John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

John 10:5

They will not follow a stranger — One whom Christ hath not sent, who doth not answer the preceding description. Him they will not follow — And who can constrain them to it? But will flee from him — As from the plague. For they know not the voice of strangers — They cannot relish it; it is harsh and grating to them. They find nothing of God therein.
