Any shepherd may lose His life for the sheep, but that is not what Jesus said. He said the good shepherd lays down his life for his sheep.
Did you know that there has only been one person who ever chose to die? Only one. You say, “But suicide pilots choose to die. Other people choose to die. People who die by their own hand choose to die. People who give themselves for others choose to die.” No one has ever chosen to die but Jesus. Because He was the only one who didn’t have to die. All the rest of us are going to die sooner or later. Some people may just choose to die a little sooner, but nobody has chosen to die except One. That was Jesus, who laid down His life for the sheep.
