John Chapter 10

A Commentary by Rav Sha’ul


Verses 1-6: The Good Shepherd and his Sheep who enter through The Narrow Gate of Passover

Verses 7-11: The children of The Dragon are blinded to True Reality found in The Heavenly Scroll

Verses 12-16: Yahuah gave Yahusha the Authority to Offer his Life in Obedience to His Will written in The Heavenly Scroll

Verses 17-21: The Father Loves the One who fulfills The Heavenly Scroll Isaiah 48:14

Verses 22-30: Yahusha entered into covenant with Yahuah to fulfill The Plan of Salvation written in The Heavenly Scroll and is “One Family Father/Son through covenant”

Verses 31-42: Yahusha denies Incarnation and rebukes the Pharisees false witness of Blasphemy for claiming to be “god”.



Yahusha points to The Way through The Narrow Gate of Passover as the Good Shepherd/VIRGO and fulfillment of The Plan of Salvation written in The Heavenly Scroll:


VIRGO/John 10:2: A young maiden will give a virgin birth to a beautiful Glorious and Righteous Branch (who will be the Firstborn Son, open her womb, and be heir to High Priest and King of Israel). The seed (star Spica) of the woman will be a man of humiliation (Suffering Servant) to rise to be the Desire of Nations (King of Kings) and will become exalted first as shepherd (High Priest) then as harvester (Conquering King).


He fulfills LIBRA by giving his life to pay the dowry for the Sheep/Bride:


LIBRA/John 10:11: The scales demand a price to be paid of this seed, a cross to endure; the victim will be slain (as the Lamb/ARIES dies to pay the dowry and redeem his Bride) and purchase a crown (earn the right to rule by willingly dying for the ones he will rule over and demonstrating the Greatest Love of all).


As the Good Shepherd/VIRGO calls his Sheep from among the Nations, they hear his voice and he leads the Sheep/Bride through The Narrow Gate into The Kingdom/CANCER over the Messianic Age of PISCES:


PISCES/John 10:3: The Redeemer's people multiplied, supported and led by the Lamb, The Bride is exposed on Earth, the Bridegroom is exalted.

CANCER/John 10:3: The Great Bride, the two Houses of Yahudah/Judah and Israel are united (by the one who brings peace between the two Houses, The Prince of Peace Isaiah 9:6), they are united and brought safely into The Kingdom (the re-unification of the two Houses of Israel into Remnant Israel).


The Good Shepherd gives his life for his Sheep and grants them eternal life in covenant as his Bride.


AQUARIUS/John 10:9,10: He pours out “Living Water from on High, humanity drinks of the Heavenly River and the faithful live again


He gives his life at the end of the Age of ARIES/the Lamb as the Age ends (the Lamb dies) and he is found Worthy by the Gatekeeper Yahuah Who opens The Narrow Gate for all those who follow Yahusha’s example of Mikveh, Circumcision, and Offering on Passover.


ARIES/John 10:3: The Lamb (gives his life at the end of the Age of ARIES/Lamb dies) is found Worthy, the Bride is made ready/Righteous (by walking The Way), Satan is bound, the strong man (Psalm 19) triumphs.



This Plan of Salvation was laid out as a physical example for us to study in the first Exodus as Mosheh/Moses (the Good Shepherd) led his sheep (Israel) out of bondage (Age of TAURUS) on Passover (The Narrow Gate), through the wilderness (Age of PISCES) and into the Promised Land (Age of AQUARIUS).  Yahusha is portrayed in the stars as crucified in the 4th Prophetic Day when the Age of ARIES/the Lamb ends (dies). This is how Daniel knew the exact timing of The Messiah’s arrival! Daniel was shown The Heavenly Scroll. 







Yahusha taught Passover as The Narrow Gate fulfilling the original Exodus shadow


Matthew 7:13,14
13 Enter (into The Kingdom) through The Narrow Gate (of Passover). For wide is the gate (the Way of the Gentiles Ishtar/Easter) and broad is the road (of Incarnated demi-gods) that leads to destruction (blasphemy against the Spirit of Yahuah), and many (filled with The Spirit of the False Messiah/Incarnation) enter through it. 14 But small is the gate (in covenant with a Mediator) and narrow the road that leads to Life (John 17:3 – ‘this is eternal life, that they know You, the only True God’), and only a few find it.

Yahusha calls us all “Lambs of Yahuah” fulfilling the Original shadow (Letter) found in The Spiritual Law, as we all are to bring our own Lambs to the Altar on Passover.


Exodus 12:1-6 - the Passover and the Festival of Unleavened Bread
1 Yahuah said to Mosheh/Moses and Aharon/Aaron in Egypt, 2 This month is to be for you the first month, the first month of your year. 3 Tell the whole community of Israel that on the tenth day of this month each man is to take a lamb for his family, one for each household. 5 The animals you choose must be year-old males without defect, and you may take them from the sheep or the goats. 6 Take care of them until the fourteenth day of the month, when all the members of the community of Israel must slaughter them (there were many Passover Lambs) at twilight.

