CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
The good shepherd - The faithful and true shepherd, willing to do all that is necessary to defend and save the flock.
Giveth his life - A shepherd that regarded his flock would hazard his own life to defend them. When the wolf comes, he would still remain to protect them. To give his life, here, means the same as not to fly, or to forsake his flock; to be willing to expose his life, if necessary, to defend them. Compare Judges 12:3; "I put my life in my hands and passed over," etc.; 1 Samuel 19:5; 1 Samuel 28:21. See John 10:15. The Messiah was often predicted under the character of a shepherd.

For thus says the Lord GOD, "Behold, I Myself will search for My sheep and seek them out.
"Then I will set over them one shepherd, My servant David, and he will feed them; he will feed them himself and be their shepherd.
