Jesus and Children

Jesus’ journey towards Jerusalem and his destiny continues, as does his instruction of the disciples with the second prediction of the sufferingwhich awaits him.
Mark sharpens his rather negative view of this group by presenting them as not only failing to understand but also as being reluctant to ask him to explain. Instead, they get into an argument about the order of ranking amongst themselves. Jesus then sits down, which means that he is teaching officially, and tells them that true greatness consists in service and respecting those whom society regards as not counting for much. He presents them with a child to illustrate his point; here the child does not represent innocence but a person with no rights or standing within the community. There is nothing to be gained by taking notice of a child in the society of that time. By embracing the child, Jesus is performing a symbolic action: he is showing by his attitude and action that God is reaching out to those individuals whom the society of the day does not recognise as worthy of care and respect.
We might note that Jesus is telling his listeners that they should welcome those people whom the child represents as they would welcome Jesus himself, and in this way they willwelcome the Father. The apparently insignificant person thus represents Jesus and should be treated with the appropriate honour and respect. The Lord says this most clearly inMatthew’s account of the Last Judgment: “Whenever you did this to the least of these, youdid it to me.”
