about Jesus can be difficult for us to understand.
Things that we believe about God are
completely outside our experience, and that
can be difficult to get our heads around too.
Adults as well as children sometimes struggle
with it all.
But it is OK to ask questions and try to work things
out. The more we ask questions and talk about it
together, the more we understand. I believe
God wants us to keep asking questions!
Last month we looked at the story of Paul, and
how he took the story of Jesus to different
countries right across the Mediterranean. But
he wasn’t the only person to spread the word.
Many other followers of Jesus did the same.
This month we are looking at the story of how Jesus’s disciple Philip met a high official from Ethiopia. The man was reading the bible but he didn’t understand it all. He asked Philip questions and said, ‘How can I understand, if no one explains it to me?’ Philip was able to explain the passage that the man was reading, and was so helpful to him, that the Ethiopian decided to become a follower of Jesus too, and to be baptised.
Watch two videos here about that story, and three more on the next page about asking questions!
