Jesus tells his friends that he will be killed

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

Joyce Ferrie



Jesus spoke to his friends.

He said, “Listen. We are on our way to the city.

The city is called Jerusalem.

When we get there something will happen.

          The things that the Bible told about me will come true.

I will be handed over to wicked men.

They will make a fool of me and spit on me.

They will whip me and kill me.



Then three days later I will come back alive again.”



Jesus’ friends did not know what he meant.

They did not understand.


This was the third time he had tried to tell them.



Luke 18:31-34   No. 37.
