John 10: 1-18
Who is Jesus?
Jesus is the Good Shepherd
What is He asking of us?
We must be obedient to Him
- The two contexts of poor shepherds
- Jewish religious officials present failure (John 9:41)
- Old Testament failure (Ezekiel 34:1-6)
- Jesus the Good shepherd leads with sacrifice and the cross
- False shepherds
- Thieves and Robbers
- Hired hands
- Jesus’s strong authority and the Gospel
 Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good.  Love one another
with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor.  Do not be slothful in
zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord.  Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be
constant in prayer.  Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality.
 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse them.  Rejoice with those
who rejoice, weep with those who weep.  Live in harmony with one another. Do not be
haughty, but associate with the lowly. Never be wise in your own sight.  Repay no one
evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all.  If possible, so
far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all.
