10 “Very truly I tell you Pharisees, anyone who does not enter the sheep pen by the gate, but climbs in by some other way, is a thief and a robber. 2 The one who enters by the gate is the shepherd of the sheep. 3 The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. 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. 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.” 6 Jesus used this figure of speech, but the Pharisees did not understand what he was telling them.

When Jesus talks about the one who does not use the door to enter the sheepfold, what kind of person is Jesus describing? 

Why is it important for the sheep to know the voice of the shepherd? What can happen when the sheep do not recognize the voice of the shepherd? 

There is an old saying where someone refers to a person or group of people as sheepish or sheep-like, just following each other over the cliff. Does that somehow have a connection here?

Listen as we discuss these questions and more in this week's PODCAST.
