THEY WERE BRINGING CHILDREN TO JESUS
Mothers and fathers were bringing their children to Jesus, they were asking him,
“Teacher, ask God to do good to our children.”
Jesus' men rebuked the parents. When Jesus saw it he was upset (lit. 'his stomach became bad'), he told his mob,
“I want the children to come to me. You should not block them.
With gladness they believe in God, they listen to (= obey) his word. I tell you a true word, you all should do like them, you all should believe like them. If you don't, you will not be God's (people).”
Then one by one he put those children on his lap, he put his arm around them, he put his hand on top of the child's head, he asked God, “Do good to this child.”
