Prayerfully study and think about what the specific needs of your primary are and how you can teach them this doctrine.
Sharing Time Instruction:
Place the following pictures on the board: President Thomas S. Monson, Joseph Smith, Isaiah, John the Baptist, and Nephi. Ask the primary children what all of these men have in common? Explain that each of them are prophets and each of them testified of Jesus Christ.
Show the children the week's theme poster and invite them to repeat with you, "Prophets testify of Jesus Christ".
Give each class a scripture (See printable above). Invite them to read the scripture as a class and to decide on what that prophet prophesied about Jesus Christ. Then invite a representative from each class to come up and draw a picture of the thing prophesied about Jesus, while the rest of the primary guesses what they are drawing and which prophet prophesied it. Then discuss each one.
Isaiah 9:6: Prophet: Isaiah; Prophesy: The Birth of Jesus Christ
Mark 1:6–8: Prophet: John the Baptist; Prophesy: Baptism and the Holy Ghost
2 Nephi 25:26: Prophet: Nephi; Prophesy: Remission of their Sins, through Christ
Doctrine and Covenants 76:20–24: Prophet: Joseph Smith; Prophesy: Jesus Christ is the son of God and He lives.
Explain that our current prophets also testify of Jesus Christ. Play the following video: He Lives: Testimonies of Jesus Christ.
