Jesse Tree - preparing for Advent


Jesse Tree is a way of preparing for Advent by journeying through the stories on Jesus’s family tree. Our children are preparing decorations to show how God prepared for Jesus to be born through many generations.


The Jesse Tree tradition is rooted in Isaiah 11:1: “A shoot shall come out from the stump of Jesse, and a branch shall grow out of his roots.” Jesse was the father of David, Israel’s greatest king. And Jesus is descended from the line of David. He is the branch God promised would grow from Jesse’s family tree. Each symbol represents a story from within this family tree and a step toward the birth of Jesus.
