After pronouncing woes upon those who do not Repentance is a central biblical teaching. All people are sinful and God desires that all people repent of their sins. The Hebrew word for repent means to "turn away" from sin. The Greek word for repentance means to "change on'e mind," more specifically, it means... and believe in the Son of Man, Jesus is the Messiah whose life, death, and resurrection are God's saving act for humanity asserts his oneness with the Father, and in the Father’s name promises that all who come to him with their burdens will find in this gentle master rest for their souls.
Jesus’ pronouncement of woes upon those who do not respond to his “deeds of power” (11:20) is a reminder of both John’s and Jesus’ initial preaching and its call for repentance in light of the coming of the kingdom of heaven. Now in explicit language of revelation (11:25, 27; unique to A tax collector who became one of Jesus' 12 disciples in the The Synoptic Gospels are Matthew, Mark, and Luke. They are called Synoptics because they view the gospel story from a similar point of view; they also share large blocks of narrative material in common., but reminiscent of similar language in John), Jesus addresses the Father and announces that his ministry is a sign of his oneness with the Father and with the Father’s gracious will (11:26). That will is seen in the Father’s handing over all authority to the Son (see also 28:18-20).
And now in this revelatory passage we hear what the Son will do with that authority. In one of the most beautiful passages in the Gospels, Jesus claims his authority as God’s The Messiah was the one who, it was believed, would come to free the people of Israel from bondage and exile. In Jewish thought the Messiah is the anticipated one who will come, as prophesied by Isaiah. In Christian thought Jesus of Nazareth is identified... and promises, “Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest” (11:28-30). The promise is noteworthy in the words “all you” in the personal, passionate, and universally comforting appeal of this “I Am,” who is gentle and humble in heart.
