Ned Brown 11-07-2021 // A Tale of Two Sheepfolds; John 9:39-10:31
In John 9, when Jesus healed the man born blind, the response from the Jewish leaders was rejection and division. It is in this setting that the Lord taught those gathered around Him that He is the Good Shepherd. But instead of recognizing Him as the Good Shepherd, they again rejected His teaching, asserting He had a demon.
In today's teaching, we consider this teaching regarding the Good Shepherd. Of great importance is the statement from our Lord, "My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me." (John 10:27 NKJV). The question for us is, do we know the voice of our Shepherd? How can we learn to distinguish His voice? And what does it mean for us when He says, "I lay down My life for the sheep."?
Thank you for listening to today's lesson. May you be blessed through the teaching of God's Word.
