Apparently, Venerable Ānanda became a Stream-winner after listening to the Ānanda Sutta (A.iii.118) given by Puṇṇa Mantāṇiputta.
Ānanda Sutta wrote:“Taṃ kiṃ maññasi, āvuso Ānanda, ‘Rūpaṃ niccaṃ vā aniccaṃ vā”’ti? ‘Aniccaṃ, āvuso’. Vedanā.. Saññā.. Saṅkhārā.. Viññāṇaṃ niccaṃ vā aniccaṃ vā’ti? ‘Aniccaṃ, āvuso’. Tasmātiha … … Evaṃ passaṃ … … Nāparaṃ itthattāyāti pajānātīti. Puṇṇo nāma āvuso āyasmā mantāṇiputto amhākaṃ navakānaṃ sataṃ bahūpakāro hoti. So amhe iminā ovādena ovadati. Idañca pana me āyasmato puṇṇassa mantāṇiputtassa dhammadesanaṃ sutvā dhammo abhisamitoti

See Hellmuth Hecker's biography of him. The author gives citations for all of the many sutta passages he quotes, so you can then go to Sutta Central if you want to read any of them in full.
