Jesus claims to be the good shepherd, the messiah and the Son of God; He likens entering the kingdom of heaven to going through a narrow door (or gate) and accepting an invitation to a banquet; then He grieves over Jerusalem and heals on the Sabbath again: John 10:1–42; Luke 13:22–14:24

Was Jesus really the Messiah? The people just wanted a plain answer to a plain question. Jesus’ answer?

John 10:25-30I have already told you, and you don’t believe me. The proof is the work I do in my Father’s name. … [vs 30] The Father and I are one.

The last part was too much for them, so they tried to stone Him, or arrest Him, for blasphemy.
