Notice that John testified that there was a division again among the Jews because of these sayings. And many of them said that the Word had within Him a devil, and that He had gone mad; why should anyone hear him? In order for the GOOD SHEPHERD to lead HIS sheep, HE sent HIS Lamb to lead the sheep to follow HIM.
The Word is the Door by which the Father reveals in man HIS will. He is also the Father's Lamb that was put forth among the sheep that HE might lead them unto HIMSELF by HIS Lamb. To the sheep, the Word as the Door, the Porter and the Father's Sheep, is the One, Who reveals the understanding of the GOOD SHEPHERD that they might know the Father's will.
