You missed it.
Christ was talking about those of Israel there in the land of the Jews that were already His in their belief in the Law and the Prophets and...of those of Israel that were scatterred but that also were His in their belief in the Law and the Prophets (other sheep not of this fold).
The Gentiles were then without hope and without God in the world...duh..uh.
You missed it...as usual.
Here's my problem. Is this not two different groups brought into one under one shepherd? Those under a shepherd are sheep.
Eph. 2:13 But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.
14 For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;
15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;
16 And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:
17 And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh.
18 For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.
19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;
