He calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out (John 10:3)

In the East it is usual for sheepfolds to be palisaded or walled, and at nightfall several shepherds bring their flocks to the one fold for safety. There, a watchman—the porter mentioned in the same verse—will remain with them all night. In the morning each shepherd comes and calls to his sheep by name. They at once gather around him and are led to their pasture. Even in Western lands, good shepherds who have small flocks often know each sheep as an individual.
