Verse of the Day (July 23, 2020) #BMSeminary – {Let the children alone} This is aorist active imperative. Jesus was emphatic in His desire to be available to all. {do not hinder them from coming to Me} This is present active imperative with a Negative particle. This grammatical construction implies to stop an act which was already in process. {for the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these} This did not refer to the children themselves, but those (1) with child-like characteristics or (2) who see themselves in a low or receiving position who will enter the kingdom of God (cf. Mat 18:2-4). This is not a verse on the salvation of children. The NT is written to adults! [You Can Understand the Bible by Dr. Bob Utley]
