New Testament Come Follow Me FHE Lesson – “Behold, Thy King Cometh”

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

Jesus Christ is our King! In this Come Follow Me FHE lesson, we go over what we can do to praise Christ in our everyday lives and why He is deserving of honor. Each of our FHE lessons includes three lesson plans for different ages, treat recipes, activity ideas, and more.



Matthew 21:9

And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the Son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest.



Lord, I Would Follow Thee| Hymn #220

1. Come, O thou King of Kings!
We’ve waited long for thee,
With healing in thy wings,
To set thy people free.
Come, thou desire of nations, come;
Let Israel now be gathered home.

2. Come, make an end to sin,
And cleanse the earth by fire,
And righteousness bring in,
That Saints may tune the lyre
With songs of joy, a happier strain,
To welcome in thy peaceful reign.

3. Hosannas now shall sound
From all the ransomed throng,
And glory echo round
A new triumphal song;
The wide expanse of heaven fill
With anthems sweet from Zion’s hill.

4. Hail! Prince of life and peace!
Thrice welcome to thy throne!
While all the chosen race
Their Lord and Savior own,
The heathen nations bow the knee,
And ev’ry tongue sounds praise to thee.




Video: Begin the lesson by watching the following video about Zacchaeus.


Ask: What did Zacchaeus do to be closer to Jesus?

Read: Jesus knew Zacchaeus by name and where he was. The Savior knows you by name. He sees you and loves you. When we do our best to be near Him, He will call out to us. Sometimes, we may feel like Zaccaheus. We may feel like no one likes us or that we’ve made some big mistakes. No matter what, Jesus loves us. He wants to help us and change our hearts.

Ask: What are some things we can do to show Jesus we want to be close to Him?

Read: We can show our love for Jesus by worshipping Him. When Jesus arrived in Jerusalem, many of His disciples waved palm branches and cried “Hosanna!” We can worship Jesus by keeping the commandments and living the gospel. We can tell God how grateful we are for Jesus when we pray.

Share: Share an experience where you felt gratitude for Jesus and wanted to worship Him.

Testimony: Close with your testimony.


Video: Begin the lesson by watching the following video. Ask everyone to ponder on the question, “How do I show the world that I know Jesus is the Christ?” Discuss that question after the video is done playing.


Read: Jesus Christ bears many titles and takes on many roles in our lives. He is our Savior. He is our Friend. He is our Advocate with the Father. The title of King is one that we may not think about very often. Yet, both ancient and modern prophecies remind us that Jesus is our King and deserving of glory and worship.

Ask: What do you think of when you hear the word “king”? What can we learn about what Jesus can do for us with this title?

Read: Just as those who waved palms recognized the divinity of Christ and celebrated, we can show our love and admiration for Christ throughout our lives.

Ask: What are some ways we can honor and recognize Christ in our everyday lives?

Testimony: Close with your testimony.


Learn about the word Hosanna by reading what the Guide to the Scriptures has to say about it. Read the related references. Ask yourself how you can praise Christ in the upcoming week.
