John opens this dialogue chapter with the teaching of Jesus as Shepard. Note 3 times Jesus says….
Joh 10:24 Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto him, How long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the Christ, tell us plainly.
Joh 10:25 Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father’s name, they bear witness of me.
Joh 10:26 But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.
Joh 10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
Joh 10:28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any manpluck them out of my hand.
Joh 10:29 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluckthem out of my Father’s hand.
Joh 10:30 I and my Father are one.
Obviously they heard what he told then, since they had the appropriate reaction.
Joh 10:31 Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him.
Blasphemy laws are not just a contemporary religious concept.
We saw this before…
Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him. As they had done before; see Gill on Joh 8:59.
Joh 8:58 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.
Joh 8:59 Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.
