{Sharing Time} Jesus Christ was chosen to be our Savior

I love what’s in the outline! There are so many options to be creative with the little letters!

Introduce the doctrine: Write on the board “Jesus Christ was ______ to be our Savior.” Have the letters c, h, o, s, e, and n scattered around the room. Let the children unscramble the letters to complete the sentence. Ask them to read Moses 4:2 to check their answer. Read the statement on the board together.

Here’s my idea:

Attach each letter to the backs picture in any order. Then flip the pictures (so only the letters show) onto the board/table.

On the board write:

How was Jesus chosen to be our Savior in these pictures?

Events that I’ve chosen for the download:

The birth of Jesus: 
Heavenly Father gave Jesus a body so that He could come to Earth. While on the Earth, He was perfect. In order for Jesus to be able to save us so we can return to be with Heavenly Father, He needed to come to Earth.
Jesus was Baptized:
Because Jesus was perfect, He didn’t need to be baptized. He was baptized to show us and to follow Heavenly Father. He was chosen to be an example to us.
Garden of Gethsemane:
Here in the Garden, Jesus was chosen and volunteered to suffer for our sins, suffer for when we are hurt and need help. He was in so much pain that He bled from the pores (have the kids look at the back of their hand and point out their pores) on His body. He was chosen because He loves us and wants us to return to live with Heavenly Father.
The Resurrection:
Because Jesus was resurrected, we will be too. He was chosen to do this because without it our bodies and spirits would not be able to rise again after we die.
(I included these because they are evidence of Him being our Savior with the piercings on His hands and feet. You can easily leave these out and choose other pictures, but I love that we can know that He visited these people and other after He died)

Jesus Visits the Nephites and blesses the children
Jesus visits the Apostles

Another way to use the fun letters, is you could have a race from one side of the room to the other with 2 sets of pictures and letters. And the “teams” try and figure out what the word is.


{Sharing Time} Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world

I LOVE studying the Doctrine and Covenants and one of my favorite sections is 43:29-35. This is all about the Millenium and I just love it.
Well verse 34 says this:
Hearken ye to these words. Behold, I am Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world. Treasure these things up in your hearts, and let the solemnities of eternity rest upon your minds.
Isn’t it just beautiful! Especially in such a dark world right now. When I saw that this was the topic for this week I had it. Treasure! Jesus Christ is a treasure don’t you think?

The events from the Savior’s life that I’ve chosen are:
The birth of Jesus
Jesus being baptized
The Sermon on the Mount
Jesus Praying in the Garden of Gethsemane
Jesus on the Cross
The Resurrection
Jesus Visits the Americas

(below included in the download)

Materials Needed:
Chalk to draw a treasure chest on the chalkboard
Jewel printouts (add the blank ones if you’d like to add any of your own- maybe add “why are you grateful for a Savior?”)
A large cardboard box/plastic box
Filler (Easter grass, shredded paper, confetti, tissue paper, etc)
Sticky Tack/tape

Read D&C 43:34 “Hearken ye to these words. Behold, I am Jesus Christ, the Savior
of the world. Treasure these things up in your hearts, and let the solemnities of eternity
rest upon your minds.”
Ask the kids, how is Jesus Christ a treasure to you? What has He done that that is like a treasure?

Draw a treasure chest on the board with the printout of picture of Jesus with the scripture in
the middle.

Put the jewels in the box with the filler. Have a child come up and find a jewel put it up on the treasure chest. Then discuss:

Question/Discussion Ideas:
Birth: Jesus Christ is the literal Son of God, why do you think that Heavenly Father wanted Jesus to have a dad here on Earth?
Why did Jesus have to come to Earth?
How was Jesus coming to Earth part of Heavenly Father’s Plan?

Baptism: Jesus is perfect, even when He was on the Earth. Why was Jesus baptized?
How was Jesus being baptized an example for us to follow?
Why are we baptized?

Sermon: Who was Jesus teaching?
How does the Savior want us to live our lives?
What other name is the Sermon on the Mount called? Why do you think it’s called the Beatitudes?

Garden: Jesus was in so much pain, who came to help strengthen Him?
Who did Jesus suffer for? Why?
How can we use the Atonement in our lives?

CrossWhat did the people do to Jesus after He was on the cross? Why did they throw a spear?
Why did Jesus ask Heavenly Father to forgive them? Who did He want God to forgive?
What were some of the signs of Jesus’ death?

Resurrection: Why was Jesus Christ’s resurrection necessary?
How many days was He in the tomb?
Who was the person that saw Him? What did she do?
Why couldn’t the apostles touch Him?

Americas: Why do you think the Savior let every person touch Him?
What do you think it would have been like to see Jesus and touch Him?
The people were so happy that Jesus had come as was prophesied, what did they do/say

(includes 9 jewels, lesson above, the scripture, and the picture with the scripture)
