Two Responses to Jesus

These verses contrast the response of the Jewish leaders to Jesus with the response of Jesus’ sheep. The end result of these two responses are “perishing” and “eternal life” respectively. We are called to examine our lives in the light of the characteristics of his sheep that Jesus gives here. “My sheep listen to my voice; …and they follow me.” The gospel in this passage is in the fact that Jesus knows his sheep.
