The Muslims are the Other Sheepfold of Christ

The Muslims are the other sheepfold God said were unlike the Christians:
“There are other sheep which belong to me that are not in this sheepfold” (John 10:16)

Other sheepfold: the Muslims
This sheepfold: the sheepfold of the Christians

Jesus referred to the Christians as ‘this sheepfold’ because he was with the Christians. While he was the shepherd of the Christians, he was looking forward to bringing the Muslims to Mount Zion like he already brought the Christians.
“There are other sheep which belong to me that are not in this sheepfold. I must bring them, too” (John 10:16)

I must bring them, too: Christ was determined to bring the Muslims to Zion like he brought the Christians to Zion.

He knew the Muslims would listen to him because he is the Good Shepherd, who is willing to risk his life for his sheep.
“I am the good shepherd, who is willing to die for the sheep.” (John 10:11)

As the good shepherd, Christ reconciled the Muslims with the Christians and made them one flock with one shepherd.
“They will listen to my voice, and they will become one flock with one shepherd” (John 10:16)

They will listen to my voice: the Muslims will be able to recognize the voice of God when Jesus speaks
And they will become one flock: and the Muslims and the Christians will become one flock
With one shepherd: Joshua (Jesus) will be the shepherd of both the Christians and the Muslims

Jesus traveled back to Genesis to speak to the Muslims, and he brought them from Genesis to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

The Muslims are unlike the Christians in many ways; but in spite of their differences, Jesus is the one shepherd of the two religions.


Jesus is the worthy shepherd. The worthy shepherd could see that Dome of the Chain is made up of two sides, which are the two eyes of God. Two eyes here imply two groups of witnesses. The first eye is the Christian group of witnesses and the other eye is the Muslim group of witnesses. Both Muslims and Christians are witnesses for God on earth, and therefore are the two eyes of God.
