New Testament Come Follow Me FHE Lesson – “Good Tidings of Great Joy”

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

This week we focus on the life of Jesus Christ. Angels brought the good news of His birth and we can continue sharing that good news today. In this Come, Follow Me FHE lesson, you will learn more about the birth of the Savior and why is it significant in our life today. Our FHE lessons include three lesson plans for different ages, treat recipes, activity ideas, and more.



Luke 2:7

And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.



Away in a Manger | Hymns, 206

1.Away in a manger, no crib for his bed,
The little Lord Jesus laid down his sweet head;
The stars in the heavens looked down where he lay,
The little Lord Jesus, asleep on the hay.

2.The cattle are lowing; the poor baby wakes,
But little Lord Jesus, no crying he makes.
I love thee, Lord Jesus; look down from the sky
And stay by my cradle till morning is nigh.

3.Be near me, Lord Jesus; I ask thee to stay
Close by me forever, and love me, I pray.
Bless all the dear children in thy tender care,
And fit us for heaven to live with thee there.




Activity: Read the Christmas story in Luke 2:1-20 and Matthew 2:1-12. Consider acting out the nativity story as you read from the scriptures, or have the children draw a picture of the nativity. 

Ask: What is your favorite part of the story of Christ’s birth?

Read: The story of Christmas is the greatest story. The Christmas story makes it possible for each of us to live with our families forever and to be forgiven of our sins. Heavenly Father loves us so much that He sent us His Son to save us all. President Thomas S. Monson stated, “Because He came to earth, we have a perfect example to follow. As we strive to become more like Him, we will have joy and happiness in our lives and peace each day of the year. It is His example which, if followed, stirs within us more kindness and love, more respect and concern for others.”

Ask: How can you follow the Savior’s example to show love to others? 

Share: Tell the children of a time when you were blessed by someone showing kindness to you at Christmas time.

Ask: What can we do this Christmas to serve someone else? 

Testimony: Close with your testimony of the Savior’s birth.


Video: Watch the nativity video together and then make a list of all the individuals and groups of people that play a part in the Christmas story. 

Ask:  Why is it significant that these are the people God chose to welcome His Son to earth? 

Scripture: Read 1 Peter 2:21–25.

Read:  Christ lived a perfect life. He is our perfect example. We will be blessed as we strive to live like Him every day. 

Ask:  How can you be more Christlike? 

Share: Tell an experience when you were blessed by the Christlike actions of someone else.

Ask: Ponder the Christmas Story and think of who Christ is to you personally. Why is the birth of the Savior important in your everyday life? 

Testimony: Close with your testimony of Jesus Christ.


Study The Living Christ: The Testimony of the Apostles to learn more about Christ’s life. Take this time at Christmas to reflect on your own testimony of the Savior.
