Jesus Blesses the Little Children When They are Brought to Him
"And they were bringing unto him little children, that he should touch them: and the disciples rebuked them. But when Jesus saw it, he was moved with indignation, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me; forbid them not: for to such belongeth the kingdom of God." Mark 10:13-14 ASV Illustration of Jesus sitting against a tree with a baby on his lap. Little children approach him and he pats one on the head. Two women sit on the ground, holding children. Two men, probably disciples, stand nearby. A small town is in the background.
