The thief comes to steal and to kill, and to destroy. I Am come so that they might have Life, and so that they might have it more abundantly. I Am the Good Shepherd. The Good Shepherd gives His Life for the Sheep. But he that is a hireling, and not the Shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, sees the wolf coming, and leaves the Sheep, and flees. And the wolf catches them, and scatters the sheep. For the hireling flees, because he is a hireling, and does not care for the Sheep. I Am the Good Shepherd, and know My Sheep, and Am known by My own. As the Father knows Me even so know I the Father; and I lay down My Life for the Sheep. And other Sheep I have that are not of this Fold; them also I must bring, and they will hear My Voice; and there will be one Flock and one Shepherd.
