Good fish and bad fish

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

Joyce Ferrie



Jesus said,

“God’s Kingdom is like a fishing net.

The net caught all kinds of fish.

The fishermen pulled the net in.

They put the good fish into a basket.

They threw away the bad fish.


This is like the end of the world.

The angels will come and separate God’s people

from those who do not follow Him.

The sinners will be destroyed.

God’s people will live in His Kingdom.

Do you understand?” asked Jesus.



Matthew 13:47-51.
