Jesus answers a hard question

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

Joyce Ferrie



Some men asked Jesus a question.

They said, "Once there were seven brothers.

The eldest brother got married.

Soon he died.

The second brother married the eldest brother's widow.

He too died.

This happened to all the brothers.

They all married the same woman.

They all died.

They had no children.

At last the woman died.



The question is whose wife will she be

when they come alive again?"


Jesus answered the question.

"Men and women on earth marry.

People who come alive again do not marry.

They are like the angels.

They do not die.

They are God's children."



Luke 20:27-36 No. 43.
