The Early Church adopted the idea of Jesse Trees to help people link decorating Christmas trees with the events and prophecies leading to Jesusโ€™ birth.

A Jesse Tree depicts the relationship of Jesus with Jesse and other Biblical figures who were the ancestors of Jesus. Jesse was the father of King David and is looked upon as the first person in the genealogy of Jesus.

๐ŸŽ„ Our Jesse Tree resource features press out baubles which you can tie to your Christmas Tree with some thread. There’s a Scripture passage to look up and read each day and a quiz question on the reverse of the baubles (you’ll find the answers to these in the day’s Bible passage). ๐ŸŽ„
