给小孩子按手祈祷(可10:13-16;路18:15-17)

13那时,有人带了小孩子到耶稣面前,求他给他们按手祈祷,门徒就责备那些人。




13 ¶ Then were there brought unto him little children, that he should put his hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them.
13 Verse 13. Then were there brought unto him little children]

These are termed by Luke, Lu 18:15,

ταβρεφη, infants, very young children; and it was on this

account, probably, that the disciples rebuked the parents,

thinking them too young to receive good. See on Mr 10:16.



That he should put his hands] It was a common custom among the

Jews to lay their hands on the heads of those whom they blessed,

or for whom they prayed. This seems to have been done by way of

dedication or consecration to God-the person being considered as

the sacred property of God ever after. Often God added a

testimony of his approbation, by communicating some extraordinary

influence of the Holy Spirit. This rite has been long practised

among Christians, when persons are appointed to any sacred office.

But this consecration of children to God seems to have grown out

of use. It is no wonder that the great mass of children are so

wicked, when so few, are put under the care of Christ by humble,

praying, believing parents. Let every parent that fears God bring

up his children in that fear; and, by baptism, let each be

dedicated to the holy trinity. Whatever is solemnly consecrated

to God abides under his protection and blessing.
