Jesse tree

A Jesse Tree is a depiction of the genealogy of Jesus designed in such a way as to show that He springs from the “root of Jesse”  per the prophecy of Isa 11:1:

And there shall come forth a rod out of the root of Jesse [David’s father], and a flower shall rise up out of his root.

Basically, it is a daily Advent activity, where following certain Scriptures, you make ornaments and put them on a Jesse or Christmas tree.

We did this two years ago in a form of a booklet. This year I give the kids freedom to choose what kind of Jesse tree ornaments they would do.
