I. According to the Gospel of John, the Triune God as life brings forth the church; although the word church is not used, many verses allude to the church—2:16-22; 3:26-30; 10:16; 11:52; 12:24; 14:2-3; 15:5; 17:11, 21-23.
II. Christ is the good Shepherd who laid down His life for the sheep so that, in the divine life, there will be one flock and one Shepherd—10:16:
III. The Lord Jesus is shepherding us in life for the Father’s house—the divine and human incorporation of the processed and consummated Triune God with His redeemed, regenerated, and transformed elect—14:2-3
