    Thus, He may be trusted completely with our lives — and our everlasting destinies. In comparison, Jesus is saying that, like a good shepherd, He is the ultimate keeper of our souls — one who even lays down His life for His sheep.

In the End Those who reject the Bible naturally balk at such a statement and cling to claims of contradictions, disbelief in miracles, and supposed textual changes over the years. Albert Mohler, Jr. As far as we know, Jesus is a carpenter and itinerant evangelist who never moonlights as a herder of wooly critters. If a preacher will preach through whole books, he will eventually get to more "obscure" books that even some studious Christians haven't spent much time in.
