Mark 10:13-16

13 And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them. 14 But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. 15 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein. 16 And he took them up in his arms, put his hands upon them, and blessed them. (KJV)

13 People brought young children to Jesus, so that he could touch them. The disciples were appalled and scolded that brought the young flesh to Jesus: “What are you doing?! Do not bring children to be touched by the Lord!” 14 But when Jesus saw it, he was disappointed and said unto them, “Let me touch the children. Do not let the children suffer, for it is God’s Will for me to touch these pure children, and they shall experience the Kingdom of God.”  15 I say unto you, “Any child who does not “receive” the “Kingdom of God” shall not penetrate, I mean, enter heaven.” 16 The others looked suspiciously as Jesus continued to use air quotes for peculiar words. Then Jesus took the children that were brought to him and touched them in front of everyone. (BBI)
