Jesus heals a sick boy

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

Joyce Ferrie



A man came to see Jesus. He asked, “Lord please help me.

My son has fits and is a very sick boy.

Sometimes he falls into the fire or into water.

I asked your friends to help but they could not.”


“Bring the boy to me”, said Jesus.

Jesus made him well again.


Later, Jesus’ friends asked why they could not help the boy.

Jesus said, “Because you have little faith.

If you had faith as small as a mustard seed you could do anything.”


Jesus told his friends once more that he was going to die.

He said he would live again on the third day.

His friends were full of sorrow.



Matthew 17:14-23.
