A little girl lives again

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


Joyce Ferrie



A very important man came to see Jesus.

He said, “My daughter died.

Please come with me.

Put your hands upon her and she will live.”

Jesus followed the man to his house.



All the people in the house were crying.

The little girl was dead.

“She is not dead. She is only asleep”, said Jesus.

The people laughed at Jesus.


Jesus went to see the little girl.

He held her hand. She got up.

She was alive again.



Jesus made her alive again.


Everyone talked about what Jesus did.



Matthew 9:18-19, 23-26.
