John 10:14-15

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 14 I am the good shepherd, and I know my sheep, as I am known by my sheep; [Many profess to know Jesus and be known by Him; but by the next verse, His sheep and He know each other like the Father and Jesus know each other.]

 15 Just like the Father knows me, and I know the Father — and I lay down my life for the sheep. [Jesus and the Father know each other deeply because Jesus is one with the Father; the Father is in Him and He is in the Father. For Jesus and His sheep to know each other just like the Father and He know each other, His sheep are in Jesus and He is in His sheep, they are one, in union. Crucified believers are in union with and one with Christ and the Father too, as John 17:20-23, 14:20 state. From the Word of the Lord within: "Salvation occurs when you are one with Christ and God. Do you know him or just pretend to know him; to know him is to have met him and listened to him? Seek the meeting." Union results from the meeting. ]
