John 10

NLT 1 "I assure you, anyone who sneaks over the wall of a sheepfold, rather than going through the gate, must surely be a thief and a robber! NIV 1 "I tell you the truth, the man who does not enter the sheep pen by the gate, but climbs in by some other way, is a thief and a robber. NLT 2 For a shepherd enters through the gate. NIV 2 The man who enters by the gate is the shepherd of his sheep. NLT 3 The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep hear his voice and come to him. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. NIV 3 The watchman opens the gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. NLT 4 After he has gathered his own flock, he walks ahead of them, and they follow him because they recognize his voice. NIV 4 When he has brought out all his own, he goes on ahead of them, and his sheep follow him because they know his voice. NLT 5 They won't follow a stranger; they will run from him because they don't recognize his voice." NIV 5 But they will never follow a stranger; in fact, they will run away from him because they do not recognize a stranger's voice." NLT 6 Those who heard Jesus use this illustration didn't understand what he meant, NIV 6 Jesus used this figure of speech, but they did not understand what he was telling them. NLT 7 so he explained it to them. "I assure you, I am the gate for the sheep," he said. NIV 7 Therefore Jesus said again, "I tell you the truth, I am the gate for the sheep. NLT 8 "All others who came before me were thieves and robbers. But the true sheep did not listen to them. NIV 8 All who ever came before me were thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not listen to them. NLT 9 Yes, I am the gate. Those who come in through me will be saved. Wherever they go, they will find green pastures. NIV 9 I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. He will come in and go out, and find pasture. NLT 10 The thief's purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give life in all its fullness." NIV 10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. NLT 11 "I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. NIV 11 "I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. NLT 12 A hired hand will run when he sees a wolf coming. He will leave the sheep because they aren't his and he isn't their shepherd. And so the wolf attacks them and scatters the flock. NIV 12 The hired hand is not the shepherd who owns the sheep. So when he sees the wolf coming, he abandons the sheep and runs away. Then the wolf attacks the flock and scatters it. NLT 13 The hired hand runs away because he is merely hired and has no real concern for the sheep." NIV 13 The man runs away because he is a hired hand and cares nothing for the sheep. NLT 14 "I am the good shepherd; I know my own sheep, and they know me, NIV 14 "I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me-- NLT 15 just as my Father knows me and I know the Father. And I lay down my life for the sheep. NIV 15 just as the Father knows me and I know the Father--and I lay down my life for the sheep. NLT 16 I have other sheep, too, that are not in this sheepfold. I must bring them also, and they will listen to my voice; and there will be one flock with one shepherd." NIV 16 I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd. NLT 17 "The Father loves me because I lay down my life that I may have it back again. NIV 17 The reason my Father loves me is that I lay down my life--only to take it up again. NLT 18 No one can take my life from me. I lay down my life voluntarily. For I have the right to lay it down when I want to and also the power to take it again. For my Father has given me this command." NIV 18 No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. This command I received from my Father." NLT 19 When he said these things, the people were again divided in their opinions about him. NIV 19 At these words the Jews were again divided. NLT 20 Some of them said, "He has a demon, or he's crazy. Why listen to a man like that?" NIV 20 Many of them said, "He is demon-possessed and raving mad. Why listen to him?" NLT 21 Others said, "This doesn't sound like a man possessed by a demon! Can a demon open the eyes of the blind?" NIV 21 But others said, "These are not the sayings of a man possessed by a demon. Can a demon open the eyes of the blind?" NLT 22 It was now winter, and Jesus was in Jerusalem at the time of Hanukkah. NIV 22 Then came the Feast of Dedication at Jerusalem. It was winter, NLT 23 He was at the Temple, walking through the section known as Solomon's Colonnade. NIV 23 and Jesus was in the temple area walking in Solomon's Colonnade. NLT 24 The Jewish leaders surrounded him and asked, "How long are you going to keep us in suspense? If you are the Messiah, tell us plainly." NIV 24 The Jews gathered around him, saying, "How long will you keep us in suspense? If you are the Christ, tell us plainly." NLT 25 Jesus replied, "I have already told you, and you don't believe me. The proof is what I do in the name of my Father. NIV 25 Jesus answered, "I did tell you, but you do not believe. The miracles I do in my Father's name speak for me, NLT 26 But you don't believe me because you are not part of my flock. NIV 26 but you do not believe because you are not my sheep. NLT 27 My sheep recognize my voice; I know them, and they follow me. NIV 27 My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. NLT 28 I give them eternal life, and they will never perish. No one will snatch them away from me, NIV 28 I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand. NLT 29 for my Father has given them to me, and he is more powerful than anyone else. So no one can take them from me. NIV 29 My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father's hand. NLT 30 The Father and I are one." NIV 30 I and the Father are one." NLT 31 Once again the Jewish leaders picked up stones to kill him. NIV 31 Again the Jews picked up stones to stone him, NLT 32 Jesus said, "At my Father's direction I have done many things to help the people. For which one of these good deeds are you killing me?" NIV 32 but Jesus said to them, "I have shown you many great miracles from the Father. For which of these do you stone me?" NLT 33 They replied, "Not for any good work, but for blasphemy, because you, a mere man, have made yourself God." NIV 33 "We are not stoning you for any of these," replied the Jews, "but for blasphemy, because you, a mere man, claim to be God." NLT 34 Jesus replied, "It is written in your own law that God said to certain leaders of the people, 'I say, you are gods!' NIV 34 Jesus answered them, "Is it not written in your Law, 'I have said you are gods' ? NLT 35 And you know that the Scriptures cannot be altered. So if those people, who received God's message, were called 'gods,' NIV 35 If he called them 'gods,' to whom the word of God came--and the Scripture cannot be broken-- NLT 36 why do you call it blasphemy when the Holy One who was sent into the world by the Father says, 'I am the Son of God'? NIV 36 what about the one whom the Father set apart as his very own and sent into the world? Why then do you accuse me of blasphemy because I said, 'I am God's Son'? NLT 37 Don't believe me unless I carry out my Father's work. NIV 37 Do not believe me unless I do what my Father does. NLT 38 But if I do his work, believe in what I have done, even if you don't believe me. Then you will realize that the Father is in me, and I am in the Father." NIV 38 But if I do it, even though you do not believe me, believe the miracles, that you may know and understand that the Father is in me, and I in the Father." NLT 39 Once again they tried to arrest him, but he got away and left them. NIV 39 Again they tried to seize him, but he escaped their grasp. NLT 40 He went beyond the Jordan River to stay near the place where John was first baptizing. NIV 40 Then Jesus went back across the Jordan to the place where John had been baptizing in the early days. Here he stayed NLT 41 And many followed him. "John didn't do miracles," they remarked to one another, "but all his predictions about this man have come true." NIV 41 and many people came to him. They said, "Though John never performed a miraculous sign, all that John said about this man was true." NLT 42 And many believed in him there. NIV 42 And in that place many believed in Jesus.
