Would you want Jesus to touch your baby?

Luke Bible Background

New Testament: Luke 18.15

To read the Bible in a year, read Luke 18.1–17 on April 21, In the year of our Lord 2020

By Don Ruhl

Who would not want Jesus to touch their children? Yet, when parents brought their children to Jesus for Him to touch them, watch what happened:

Then they also brought infants to Him that He might touch them; but when the disciples saw it, they rebuked them.

– Luke 18.15

Putting ourselves in the sandals of the disciples, what were they thinking? They probably thought that Jesus was far too important to be dealing with children, but that only shows that they did not yet know and understand Jesus, as they later did.


  • Do you love children as Jesus did?
  • Do children frighten you?
