I am the gate

One day George Adam Smith, an Englishman who traveled extensively in the Middle East, came across a sheepfold and said to the shepherd, “That is where they go at night?”
“Yes,” said the shepherd, “and when they are in there, they are perfectly safe.”
“But there is no door,” said the Englishman.
“I am the door,” replied the shepherd.
Sir George looked at him and asked, “What do you mean by the door?”
“When the light has gone and it’s night,” said the shepherd, “and all the sheep are inside, I lie in that open space. No sheep ever goes out but across my body, and no wolf ever comes in unless he crosses my body. I am the door.”
