Bible Story Video

Bible Story Point

In today's story, Jesus was using an illustration called a metaphor. It's a picture made of words to help us understand something in a new and different way. Jesus wasn't talking about real sheep. He was talking about His followers. All His followers are like sheep who are taken care of by a Good Shepherd, which is Jesus.

The wolves are those who want to hurt God's people, the sheep. Jesus laid down His life to protect His sheep from sin and death and makes sure that they know and understand the trust. Jesus is the Good Shepherd who cares for His people.

In Matthew 18:12-14, Jesus tells a story of a shepherd that leave 99 of his sheep to find one that wandered away. Jesus is a good shepherd who cares about each one of His sheep.

Jesus is the Good Shepherd who cares for His people.

Christ Connection

Jesus is the Good Shepherd! God sent Him to rescue sinners. Jesus laid down His life for His sheep so they could have forgiveness and eternal life. When we trust in Jesus, we are His sheep who listen to, follow, and obey Him.

A good shepherd would do anything to protect his sheep form thieves or wolves. Jesus knew that we all are sinners, and all deserve eternal death and separation from God. So, He died in our place so that we could have eternal life with God.

Everyone who trust in Jesus' perfect life and sacrificial death are forgiven of sin and can be with God forever. He lived the perfect life we were supposed to live, died the death we deserved to die, and rose again showing His power over sin and death!


Let's review some of the details we have learned in our story to see how much we can remember.

1. Who did Jesus say was the gate for the sheep to come in? (John 10:7)

2.Who can snatch Jesus' sheep from the Father's hand? (John 10:29)

3. Who did Jesus say He is?

4.What are God's people like?

5. What happens when sheep hear the shepherd's voice?

6. What does this story teach me about God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, or the gospel?

7. What does this story teach me about myself?

8. Are there any commands in this story to obey? How are they for God's glory and my good?

9. Are there any promises in this story to remember? How do they help me trust and love God?

10. How does this story help me live on mission better?

Memory Verse: John 14:25-26

Take a few minutes to memorize John 14:25-26 as a family.

Living a life that points people to Jesus can be hard. Jesus even teaches that it could cost us everything we have. But this passage teaches us that the Holy Spirit will help us live for Jesus.
