A relationship with Christ just like the Father's

             “and I know (my own)” – ginosko – ‘to know,’ but it means to know from the experience of observation, study, and also to know from the experience of falling in love with someone.   Ginosko here is a love knowing all the facts. He...

Christ knows everything about the believer and still loves the believer.

  John 10:12 "He who is a hireling, and not a shepherd, who is not the owner of the sheep, beholds the wolf coming, and leaves the sheep, and flees, and the wolf snatches them, and scatters them.   /A hireling is a hired hand who would never have as much desire for the sheep as the...

Jesus Christ is the Great I Am; the only qualified Shepherd

Chapter 10:1-21 is the shepherd discourse which occurs the day after Christ heals the blind man.   There are two doors on this chapter. One is the door of ingress [the way in] and one is the door of egress [way out]. At the time that this was written there were a lot of customs concerning sheepfolds and these have to be understood to...

The Shepherd's door and the sheep's salvation

On his first day of sight he gets tossed out of the temple and goes rolling down the steps. What a great day! And it’s gonna get a heck of a lot better because Jesus hears about him being bounced.   John 9:35 Jesus heard that they had put him out; and finding him, He said, "Do you believe in the Son of Man?" ...

This is brought out beautifully in verses 13-34. We have the ex-blind man vs. the Pharisees.   John 9:13 They brought to the Pharisees him who was formerly blind.   John 9:14 Now it was a Sabbath on the day when Jesus made the clay, and opened his eyes.   /The...

God works in grace, but not always in the same way

John 9:1 And as He passed by, He saw a man blind from birth.   John 9:2 And His disciples asked Him, saying, "Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he should be born blind?"   John 9:3 Jesus answered, "It was neither that this man sinned, nor...
