Saying 90

(90) Jesus said, "Come unto me, for my yoke is easy and my lordship is mild, and you will find repose for yourselves."
Mt 11:28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Mt 11:29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
Mt 11:30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

The primary reason for Thomas's teaching is to show us how to read scripture. Here Thomas is playing on the words על 'ole' which is 'yoke' and אל 'el' which is 'God' or 'Lord'. The teaching is essentially the same, and Thomas is showing how the puns are used in scripture to give meaning.