The Nazarenes understood that we are all Passover Lambs and we are to follow the Good Shepherd’s example on Passover and walk The Way of Mikveh, Circumcision, and Offering just like he did when he gave his life as THE Passover Lamb as a Light/example to the Nations.


Romans 12:1
Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of Yahuah’s Mercy (Who accepted His Firstborn Son Yahusha as a Sacrifice on Passover, which tore the Veil open to the Mercy Seat), to offer your (own) bodies (not just Yahusha, we too must follow in his footsteps) as a Living Sacrifice (Living Sacrificial Lamb on the Altar of Yahuah each Passover, as commanded), Holy (prepared through Mikveh) and pleasing to Yahuah (Lambs without spot or blemish 2 Kephah/2 Peter 3:14)—this is your True and Proper Worship (on Passover Exodus 12:3).


2 Kephah/2 Peter 3:14,15
14 Therefore, beloved, looking forward to these things (the Appointed Times of Yahuah specifically Passover), be diligent to be found (faithful to the Spiritual Truth of Passover) by Him in peace, without spot and blameless (referring to our bodies as Living Sacrificial Lambs removing the leaven and giving your lives as Living Sacrificial Lambs Romans 12:1); 15 and consider that the longsuffering (on Passover) of our King (to pay the dowry for his Bride and fulfill The Heavenly Scroll) is Salvation (he, ORION, pours out Living Water and the faithful live again)


Ezekiel 36:25-27Mikveh, Circumcision, Offering

25 Then I will sprinkle clean water on you (MIKVEH), and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols. 26 Moreover, I will give you a new (CIRCUMCISION) heart and put a New (Loving) Spirit within you; and I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. 27 I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My Statutes, and you will be careful to observe My Ordinances (to bring your own Passover Lamb, (OFFERING), to the Altar Exodus 12:1-3)




The Good Shepherd showed us The Way of Mikveh, Circumcision,
and Offering
on Passover


1 John  2:6
whoever says he abides in (covenant with) him (Yahusha) ought to walk in the same way in which he walked (follow Yahusha’s example).


John 13:15
For I have given you an example (Spiritual path), that you should do as I have done (offer our own lives as Living Sacrificial Lambs on Passover).


8 See to it that no one (Greek Christian) takes you captive through philosophy (pagan ‘LOGOS’ for example) and empty deception (sound bite implied doctrine), according to the (pagan) tradition of men, according to the elementary principles (false spirits i.e. The Spirit of Error) of the world, rather than according to The Yahushaic Covenant. 9 For in (covenant with) Yahusha all the Fullness of Deity dwells in bodily form (we are reborn Spiritually and filled with His Spirit in our bodies Ephesians 3:19), 10 and in The Yahushaic Covenant you have been made complete (in Fullness of Deity), and Yahusha is the head over all rule and authority (as the Firstborn Son of Yahuah through inheritance);




11 and in The Yahushaic Covenant you were also Circumcised (in your heart) with a Circumcision made without hands (Sha’ul/Paul is teaching the transposition of The Law into the Spirit), in the removal of the body of the flesh (carnal mindset) by the Circumcision of the same Spirit of Holiness (Righteous keeping of The Law) that is in The Messiah;




12 having been buried with Yahusha in Mikveh, in which you were also raised up (in covenant) with Yahusha through faith in the working of Yahuah, Who raised Yahusha from the dead (Sha’ul/Paul is saying we have been given the Spirit of Holiness which is the Power of Yahuah that raised Yahusha).




13 When you were dead in your transgressions and the uncircumcision of your flesh (carnal mindset), Yahuah made you alive together with Yahusha, (and Yahuah through Mikveh) having forgiven us all our transgressions (by the Blood of the Passover Lamb), 14 (Yahuah) having canceled out the ‘certificate of debt’ consisting of (His judicial) Decrees against us (Death Decrees found in The Law), which was hostile to us (because we transgressed His Commands and Ordinances); and Yahuah has taken the Death Decrees in The Law out of the way, having nailed those Death Decrees to the stake (with Yahusha and forgiven our sin). 15 When Yahusha had disarmed the rulers and authorities (by dying innocent by walking The Way), Yahusha made a public display of them (defeating The Law of Sin and Death through Resurrection), having triumphed over them through (the Power of) Yahuah (Who raised Yahusha from the grave).

