How to Start a Jesse Tree Tradition at Christmas Time




If you are looking for a new tradition to do with your family at Christmas time then you might want to consider adding a Jesse Tree to your list of traditions.

What is a Jesse Tree and why do we use the name Jesse?

It all started in the Medieval times and told the story from Creation to the Birth of Christ.

Jesse comes from the father of King David. and coincides with the Bible verse Isaiah 11:1-4:

A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse;
    from his roots a Branch will bear fruit.
The Spirit of the Lord will rest on him—
    the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding,
    the Spirit of counsel and of might,
    the Spirit of the knowledge and fear of the Lord
and he will delight in the fear of the Lord.
He will not judge by what he sees with his eyes,
    or decide by what he hears with his ears;
but with righteousness he will judge the needy,
    with justice he will give decisions for the poor of the earth.
He will strike the earth with the rod of his mouth;
    with the breath of his lips he will slay the wicked.

The branch signifies new life (that we have in Christ).


The benefits of a Jesse Tree:

1. Another way to focus on Christ at Christmas
2. Make special memories
3. These traditions can be passed on to your grandchildren
4. Each ornament signifies a story int he Bible

You can use this as an advent idea and count down the days as you use the ornaments! It is wise to  get a separate smaller tree to do this or use branches put in a mason jar.
