FHE Lesson {Names of Christ}

Opening Song: I'm trying to be like Jesus #78

Opening prayer:

At our Stake conference we had a lesson on Symbols in the scriptures, including symbolic names for Christ. I thought it would make a nice lesson.

Explain that we might have many names. We can be a mother, father, son, daughter, aunty, child, Mr, Mrs, husband, wife, we have first names, last names, titles. People might know as by our school, nationality, or religion names.

Just the same Jesus is known by many titles.
 {Here is a List of 200 names of Christ for reference}

Share some of these titles with matching pictures and discuss the meaning of them.
You could also print the pictures and titles and have the kids match/find them

{Bread of Life}

As bread sustains our mortal body Jesus will sustain our spiritual body and  eternal life.
He is the bread of our eternal life.

{Lamb of God}

Jesus holding a lamb
The sacrifice of lambs was an important part of life in Bible times.
When Jesus died and Atoned for our sins he became the Lamb of God for us.

{Living Water}

Water refreshes us and quenches our thirst.
When we study the scriptures and learn of Jesus this is the living water

{Good Shepherd}

Just as a shepherd cares and keeps safe his sheep, so too does Jesus want to help us, keep us safe and lead us home

{Light of the World}

We turn on a light to dispel darkness. Just as Jesus is our light in the darkness to walk towards

We need to be good examples of our names and live up to our name and be proud of it.
Just as we learn of all the names of Jesus and his great example to us.


Set a family Goal for Children to find some of the names of Jesus in family scripture reading
and underline or colour.

Closing Song: Tell me the stories of Jesus #57

Closing Prayer:

Treat: Bread and water :)
