New Testament Notes

Christ and Little Children

            Christ and Little Children (Matthew 19:13-15; Mark 10:13-16; Luke 18:15-17). Some parents brought their children to Christ to be blessed. The disciples rebuked them, but Jesus said, 'Let the children come to me; do not try to stop them; for the kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these.' (Matthew 19:14). And he laid his hands on the children and blessed them.
