The IVP New Testament Commentary Series – The Greatest Is the Child (18:1-5)
The Greatest Is the Child (18:1-5)

Compare Mark 9:33-37 and Luke 9:46-48. The disciples are concerned with an issue naturally prominent in status-conscious Mediterranean antiquity: who will be greatest in the kingdom (v. 1; compare 5:19; 20:26; 23:11). Jesus declares that the kingdom belongs to children (compare 19:14). This paragraph urges at least two lessons.
