About this Series

There is no doubt as you read the Gospels that Jesus is a controversial character. Even his closest friends and family are at times uncertain about who he is and what he is doing. In Matthew Chapters 11-12 we see Jesus responding to this uncertainty and opposition forthrightly. Although some people will reject him and some will plot against him nevertheless at the end of each chapter (11:25-30; 12:46-50) Jesus appeals to people to become true disciples.

Matthew 11:25-30 | Jordon Hitchcock |

Jesus: Rest

Mother’s Day
Blessings on all the mothers, grandmothers, spiritual mothers and mother-figures. We thank you for your roles in giving life and nurture. May God fill you afresh with his Spirit and peace. “Come to me all who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest” (Mt 11:28). Many mothers (and fathers) have no doubt taken comfort in such a verse. But what is Jesus talking about? Rev Jordan Hitchcock will help us understand this in the context of today’s passage at the end of Mt 11.
