Jesus Blesses the Children 

(Compare with Mark 10:13-16, Luke 18:15-17)

Why do you think this episode gets included in the gospels? Why do you think the disciples tried to prevent the children from being brought to Jesus?

What do you know of the place of children in 1st century Jewish/Roman society? How have things changed since then? How have they remained the same? In what ways could/should we improve access for children in our church activities / lives?

What could we say about children and their approach to Jesus? How do they get there in the first place? What is our responsibility towards children in this regard?

What can we learn about how adults approach Jesus? What does this say about our power in approaching the Kingdom?
