The Names of Jesus – FHE Lesson

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts



Isaiah 9:6
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.



To Think About Jesus, Children’s Songbook, Pg. #71

1. It shouldn’t be hard to sit very still
And think about Jesus, his cross on the hill,
And all that he suffered and did for me;
It shouldn’t be hard to sit quietly.

It shouldn’t be hard, even though I am small,
To think about Jesus, not hard at all.

2. I think of the miles he walked in the dust,
And children he helped to love and to trust;
It shouldn’t be hard to sit tall in my seat,
To listen politely, to quiet my feet.

It shouldn’t be hard, even though I am small,
To think about Jesus, not hard at all.




*Suitable for All Ages*


Read aloud: Names are important! When Adam was first on the Earth, Heavenly Father gave him the job of naming all of the animals. Today, we all have names. Even the Church has an official name. Names can connect us to our family, our ancestors, and the world around us. Names can be a symbol of things we stand for. Names help us find a sense of identity and can remind us of who we want to be.

Ask: Where did you get your name from? What do you like about your name? [Families with younger children can talk about what their names mean and if they are named after anyone in particular.]

Read aloud: Jesus Christ, throughout the history of the world, has been known by many names. The names of Christ help us understand who he is and what he can do for us. It is important to understand this because by knowing Christ, we can know our potential and prepare to live with God again.  

Ask: Can you think of some of the names Jesus Christ has gone by? [Messiah, Redeemer, Holy One of Israel, Bread of Life, Prince of Peace]

Have your family or group open up to the Bible Dictionary and turn to “Christ, names of.” Instruct everyone to read through the list and find one that stands out to them. Give them a few minutes to read those scriptures. Gather back together and discuss what you’ve learned about Christ from these scriptures. For families with young children, read through some of the basic ones and have your children stop you on one that sounds interesting. Then explain it to them.

Read aloud: In the scriptures, we learn that by knowing God we can have eternal life. Sometimes, it can be hard to understand what it means to have a Savior and all of the things Christ did for us. By learning the names and titles Christ went by, we can come to know him better.
Finish the lesson by bearing your testimony.
