 Alexander Master, Jesus sets a child among his disciples, Koninklijke Bibliotheek, The Hague, 1430

Then he took a little child and put it among them; and taking it in his arms, he said to them, "Whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes not me but the one who sent me [NRSV, Mark 9:36-37]."
