Words Jesus Didn’t Say

Then people brought little children to Jesus for him to place his hands on them and pray for them. But the disciples rebuked them.

Jesus replied, “Send the children around the corner to a children’s program that one of my lesser disciples is running. She will look after them.”

  1. You’re kidding? Yes? Jesus didn’t say that? But He must have done it. I’m sure, for example, when Paul’s letter reached the church at Ephesus, all the children were separated from their parents in their own classes or kidz church as the words “children obey your parents in the Lord …” were read.

    Thank you Pieter!

  2. We can have a lotta fun thinking about what Jesus didn’t say. One I’ve often (not) quoted is: “I need to talk to the adults for 75 minutes now, but I want you to keep your kids with you so they can learn to sit still for that time – they need to learn self-discipline while they’re young and this is a great way to teach them!”

    15 On reaching Jerusalem, Jesus entered the temple courts and began driving out those who were ahead of him in the queue for a cappuccino. He overturned the tables in the cafe area, 16 and would not allow anyone without a coffee go through to the temple courts. 17 And as he taught them, he said, “Is it not written: ‘My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations’[a]? But nobody could be expected to concentrate without a caffeine hit.’[b]”

    18 The chief priests and the teachers of the law heard this and began looking for a way to kill him, for they feared him, because the whole crowd was amazed at his teaching.

  4. The quotes of “man”…how congregations separate…old folks here…children here….young adults here.

  5. All I can is OOH!!!
