The Jesse Tree is the family tree of Jesus Christ. Its name comes from Jesse, the father of King David, referring to the words of Isaiah: “But a shoot shall sprout from the stump of Jesse, and from his roots a bud shall blossom” (11:1). This prophecy refers to the coming of the Messiah from the family of King David. Over time it became tradition during Advent to review the family of Christ as a way of illustrating the story of salvation.
The Jesse Tree for Families presents a lovely, achievable way to celebrate the liturgical season of Advent with your children. Each day focuses on a specific person from Jesus’ family tree with a meditation perfect for the whole family and a beautifully illustrated portrait, plus an ornament to hang on your family’s Jesse tree. Conversation starters and resources for parents are included, with the goal of helping your family grow in faith so that, together, you can prepare for the arrival of Christmas.
