Jesus & the Children – Bloch

     This artwork, by C. Bloch, shows Christ blessing children and reproaching His apostles for attempting to keep the children from Him. This event is recounted in Mark 10: 13-14: "And they brought to him young children, that he might touch them. And the disciples rebuked them that brought them. Whom when Jesus saw, he was much displeased, and saith to them: Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not; for of such is the kingdom of God."
