The symbol of the Jesse Tree comes from Isaiah:
“The royal line of David is like a tree that has been cut down; but just as new branches sprout from a stump, so a new king will arise from among David’s descendants.”
The tree is named after Jesse, the father of the great King David of the Old Testament.
Follow along with the story of the Jesse Tree by hanging a new ornament each day in December. The ornaments tell the Christmas Story – from Creation to the birth of Jesus, and they show Jesus’ ‘family tree’ through the Bible.
