The purpose Primary 4 Lesson 34: Jesus Christ Teaches the Nephites the Beatitudes is to understand the truths Christ taught the Nephites help us become more like our Heavenly Father and Jesus.

Pull your 3 Nephi timeline from last week before you jump into today's scripture story. Review last week then continue the story. It's very interesting to see how quickly things change.

Print the 9 beatitudes posters to string across your board. You can have each child talk about it in more depth or send them home as pondering homework.
