b. Life's Shepherding --
For the Believers outside of Religion
(1) The Sheepfold, the Door, and the Pasture -- For the Sheep
1 Truly, truly, I say to you, He who does not enter through the 1adoor into the 2sheepfold, but climbs up from somewhere else, he is a 3bthief and a robber;
2 But he who enters through the adoor is the bshepherd of the sheep.
3 To him the doorkeeper opens, and the 1sheep ahear his voice; and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them bout.
4 When he puts forth all his own, he goes before them, and the sheep afollow him because they know his bvoice.
5 But they will by no means follow a stranger, but will flee from him, because they do not know the voice of strangers.
6 This aparable Jesus spoke to them, but they did not know what those things meant that He spoke to them.
7 Jesus therefore said to them again, Truly, truly, I say to you that I am the adoor of the sheep.
8 All who came before Me are athieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them.
9 I am the 1adoor; if anyone enters through Me, he shall be saved and shall go in and go out and shall find 2pasture.
