of the historical Jesus is to be sought in the synoptic gospels and that [Gospel of] John represents an advanced theological development, in which meditations on the person and work of Christ are presented in the first person, as if Jesus said them.

IMPORTANT: All Scripture text has context and background. Scripture should never be read literally or in isolation. Always seek clarification from religious scholars and teachers. In general, Scripture adheres to four principles: (1) Literal Meaning - What the Scripture says (2) Historical Setting - The story events; how the Scripture was understood in its time (3) Grammar - The surrounding sentence and paragraph; textual context (4) Synthesis - A comparison with similar Scripture to give a better contextual understanding
