An EasyEnglish Story Unit (AEE) from Acts

Joyce Ferrie



After Stephen was killed,

many of the people who loved Jesus left Jerusalem.

They went to other places and told people about Jesus.

A man called Barnabas went to Antioch.

He and Paul told the people more about Jesus.

It was in Antioch that people who believed in Jesus

were first called Christians.


Are you a Christian?

Do you know Jesus?



While they were there, they heard about a famine.

A lot of people would be hungry.

They would die if they did not get food.

The Christians collected money.



The money was to buy food for the hungry people.





Acts 11:19-27 No. 11.
