Superhero from Scripture: Samuel the Lamanite

by | Dec 2, 2021 | Children & Kids, Videos | 2 comments


Hi kids! Sister Linda is back with another awesome video for you.

(Not a kid? Forward today’s post to a child in your life.)

Do you remember last time when we talked about how Nephi’s superhuman power from the Lord reminded us of Superman? If you didn’t see that one, you can watch it here.

Today, we’re introducing another important hero from the Book of Mormon: Samuel the Lamanite.

Believe it or not, this long-ago prophet has a few things in common with the Amazing Spider-Man!

Spider-Man can climb tall buildings to rescue people and escape enemies. Well, Samuel also climbed a tall wall to deliver a super-important rescue message: the message of Jesus Christ being born!

(We’re all celebrating that exact same rescue message right now during the Christmas season!)

In today’s lesson, you’ll learn why Samuel’s message was so powerful—and how with great power comes great responsibility.

Have fun watching the video. There’s a Christmas craft at the end, too!

    Hello blog readers. As we pan for next year’s blog series, I am at a crossroads whether to continue this series. My hope is to teach our children the word of God. Please leave a comment if you have found this series helpful. Please pass along to Sunday School teachers MBA. Also I am open to anything I can do to improve all for God’s glory. God bless you.

    God bless you dear Sister Linda for your gift of teaching. Learning the stories of the Gospels is so important & applying life lessons in simplicity can never be done enough no matter what the age. The crafts are so cute too! Please don’t stop-you have been given a beautiful gift.
    You remind me of a female Mr. Rodgers. 🤣❤️😊
