A coin from a fish

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


Joyce Ferrie



One day, a tax collector asked Peter,

“Does Jesus pay any tax?”

“He does”, answered Peter.


Jesus told Peter to go to the lake.

“Throw out your fishing line.

Take the first fish that you catch.

You will find a coin in the mouth of the fish.

Take it and pay your tax and mine with the coin.”


Matthew 17:24-27.
