Here we see the second half of Jesus' explanation of his parable in John 10:1-5. The claim we will see Him make in verses 11-16 is, "I AM the Good Shepherd." That means we are sheep, which can sound a little insulting until you realize that despite our weakness and sin, the Good Shepherd came to lay down His life for us. We close rejoicing in our Shepherd, who gave His life so we might be a part of the sheepfold of God.
