Mark 4:10-13 And when He was alone, they who were about Him, with the Twelve, asked Him concerning the parable.  And He said to them, To you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God. But to those outside, all these things are given in parables so that seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them.  And He said to them, Do you not know this parable? And how then will you know all parables?  

Mat 13:15-17  for this people's heart has become gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and they have closed their eyes, lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them."  16 But blessed are your eyes, for they see; and your ears, for they hear. 17 For truly I say to you that many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which you see, and have not seen them; and to hear what you hear, and have not heard them.

58 Good shepherd 

 

 

John 10:1-5  Truly, truly, I say to you, He who does not enter into the sheepfold by the door, but going up by another way, that one is a thief and a robber. 2  But he who enters in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. 3  The doorkeeper opens to him, and the sheep hear his voice, and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. 4  And when he puts forth his own sheep, he goes before them, and the sheep follow him. For they know his voice. 5  And they will not follow a stranger, but will flee from him, for they do not know the voice of strangers.

 

John 10:6  Jesus spoke this parable to them, but they did not understand what it was which He spoke to them. 

 

John 10:7-18  Then Jesus said to them again, Truly, truly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. 8  All who came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them. 9  I am the door. If anyone enters in by Me, he shall be saved and shall go in and out and find pasture. 10  The thief does not come except to steal and to kill and to destroy. I have come so that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. 11  I am the Good Shepherd. The Good Shepherd lays down His life for the sheep. 12  But he who is a hireling and not the shepherd, who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and runs away. And the wolf catches them and scatters the sheep. 13  The hireling flees, because he is a hireling and does not care for the sheep. 14  I am the Good Shepherd, and I know those that are Mine, and I am known by those who are Mine. 15  Even as the Father knows Me, I also know the Father. And I lay down My life for the sheep. 16  And I have other sheep who are not of this fold. I must also lead those, and they shall hear My voice, and there shall be one flock, one Shepherd. 17  Therefore My Father loves Me, because I lay down My life so that I might take it again. 18  No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down from Myself. I have authority to lay it down, and I have authority to take it again. I have received this commandment from My Father.
