A story from the New Testament about Philippi
It’s the Sabbath, the rest day for the Jewish people.
There is a group of people standing by the river in Philippi. They are all women. They have come together to pray. They believe in the Lord God and love him a lot. One of the women is called Lydia. She is a very rich woman. She sells beautiful red and purple material that you can use to make wonderful clothes.
A bit later a few men come walking up to the women and sit on the ground next to them. The women are surprised. They don’t know who they are. What are they doing here?
One of the men says ‘I am Paul”. We thought that you were praying. We also love the Lord God and also his son Jesus. He is the saviour, the Messiah.”
The women are even more surprised. Do these men know who the saviour is? The Messiah?
Then Paul starts to talk....
