What does Jesus mean by: “My yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

Jesus said: “Take my yoke upon you . . . for my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” But being “yoked” usually implies a heavy burden. Yet, Jesus gives us the image of being yoked alongside Him while He is the One pulling the load. It’s as if we are along for a scroll next to Him and watching as He moves mountains.
