The Father Revealed in the Son(A)

25 At that time Jesus said, “I praise you, Father,(B) Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children.(C) 26 Yes, Father, for this is what you were pleased to do.

27 “All things have been committed to me(D) by my Father.(E) No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.(F)

28 “Come to me,(G) all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.(H) 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me,(I) for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.(J) 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”(K)

Jesus Is Lord of the Sabbath(L)(M)

12 At that time Jesus went through the grainfields on the Sabbath. His disciples were hungry and began to pick some heads of grain(N) and eat them. When the Pharisees saw this, they said to him, “Look! Your disciples are doing what is unlawful on the Sabbath.”(O)

He answered, “Haven’t you read what David did when he and his companions were hungry?(P) He entered the house of God, and he and his companions ate the consecrated bread—which was not lawful for them to do, but only for the priests.(Q) Or haven’t you read in the Law that the priests on Sabbath duty in the temple desecrate the Sabbath(R) and yet are innocent? I tell you that something greater than the temple is here.(S) If you had known what these words mean, ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice,’[a](T) you would not have condemned the innocent. For the Son of Man(U) is Lord of the Sabbath.”
