Jesus Christ Family History Skit

Shared by Kristina M: “We did an activity focused on Family History, but we decided to do it with a twist.  The kids practiced and then acted out the “Family History Tree of Jesus.”  It was fun for the kids to learn stories from the Old and New Testament – but to make the connection that all those stories have to do with Jesus’ Family Tree made an impact. It…

{Sharing Time} The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ

Encourage understanding: Read together the title of the Book of Mormon from the title page. Read the following scriptures aloud, and have the children raise their hands when they hear other names of the Savior:2 Nephi 19:6Alma 5:383 Nephi 5:26. As the children identify the titles, write them on the board. Choose several titles, and explain how the Savior fulfills those roles.

Encourage application: Give each child a bookmark with the sentence “The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ” written on it. Invite them to decorate the bookmark and use it in their scriptures. Consider having several children report on their goal to establish a habit of regular scripture study (see January, week 2). You could invite them to share their feelings about scripture passages they have read.

The Old Testament tells us about Jesus Christ before He came to live on earth. He was called Jehovah. The Old Testament tells about people who followed Jehovah. The New Testament is the book of scripture that tells us about Jesus’s life on earth. His disciples wrote about His life and His teachings.

The Book of Mormon also teaches about Jesus Christ and people who followed Him. The Book of Mormon begins in Jerusalem during the time of the Old Testament, about 600 years before Jesus was born. It tells how the prophet Lehi and his family left Jerusalem and were led to a promised land, far across the ocean in the New World. Prophets in the Book of Mormon taught that Jesus would come to The Book of Mormon Teaches of Jesus Christ earth. They also taught that repenting and following Jesus Christ would bring happiness. After Jesus was crucified and resurrected in Jerusalem, He visited the New World to teach the people. He taught about baptism, the sacrament, and how to love others. He organized a church with twelve Apostles. He gathered the children and blessed them, just as He had in the New Testament. Like the prophets in the Bible, Book of Mormon prophets shared their testimonies of Jesus Christ. (source)

Many people in the world today believe that when Jesus was on the earth, He was only with the people in Jerusalem. The Book of Mormon teaches us that Jesus also visited the people of Americas.
Both the Book of Mormon and the Bible teach and testify of Jesus Christ. The Book of Mormon doesn’t replace the Bible.

Sharing Time:

Right click and save the picture above and print, as you are talking about the italicized from above show the picture when you get to the Book of Mormon part.
For the older kids: Bring in highlighters and have the kids come up and using the highlighters, highlight the names of Jesus (as suggested in the outline)
I found 9 in the scriptures:
The Good Shepherd
The Everlasting Father
The Lord
Mighty God
Prince of Peace
Son of God
Another way you could use both the scriptures and the picture squares is by having a “race”. Put up the scriptures onto the board. Have all the squares on a table by the scriptures. And race to see who can find the names the quickest.
For the younger kids: Print out 2 of each of the pages with the pictures of Jesus.  (Each are a representing the different names from the scriptures in the outline) You could also cut the picture squares in half and play a matching halves game.

{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.
