Jesus in the temple

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

Joyce Ferrie



Jesus went to church.

It was called the temple in those days.

He saw people selling things.


They were cheating those who bought from them.



Jesus put these people out.

He said, "My church will be a place of prayer.

You have made it into a market."






Jesus taught the people about God every day.

The leaders wanted to catch Jesus.

They did not know how to catch him.

The people loved to listen to Jesus.

They did not want to miss anything he said.



Luke 19:45-48 No. 41.
