Elizabeth has a baby boy

An EasyEnglish Story Unit (AEE) from Luke's Good News

The time came for Elizabeth to have her baby.

She had a baby boy.

All her friends were very pleased and said "Thank you" to God.

The family wanted to give the baby a name.

His mother said, "His name is to be John."

The family said, "There is no-one in the family with that name."

They asked the baby's father.

He was still not able to speak.

He wrote on a big stone, 'His name is John'.

At that moment he was able to speak again.

Everyone was a bit scared at these things that happened.

They knew there was something special going on.

"What is this child going to be?" they wondered.

The baby's father spoke a message from God:

"You my child will be a messenger from the Most High God.

You will go before the Lord to tell people to get ready for him.

You will tell people that they will be saved by having their sins forgiven."



And so the child John grew.


He became known as John the Baptist.



Luke 1:57-80 No. 5.
