Josiah Lesson Plan

Josiah became king of Judah when he was only eight years old. He learned a lot about God and God’s word and
he wanted to live by the word of God. As a young king, he discovered that the temple was not being used
properly. He wanted the temple cleaned out and restored. Everything that did not relate to God was taken out of
the temple and burned. People began to use the temple to worship God again. Inside the temple, the Ten
Commandments, as given to Moses, was discovered. This was very exciting to Josiah, but he was worried
because his people had not lived by God’s word. Josiah then sends word throughout the land about the laws that
God had given the people. The young king promised that he would live by the laws and his people did, too.
They made a promise and asked for forgiveness.
