“Be It unto Me according to Thy Word” (January 7-13)


Matthew 1; Luke 1

My lesson starts with Time for Sharing, where learners review the study scriptures and share their favourite verse or doctrine. The rest of the lesson focuses on Luke 1:37; “With God nothing shall be impossible” and we finish the Time for Sharing by discussing the JST change to this verse.
After discussing the Godhead (with associated scriptures if needed) an activity helps to focus learners on the fact that the Godhead work together for our good. The Doctrine of “With God nothing shall be impossible” is taught by reading Luke 1:26-38, watching three videos with a class discussion inbetween each video. The lesson concludes with a quote from Elder Neal A Maxwell followed by Learning at Home slides for the next two weeks.

Q. If you could meet anyone in the New Testament besides Jesus, who would it be?
Explain that we are often drawn to righteous people because they follow the Saviour and testify of him. This week’s lesson discusses several people whose righteous examples can help us draw closer to him. 


“[Jesus Christ] was the Only Begotten Son of our Heavenly Father in the flesh—the only child whose mortal body was begotten by our Heavenly Father. His mortal mother, Mary, was called a virgin, both before and after she gave birth. (See 1 Ne. 11:20.)” President Ezra Taft Benson


Hard to understand words such as holpen or deserts are defined to help with your study. Chapter structures are included to help you see the themes and messages as you study. Additional 3 page pdf file is included with all the JST changes to the scriptures for this week.


Matthew 1:20 – Mathew mentions Joseph’s dreams five times. Tradition holds that a good dream was regarded by Jewish men as a sign of God’s favour. According to tradition, it would have been unwise to unduly postpone obedience to an inspired dream. To thwart or put off the Lord’s favour was to wreak his wrath.

  1. I just got your lesson 2. It looks wonderful. One comment: In your chart of contrast of characters you show Zechariah where I believe you intended Zacharias.
    Is it possible for you to email me an updated chart?



    1. Hi Jan, Glad you found the Resource Kit and Lesson helpful. The chart you are referring to is from a non King James Version of the Bible. It is from the NIV (New International Version) Quickview Bible. I purchased it as it has wonderful bright colours with illustrations and charts. You are right, the chart should refer to Zacharias as based upon our bible version, but as it is based upon a different translation, they refer to Zechariah instead. I hadn’t noticed the difference, so a lesson for me there too. I have edited the chart and added a note stating that.
      I thought you might find this BYU article about the confusion interesting, as well as this response from ‘Ask Gramps’ about the differing names.
      I will happily email you and the other purchasers an updated copy of the Resource Kit. Thank you for letting me know.
