The IVP New Testament Commentary Series – Jesus Is the Good Shepherd Who Is Gathering His Flock (10:1-21)
Jesus Is the Good Shepherd Who Is Gathering His Flock (10:1-21)

Jesus now puts the events of chapter 9 into perspective by contrasting himself, the Good Shepherd, with the Pharisees, whom he identifies with the evil shepherds of Ezekiel 34. "The `Pharisees' have expelled from God's flock the man whom Christ Himself enlightened. They are scattering the sheep whom Christ came to gather" (Dodd 1953:359). In this way, Jesus' estrangement from official Judaism is further developed as he calls into being a people who follow him rather than the leaders of Israel.
