“I Have Other Sheep”

Brant Gardner

Jesus notes the existence of still “other sheep.” The Nephites must have experienced this information as reassurance that they are not forgotten and, in this case, not unique.

Text: This verse is artificially separated from its context. There was no chapter break in the 1830 edition at this point, and this section should have directly followed the passage describing the Nephites as “other sheep.”
