We all know we need to rest, yet it seems hard to accomplish. We can’t leave work on time, can’t take adequate time off, and even when we do we still have to go back to work. This passage in Mark revolves around a dispute concerning rest, and Jesus responds to the enemies of rest by pointing to Himself as the True Rest.
