"Jesus Is No Hired Hand!" (1 John 3:16-24, John 10:11-18)

Rev. Dr. Marjorie E. NunesRev. Dr. Marjorie E. Nunes, April 22, 2018
Part of the Sunday series, preached at a Sunday service

In this scripture: A contrast/comparison is being drawn between two individuals: “The good shepherd and the hired hand.” They represent two completely different kinds of leadership, because that is what this passage, and the previous one in verses 1-10, is all about. The community is being portrayed as a sheepfold and its leaders are described, positively or negatively, as shepherds, thieves, bandits, gatekeepers, strangers, gates, and hired hands. Therefore, Jesus clearly declares, “I Am the Good Shepherd.”
