HILARIOUS JOKES AND HUMOR ARCHIVES
A children's church minister was talking to his audience
about the 23rd Psalm. He told the children about sheep, that
they weren't smart and needed lots of guidance, and that a
shepherd's job was to stay close to the sheep, protect them
from wild animals and keep them from wandering off and doing
dumb things that would get them hurt or killed.
He pointed to the little children in the room and said that
they were the sheep and needed lots of guidance.
Then the minister put his hands out to the side, palms up in
a dramatic gesture, and with raised eyebrows said to the
children, "If you are the sheep then who is the shepherd?"
He was pretty obviously indicating himself.
A silence of a few seconds followed. Then a young visitor
said, "Jesus: Jesus is the shepherd."
The young minister, obviously caught by surprise, said to
the young visitor, "Well then, who am I?"
The visitor frowned thoughtfully and then said with a shrug,
"I guess you must be a sheep dog."
Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto
you, I am the door of the sheep. All that ever came before
me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.
I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved,
and shall go in and out, and find pasture. The thief cometh
not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am

I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life
for the sheep. But he that is an hireling, and not the
shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming,
and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth
them, and scattereth the sheep.
The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth
not for the sheep. I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep,
and am known of mine.
As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I
lay down my life for the sheep. And other sheep I have,
which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they
shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one
Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life,
that I might take it again. No man taketh it from me, but I
lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I
have power to take it again. This commandment have I
received of my Father. -John 10:7Previous Joke | Back to the Archives | Next Joke
