Jesus from The Story of Jesus: Through the Eyes of Children and His encounter with children
In that moment Jesus from The Story of Jesus: Through the Eyes of Children movie and the apostles had just departed Capernaum and entered the region of Judea since it was his final trek towards Jerusalem. When He arrived in the region of Judea, He healed the ailing and answered questions asked by Pharisees that were around in the moment. In a small town Jesus was walking through, villagers began bringing their kids towards Jesus for Him to pray for them and bless them. The apostles by watching all the parents and children near Jesus, they reprimanded them telling them to not bother Jesus.
Jesus from The Story of Jesus: Through the Eyes of Children DVD was bothered with those remarks said by the apostles so he says to his followers "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it." (Luke 18:16-17, NIV). After saying those special words He took the children close to him and blessed them. This encounter of Jesus from The Story of Jesus: Through the Eyes of Children movie and the children mentioned in the books of the Bible like Matthew, Mark and Luke have different perspectives on the encounter but its message is the same. In the moment where the apostles dismissed the adults and their children proved that they did not understand. Maybe in their minds as dismissing the children, they thought they were protecting Jesus, His decency, not wanting Him to be bothered. The children with their innocent trust and confidence had a heavenly outlook in contrast to the disciples in that occasion. Jesus loved kids because of their innocence. Their simple, giving trust and lack of disdain was of great value to Him. There He taught everyone around that to enter heaven there is no need of academic intelligence, praiseworthy achievements or how much money the person had. To enter it only required faith in the Lord Most High. Quickly after the lesson, it is written that Jesus advised a rich young man to be humble. The man went away unhappy because he trusted his wealth more than having that trust in God. Here he continues the subject of being like a child while accepting the Gospel.
This story of the children with Jesus presented in the Bible and in The Story of Jesus: Through the Eyes of Children film serves as a standard to follow because it shows the type of faith people need to have. Sometimes people tend to make their spiritual life and relationship with Jesus more difficult than it should be. It is of the utmost importance to look at ourselves and analyze if we have the childlike belief and faith to rely on Jesus and only Him to be able to enter God's kingdom in Heaven.̴Ì_
