WOW! JESUS SUFFERED BECAUSE OF THOSE WHOM WERE
enemies to their own lives/souls
teaching us to not do the same
Makes this instruction of the Lord as a protection in Matt 11 with more understanding to me
Jesus Offers Rest to People
25 At that time Jesus said, "I ·praise [bless; thank; acknowledge] you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the people who are wise and ·smart [learned; intelligent]. But you have ·shown [revealed] them to ·those who are like little children [L little children; infants; C those with a childlike faith].
26 Yes, Father, [ because] this is what ·you really wanted [pleased you].
27 "My Father has ·given [entrusted/committed to] me all things. No one knows the Son, except the Father. And no one knows the Father, except the Son and those whom the Son ·chooses [desires; intends] to ·tell [reveal it].
28 "Come to me, all of you who are ·tired [weary] and ·have heavy loads [overburdened; T heavy-laden] and I will give you rest.
29 ·Accept my teachings
[ Take my yoke upon you] and learn from me, because I am gentle and humble in ·spirit [heart],
and you will find rest for your ·lives [souls; Jer. 6:16]. 30
·The burden that I ask you to accept [ …because my yoke] is easy; ·the load I give you to carry [ and my burden] is light."
