Jesus likened himself to the door of a figurative sheep pen, Jesus being the right kind of shepherd who leads his "little flock" into a relationship with God on the basis of the new covenant sealed with Jesus' own blood. (Luke 12:32; John 10:7-11) Jesus' likening himself to such a door harmonizes with the fact that through him, by virtue of his ransom sacrifice, sheeplike persons can approach God, be saved, and gain life.-John 14:6.
