Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

John 10:9

_ _ by me if any man enter in — whether shepherd or sheep.

_ _ shall be saved — the great object of the pastoral office, as of all the divine arrangements towards mankind.

_ _ and shall go in and out and find pasturein, as to a place of safety and repose; out, as to “green pastures and still waters” (Psalms 23:2) for nourishment and refreshing, and all this only transferred to another clime, and enjoyed in another manner, at the close of this earthly scene (Revelation 7:17).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on John 10:1-18.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

John 10:9

If any one — As a sheep, enter in by me — Through faith, he shall be safe — From the wolf, and from those murdering shepherds. And shall go in and out — Shall continually attend on the shepherds whom I have sent; and shall find pasture — Food for his soul in all circumstances.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

John 10:9

(3) I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall (d) go in and out, and find pasture.

(3) Only Christ is the true Pastor, and those only are the true Church who acknowledge him to properly be their only Pastor: opposite to him are thieves who do not feed the sheep, but kill them: and hirelings also, who forsake the flock in time of danger, because they feed it only for their own profit and gains.

(d) That is, will live safely, as the Jews used to speak (see (Deuteronomy 26:6-10)), and yet there is a special reference to the shepherd's office.
