A New Testament perspective on children
A summary of the position of the child in the ancient times and, more specifically, biblical times is first given. After this attemion is focussed upon covenantai theology pertaining to the Reformation, and the position of the child in terms of it. Then follows an exposition of the Sitz im Leben of the so-called Kinderevangelium in Mark 10:13-16 and other corresponding passages. Lastly, suggestions are made concerning the way in which the child should be given an acceptable position in the church.
