I think this question is wrong . Why because one JCL have only one job will be exec so I think this question should be... How to exec a particular step or pgm in JCL?
One job have maximal 255 steps.So exec a particular step or pgm per pus used restart command or cond parameter.

//step1 exec pgm=sort,
//step2 exec pgm=sort
//step3 exec pgm=sort
//setp4 exec pgm=sort,cond=(4,noteq,step3) or cond=(4,gt,step3)
//step5 exec pgm=sort,cond=(0,noteq,step3)

It was going to be achieved by IEBEDIT utility program. You can include the step for which you want to run with respect to multiple steps and if you also want to exclude any specific step in the JCL you can do that using Exclude Condition.

IEBEDIT can be executed for any specific step from multiple step.
Similar for Excluded any specific step from from multiple step.
