GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
ACCORDING TO JOHN
Van Nattan's questions are in blue and are NOT inspired and final. You do not
have to agree with Steve. Also, if you do not understand something you are reading,
do not stop and dwell on it too long. Just keep reading and deal with what you
10:1 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.
But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.
3 To him
the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep
by name, and leadeth them out.
4 And when he putteth forth his own sheep,
he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.
And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not
the voice of strangers.
6 This parable spake Jesus unto them: but they understood
not what things they were which he spake unto them.
7 Then said Jesus unto
them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.
All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear
9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall
go in and out, and find pasture.
10 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.
11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd
giveth his life for the sheep.
12 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.
The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.
14 I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.
As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for
16 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
17 Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life,
that I might take it again.
18 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.
19 There was a division therefore
again among the Jews for these sayings.
20 And many of them said, He hath
a devil, and is mad; why hear ye him?
21 Others said, These are not the words
of him that hath a devil. Can a devil open the eyes of the blind?
22 And it
was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication, and it was winter.
23 And Jesus
walked in the temple in Solomon's porch.
24 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.
25 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.
26 But ye
believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.
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.
29 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no
man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.
30 I and my Father are
31 Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him.
32 Jesus answered
them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works
do ye stone me?
33 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
34 Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are
35 If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture
cannot be broken;
36 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?
If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not.
38 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.
39 Therefore they sought again to take him:
but he escaped out of their hand,
40 And went away again beyond Jordan into
the place where John at first baptized; and there he abode.
41 And many resorted
unto him, and said, John did no miracle: but all things that John spake of this
man were true.
42 And many believed on him there.
the key verse of John:
20:31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ,
Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.
to help you decide if you believe the Gospel in John Chapter Ten
1-10- Do you understand that Jesus demands you come to find salvation, forgiveness,
and eternal life ONLY by him? If you try to come by some other religion, or by
some Pope or preacher's "PLAN," you will be lost. Will you flee from
any alleged gospel other than the one you are now reading?
11-15- Are you following the Shepherd, Jesus, or are you following an hireling
or a wolf?
27-30- If some preacher tells you you can lose your salvation, will you believe
him? Jesus said you cannot get away from him EVER! Have you thanked Jesus Christ
for keeping you safe in his hand? Thank him out loud right now, he likes to hear
us say these things right out loud.
42- Many people believed on Jesus. Of course, you can tell many more did not believe
on him. Are you eager to be one of those who believe on him, even if it means
other people will not approve of your faith in Jesus Christ?
