Summary: Pastor Ken Hutcherson 10:14 “I am the good shepherd. I 33 know my own 34 and my own know me – 10:15 just as the Father knows me and I know the Father – and I lay down my life 35 for 36 the sheep. 10:16 I have 37 other sheep that do not come from 38 this sheepfold. 39 I must bring them too, and they will listen to my voice, 40 so that 41 there will be one flock and 42 one shepherd. 10:17 This is why the Father loves me 43 – because I lay down my life, 44 so that I may take it back again. 10:18 No one takes it away from me, but I lay it down 45 of my own free will. 46 I have the authority 47 to lay it down, and I have the authority 48 to take it back again. This commandment 49 I received from my Father.” 10:19 Another sharp division took place among the Jewish people 50 because of these words. 10:20 Many of them were saying, “He is possessed by a demon and has lost his mind! 51 Why do you listen to him?” 10:21 Others said, “These are not the words 52 of someone possessed by a demon. A demon cannot cause the blind to see, 53 can it?” 54 Jesus at the Feast of Dedication 10:22 Then came the feast of the Dedication 55 in Jerusalem. 56 10:23 It was winter, 57 and Jesus was walking in the temple area 58 inSolomon’s Portico. 59 10:24 The Jewish leaders 60 surrounded him and asked, 61 “How long will you keep us in suspense? 62 If you are the Christ, 63 tell us plainly.” 64
