Come Follow Me: John 14-17 “Continue Ye in My Love”

Come Follow Me
Come Follow Me: Matthew 26; Mark 14; John 13 “In Remembrance”Come Follow Me:
I’ve broken today’s lesson into two main parts: “The Woman Who Anointed Jesus” and “The Last Supper.” I plan to use this lesson plan for guiding my own family scripture study. Therefore, I’ve broken things up into very small chunks where we can just focus on one part of the stories as we read them. For example, we’ll likely focus on each of the 4 themes I listed under “The Woman Who Anointed Jesus” on 4 separate days. If you are using this plan for a lesson at church, just pick and choose what makes sense for your class.
