Jesus has a meal with his friends

An EasyEnglish Story Unit (AEE) from John’s Good News

Jesus and his friends were having a meal.

He said, “One of you is not really my friend.

One of you will betray me.

He will tell the leaders how to catch me.”


The leaders wanted to arrest Jesus.


Jesus’ friends could not understand this.

“Who is it?” they asked.


Jesus said, “I will dip some bread into the sauce.

The one I give it to is not my friend.”

Jesus gave the bread to Judas.

“Be quick about what you are going to do”, Jesus said.

None of Jesus’ friends understood.

They thought that Jesus had sent Judas to buy something.

Judas was in charge of the money.

Judas went out of the room at once.

It was night.



John 13:21-29    No. 16.
