Jesse Tree

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.
