In the gospel of Mark there is an episode where women bring their children to Jesus to have them blessed. Jesus' followers stop them, but Jesus then says that one should receive the Kingdom of God the way a child would if one wants to enter it.

Von Uhde depicted part of that story in a comtemporary setting.
