The man who was deaf

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

The man who was deaf



Jesus met a man.


He was not happy.

He was deaf.


He could not hear anything.

He did not hear what anyone was saying.

He could not hear music.


And he could not speak properly.

He could not sing.

His friends asked Jesus to help him.


Jesus took him to a quiet place.

Jesus touched the man’s ears.

Jesus touched the man’s tongue.

Jesus said, ‘Open’.

The man could hear and he could speak.

He was very happy.

His friends said,

‘Jesus is wonderful’.

Mark 7:32-37


Dear Lord,

We think you are wonderful too.

Sometimes our friends don’t understand us.

You always understand us.

That’s why we think you are wonderful.
