The Good Shepherd and His Sheep (John 20:19-31)
Watch the story (John 10) together:
Sheep are led and taken care of by a person called a shepherd. That shepherd takes care of sick sheep and helps keep them clean. Shepherds lead sheep to water and tell them when it is time to rest. Shepherds help sheep find shelter. Jesus said, “My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish”
