Matthew 11

11:1 And 1 it came to pass, when Jesus had made an end of a commanding his twelve disciples, he departed thence to teach and to preach in b their cities.

(1) Christ shows by his works that he is the promised Messiah.
(a) Of instructing them with precepts.
(b) The disciplesí cities, that is to say, in Galilee, where many of them were born; (Acts 2:7).
11:7 2 And as they departed, Jesus began to say unto the multitudes concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken with the wind?
(2) The similarity and the difference between the ministry of the prophets, the preaching of John, and the full light, of the gospel, which Christ has brought.
11:11 Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the c kingdom of heaven is greater than he.
(c) In the new state of the Church where the true glory of God shines: the people are not compared together, but the types of doctrines, the preaching of John with the law and the prophets: and again, the most clear preaching of the gospel is compared with Johnís.
11:13 For all the prophets and the law d prophesied until John.
(d) They prophesied of things to come, which are now present, and clearly and plainly seen.
11:16 3 But whereunto shall I liken this generation? e It is like unto children sitting in the markets, and calling unto their fellows,
(3) There are none who are more stout and stubborn enemies of the gospel, than they to whom it ought to be most acceptable.
(e) He blames the perverseness of this age, by a proverb, in that they could be moved neither with rough nor gentle dealing.
11:19 The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners. 4 But f wisdom is justified of her children.
(4) That which the many refuse, the elect and chosen embrace.
(f) Wise men acknowledge the wisdom of the gospel when they receive it.
11:20 5 Then began he to upbraid the cities wherein most of his mighty works were done, because they repented not:
(5) The proud reject the gospel offered to them (to their great hurt and pain) which leads to the salvation of the simple.
11:25 At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast g revealed them unto babes.
(g) Through the ministry of Christ, who alone shows the truth of all things pertaining to God.
11:26 h Even so, Father: for so it seemed i good in thy sight.
(h) This word shows that he contents himself in his Fatherís council.
(i) Godís will is the only rule of righteousness.
11:27 6 All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and [he] to whomsoever the Son will reveal [him].
(6) There is no true knowledge of God, nor quietness of mind, but only in Christ alone.
11:30 For my yoke [is] k easy, and my burden is light.

(k) May easily be carried. For his commandments are not grievous, for all who are born of God overcome the world; (1 John 5:4).
