Pentecost

Take my yoke upon you . . . and you will find rest for your souls."
(Matt 13:29)

Fifth Sunday after Pentecost

John the Baptist Sends Messengers to Jesus

Mat 11:16 "But to what will I compare this generation? It is like children sitting in the marketplaces and calling to one another,
Mat 11:17 'We played the flute for you, and you did not dance; we wailed, and you did not mourn.'
Mat 11:18 For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, 'He has a demon';
Mat 11:19 the Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, 'Look, a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!' Yet wisdom is vindicated by her deeds."

Jesus Gives True Rest

Mat 11:25 At that time Jesus said, "I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and the intelligent and have revealed them to infants;
Mat 11:26 yes, Father, for such was your gracious will.
Mat 11:27 All things have been handed over to me by my Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.
Mat 11:28 "Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.
Mat 11:29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
Mat 11:30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."