Sha’ul is explaining that the physical rehearsal of sacrificing your own Passover Lamb each year was nothing more than a teaching tool to help us understand our role in The Yahushaic Covenant and remind us of the timing The Messiah would come at the end of The Age of ARIES the Lamb (the Age dies):


Hebrews 10:1-10
1 The Law is only a shadow (
physical example/rehearsal) of the Good Things that are Coming (The Spiritual Kingdom of Yahuah)—not the (Spiritual) realities themselves. For this reason, it (the physical examples/rehearsals in The Law) can never, by the same (physical) sacrifices (of a lamb) repeated endlessly year after year, make perfect those who draw near to worship (perfection is found in personal sacrifice, and the Spiritual attitude of the heart not outward physical rituals). Otherwise, would they (physical sacrifices) not have stopped being offered? For the worshippers would have been cleansed once for all and would no longer have felt guilty for their sins. But those sacrifices are an annual reminder of when our sins will be forgiven. It is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins (forgiveness of sin comes from repentance of heart i.e. is Spiritually offered not physically. Reverent submission as Yahusha demonstrated in The Garden of Gethsemane). Therefore, when The Messiah came into the world (to fulfill Passover), Yahusha said: Sacrifice and Offering You did not desire, but a (sinful) body You prepared for me; with (physical) burnt offerings and sin offerings you were not pleased. Then I said, ‘here I am (offering my sinful body broken as a Living Sacrifice to deny my sinful will and reverently submit to Your Will)—it is written about me in The Heavenly Scroll (as a Lamb that was slaughtered before the foundation of the world Revelation 13:8) —  I have come (to deny my selfish sinful flesh and) to do Your Will (written in The Heavenly Scroll Hebrews 10:7, Matthew 6:10), My God (Yahusha is NOT Yahuah, Yahuah is the God of Yahusha just like Yahuah is our God and Father John 20:17).’” First He said, Sacrifices and Offerings; burnt offerings and sin offerings You did not desire, nor were You pleased with them—though they were offered in accordance with The Law (Yahuah’s rehearsals became a burdensome ritual Miykahyahu/Micah 6). Then he said, Here I am, I have come to do Your Will (on Earth as it is written in The Heavenly Scroll. Yahusha made this clear on Passover when he prayed in the Garden Luke 22:42). (In doing so he paid the dowry for his Bride, dying to his selfish will in obedience to Yahuah’s Will) He (Yahusha) sets aside (transposes) the first (physical ritual example of sacrificing an animal) to establish the second (Spiritual Truth of reverent submission of Will giving our own bodies as Living Sacrificial Lambs Romans 12:1). 10 And by (following) that (same) Will (of our own obedient submission), we (too) have been made Holy (Set Apart) through (Mikveh and by following the example of) the (Living) Sacrifice of the body of Yahusha The Messiah (who) once for all (the Son of Yahuah tore the Veil! Yahusha tore the Veil and provided access to the Altar of Yahuah. Revealing the meaning and Spiritual Truth of Passover. We no longer go through the same ritual physical example of killing an animal year after year Hebrews 5:1 above, now we Offer ourselves as Lambs of Yahuah on Passover as we are to be Living Sacrifices and follow in the example set by Yahusha).

Sha’ul continues teaching how to keep Passover, instructing the ritual of Mikveh. Sha’ul is explaining that in the tradition of Israel, in order to become a member of the commonwealth of Israel, you had to be Circumcised, Mikveh’d and bring an Offering to burn on the Altar. Now those physical training tools have been realized in their Spiritual Truths in The Yahushaic Covenant:


Hebrews 10:22
Let us draw near to (the Altar of) Yahuah (properly presenting ourselves) with a sincere heart (True CIRCUMCISION) and with the full assurance that faith (in the example set by Yahusha) brings (… that we can offer our own lives as Living Sacrifices because Yahusha has torn the Veil in two, giving us access to the Mercy Seat of Yahuah), having our hearts sprinkled (with the Blood OFFERING) to cleanse us from a guilty conscience (the covering of the Death Decrees) and having our bodies washed with pure Living Water (MIKVEH).

In Ephesians, we again, see Sha’ul use the Spiritual Truth of Passover and the Mikveh to prepare the Bride to meet her husband for the “Appointed Time” as spotless Passover Lambs.


Ephesians 5:25-27
25 Husbands, love your wives, just as The Messiah loved the body and gave himself up for her (as the Passover Lamb) 26 to make her Holy, (ritually) cleansing her by the washing with (Living) Water (MIKVEH), through the Commandments (CIRCUMCISION of heart) 27 and to present her (properly) to himself as a radiant assembly, without spot or wrinkle or any other blemish (as spotless OFFERING on Passover), but Holy and blameless.

The proper way to keep Passover, Mikveh, Circumcision, and Offering is taught throughout both the “Old and New” covenants. It is The True Way that leads to eternal life. We have as an assembly, lost our way and now are consumed with pagan rituals.
