John 10:3 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Porter (θυρωρὸς)

From θύρα, door, and ὤρα, care. An under-shepherd, to whose charge the sheep are committed after they have been folded for the night, and who opens the door on the arrival of the shepherd in the morning.

Calleth (καλεῖ)

But the best texts read φωνεῖ, expressing personal address.
