One Flock, One Shepherd

“I have come that they may have zoe life and may have it abundantly. I am the good Shepherd; the good Shepherd lays down His psuche life for the sheep.

“He laid down His psuche life on our behalf, and we ought to lay down our psuche lives on behalf of the brothers.” 1 John 3:16
