If you want to, you can make me clean

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


Joyce Ferrie



Jesus came down from the hillside.

He had been teaching people about God.

Crowds of people had been there with him.

A man came to Jesus.

The man had a very bad disease.

The disease was on his skin.

The man knelt down in front of Jesus.

The man said, “If you want to, you can make me clean.”

Jesus touched the man.

He said, “I do want to.”

Then Jesus said, “Be well again.”

The man was well again.

His disease had gone.

“Go and show yourself to the leaders.

Let them see that your disease is cured”, said Jesus.


Matthew 8:1-4.
