Ideas for Teaching Matthew 5 and Luke 6
The above “short clips from seeking Jesus” have lots of ideas for teaching topics from Matthew 5; here’s a PowerPoint that has the visuals used in those clips.
I think it’s interesting to compare similarities and differences in what Christ says in the Gospel accounts. Here’s a handout you could use to invite learners to careful compare what Christ says in Matthew 5 and Luke 6. There is a point that is especially prominent in Luke’s version…can you find it? (Hint–if you look carefully, it’s clear that in Luke, Jesus is emphasizing the importance of this principle recently taught by Elder Holland). If I were teaching a group of students I might give them the handout, have them see if they can identify the principle, and then once they have, ask them to ponder and share how they could apply Christ’s teaching in their own lives this week. The final two quotes from Elder Holland in the talk above might be particularly relevant.
I hope these resources are helpful to you in your learning and teaching this week!
