    John 10:15-18 what is the explanation for  "And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold:...."

    Jesus is speaking to his Jewish flock in this passage, the first of those to hear his message. The "other sheep" are his Gentile flock who are not of the Jewish fold. Gentiles had not received the message yet but would in the future. Therefore, Jesus is stating that he would lay down his life for all men not just Israel.

    This is a great question. Mostly, it seems to refer to the Gentiles, meaning all other peoples outside of Israel. Jesus' primary ministry was to the Jews. He was the fulfillment of their prophecies. Yet, the good news of Jesus as Savior was not merely for the Jews. The Old Testament scriptures make it clear that the Messiah was for all the nations of the world. Mormons believe it refers specifically to the people's in the Western Hemisphere. However, these people groups could be included in the wider term "Gentiles."

    The LDS believe that there were people in the Western Hemisphere who had been directed to leave Jerusalem before its fall; people who were themselves Jews.  That, if true, (and some people are adamant in claiming that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is just a fantastic hoax) then it would fit with Christ's first coming to teach the Jews the same laws and lessons he had taught in the Holy Land (which would also explain why some portions of the Book of Mormon are recognized as being word-for-word commandments from teachings recorded in the New Testament.)  Be that as it may, or may not, I tend to agree with your conclusion, though it still took a later revelation to Peter that Gentiles were now to receive what the Jews had already been offered.

    "And the other sheep" refers to those who have not yet accepted Jesus as Lord and Redeemer.

    I think this passage refers to those who are under God's conviction, but who have not taken the pledge of Jesus as their Saviour.

    In fisherman's is the fish, still on the line.
