Jesus told a parable against the Pharisees. He said that they were like hired shepherds.
A hired shepherd cares about his wages, but he does not care so much for the sheep. The Pharisees did not care for God’s people, and they would not believe in Jesus. Jesus said, “I am the Good Shepherd. I will give My life to save My sheep.” Jesus also told them that He is like the door of the sheepfold. You can see this in the picture. The sheep are safe while the shepherd guards the doorway. Jesus protects His people so that the evil one cannot come and destroy them. John 10:1-21 globalrecordings.net
