The Sheep Respond to the Voice of the True Shepherd
The meaning of verses in the Bible are discerned more fully when we contemplate the scenes on which they are based.
Have a look at two shepherds in action:
How clearly it is seen, after watching these shepherds, that sheep do not follow any voice – only that of the true shepherd. They will not respond to strangers.
“To him the doorkeeper opens, and the sheep hear his voice; and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. And when he brings out his own sheep, he goes before them; and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice. Yet they will by no means follow a stranger, but will flee from him, for they do not know the voice of strangers.”
– John 10:3-5
