Church is attacked in Israel – level 1

22-06-2015 07:00

This news is from Israel. It is about a church. This church is special. It is the “Church of the Multiplication of the Loaves and Fishes”. Christians believe that Jesus fed 5,000 people in this church.

Somebody sets this church on fire. The fire destroys the inside parts of the church. Also, somebody puts hateful graffiti on one wall.

People want to build the church again.

Difficult words: fed (past of “feed” – to give food), hateful (not nice), graffiti (text or picture that someone draws on something).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
