Christ and children and the failure of the disciples to understand the attitude of Jesus

Mat 19:13-15

13 Then some people took little children to him, so that he might put his hands on them in blessing: and the disciples said sharp words to them.
14 But Jesus said, Let the little ones come to me, and do not keep them away: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.
15 And he put his hands on them, and went away.

Mar 10:13-16

13 And they took to him little children, so that he might put his hands on them: and the disciples said sharp words to them.
14 And when Jesus saw it, he was angry, and said to them, Let the little children come to me, and do not keep them away; for of such is the kingdom of God.
15 Truly I say to you, Whoever does not put himself under the kingdom of God like a little child, will not come into it at all.
16 And he took them in his arms, and gave them a blessing, putting his hands on them.

Luk 18:15-17

15 And they took their children to him, so that he might put his hands on them: but when the disciples saw it, they said sharp words to them
16 But Jesus sent for them, saying, Let the children come to me, and do not keep them away, for of such is the kingdom of heaven.
17 Truly I say to you, Whoever does not put himself under the kingdom of God like a little child, will not come into it at all.
