“Names of Jesus,” Liahona, August 2017
Here’s an activity your family can do. Learn about Jesus Christ by reading these scriptures and filling in the name used in the verse. Then share one way you know Jesus loves you!
Jesus is our _____________ and Redeemer. He saved, or “redeemed,” us from death and sin through the Atonement. Because of this, we have the chance to live with our Heavenly Parents again one day.
The name _______________ means “the anointed.” This name for Jesus reminds us that He was the King the prophets and scriptures had taught about.
Before Jesus was born on earth, He was called ________________, the God of Israel. This name was so sacred that Jewish people didn’t say it out loud, but instead used other names like Lord when talking about Him.
Jesus is the Good _______________. He loves us and wants to guide and protect us, just like a shepherd cares for his flocks.
A _________________ is a go-between person, or someone who helps solve problems between people. Because we all sin, we all need help to be able to live with God again. Jesus can help us with this problem! He “mediates” for us, giving us chances to change and have eternal life even though we make mistakes.
Jesus is sometimes called the _________________ because He helped make this beautiful earth for us, under the direction of Heavenly Father.
Jesus is the ____________________. Even when bad things happen, we can feel peace and hope by learning about Jesus and following His teachings. He loves every single person in this world—including you!
