St. John Chrysostom, archbishop of Constantinople (407).

APOSTOLE’S LETTER

Hebrews 7:26-8:2

26

For such a High Priest was fitting for us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and has become higher than the heavens;

27

who does not need daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifices, first for His own sins and then for the people’s, for this He did once for all when He offered up Himself.

28

For the law appoints as high priests men who have weakness, but the word of the oath, which came after the law, appoints the Son who has been perfected forever.

1

Now this is the main point of the things we are saying: We have such a High Priest, who is seated at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens,

2

a Minister of the sanctuary and of the true tabernacle which the Lord erected, and not man.

================================================

John 10:9-16

9

I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.

10

The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.

11

I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep.

12

But a hireling, he who is not the shepherd, one who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf catches the sheep and scatters them.

13

The hireling flees because he is a hireling and does not care about the sheep.

14

I am the good shepherd; and I know My sheep, and am known by My own.

15

As the Father knows Me, even so I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep.
