Through Jesus, you are a part of God’s family. This Advent, consider His great story anew. The Jesse Tree is filled with symbols that walk you through the story of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection. Jesus is the Seed of Jesse’s tree. He is the Root of Jesse’s tree. He is the Life of Jesse’s tree. And He is the Firstfruit of Jesse’s tree (Isaiah 11:1).
