The Allegory of the Olive Tree

The Allegory of the Olive Tree in Jacob 5 can be a little hard for children to grasp. Sometimes even us adults have a hard time deciphering it. So this week we tackled Jacob 5, broke it down and created a video and lesson bundle that teach this allegory at a child's level. We hope your families will find this helpful!

➤ I N T R O D U C T I O N


Invite children to go and find photos of family members and to “gather” them into the room where you are holding your meeting.


As photos arrive, place them together in a display in front of the room next to the image of Jesus Christ.


Discuss the following questions:


1) Who are these individuals?


2) How does Jesus Christ feel about these people?


3) Who else can you think of that you know? (Friends, neighbors, LDS or non-LDS)


4) How does Jesus Christ feel about these people?


5) These pictures were far away from the image of Jesus Christ, but now they are close. What does

that make you think of? (Discuss)
