A robber comes to steal sheep, but he can’t get in through the door.

Trying another opening, the robber calls the sheep. But they don’t listen to him because they know he is a stranger.

The shepherd calls to his sheep to lead them out through the door to green pastures.

The sheep follow the shepherd because they know his voice.

What It Means

The Savior said the shepherd represents Him. The sheep represent His followers, and the robber represents the people who preach against Him.
