  14. 19. Week 5 – The Good Shepherd <ul><li>John 10… 11 I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. 12 He who is a hired hand and not a shepherd, who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees, and the wolf snatches them and scatters them. </li></ul>
  15. 20. Week 5 – The Good Shepherd <ul><li>13 He flees because he is a hired hand and cares nothing for the sheep. 14 I am the good shepherd. I know my own and my own know me, 15 just as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for the sheep. </li></ul>
  16. 21. Week 5 – The Good Shepherd <ul><li>16 And I have other sheep that are not of this fold. I must bring them also, and they will listen to my voice. So there will be one flock, one shepherd. 17 For this reason the Father loves me, because I lay down my life that I may take it up again. </li></ul>
  17. 22. Week 5 – The Good Shepherd <ul><li>18 No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down, and I have authority to take it up again. This charge I have received from my Father.” </li></ul><ul><li>19 There was again a division among the Jews because of these words </li></ul>
  18. 23. Week 5 – The Good Shepherd <ul><li>20 Many of them said, “He has a demon, and is insane; why listen to him?” 21 Others said, “These are not the words of one who is oppressed by a demon. Can a demon open the eyes of the blind?” </li></ul>
  19. 24. Week 5 – The Good Shepherd <ul><li>Luke 15 :1 Now the tax collectors and sinners were all drawing near to hear him. 2 And the Pharisees and the scribes grumbled, saying, “This man receives sinners and eats with them.” </li></ul><ul><li>3 So he told them this parable: </li></ul>
  20. 25. Week 5 – The Good Shepherd <ul><li>4 “What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he has lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the open country, and go after the one that is lost, until he finds it? 5 And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing. </li></ul>
  21. 26. Week 5 – The Good Shepherd <ul><li>6 And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and his neighbors, saying to them, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep that was lost.’ </li></ul>
  22. 27. Week 5 – The Good Shepherd <ul><li>7 Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance. </li></ul>
