Scripture Fathers

On Father’s Day we honor the fathers and grandfathers who do so much for us. Fathers in the scriptures also did much for us. Can you match these scripture fathers with their descriptions? Check the scripture references if you need help.

1. This man is the earthly father of our whole human family. (See Gen. 3:20.)

 

a. Abraham

2. This father saved his family by obeying the Lord’s command to build an ark. (See Gen. 6:12–22.)

 

b. Adam

3. This father was told to sacrifice his only son on an altar. At the last moment, an angel stopped him from completing the sacrifice. (See Gen. 22:1–12.)

 

c. Alma

4. This rich father left all his possessions behind when the Lord told him to flee to the wilderness. Two of his sons supported him, but two of them murmured and caused trouble. (See 1 Ne. 2:1–3, 12, 16–17.)

 

d. Jairus

5. Because of this father’s prayers, his rebellious son and his friends were visited by an angel and became great missionaries. (See Mosiah 27:8–18, 32, 36.)

 

e. Joseph Smith, Sen.

6. Because this man didn’t believe it when an angel told him that his elderly wife would have a baby, he was unable to speak until the baby was born. (See Luke 1:5–7, 11–13, 18–22, 57–64.)

8. This father listened and believed his young son when he said that he had seen a messenger from God. (See JS—H 1:3, 30, 33, 48–50.)

 

h. Zacharias

Articles of Faith Word Maze

Find a letter path through the maze by connecting the letters that spell out the eighth article of faith by reading forward, backward, down, up, and diagonally. Your path must never cross itself. Be careful—some of these are tricky! We have started you off with the first two words, We believe. (See A of F 1:8.)
