Details

The Advent tradition of creating a Jesse Tree comes from the verses in Isaiah and Matthew that speak of Jesse, the father of King David. “There shall come forth a shoot from the stump of Jesse, and a branch shall grow out of his roots. And the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord” (Isaiah 11: 1-2) and “Abraham was the father of Isaac, and Isaac the father of Jacob, and Jacob the father of Judah and his brothers…and Matthan the father of Jacob, and Jacob the father of Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom Jesus was born, who is called Christ.”  (Matthew 1: 1-16).  On each branch hangs a picture of some of the forty-two generations of Jesus’ ancestors from both the Old and New Testaments. The pictures of the Holy Family are often placed at the top. Each paper ornament can be colored by the children for their own personal touch. The ornaments either hang 3-D on your family Christmas tree for home use, or display them on the Jesse Tree Christmas tree poster included with the kit for classroom use. This kit also includes a short history of the Jesse Tree, suggested Scripture verses for each ornament, and a Jesse Tree prayer service. The Jesse Tree is a wonderful Advent tradition that fosters reflection on salvation history as a preparation for the celebration of Christmas. This great activity for families, classrooms, and parishes.

Jesse Tree Kit


By:
Review: The individual pictures were good but I bought a tree to hang them on in class rather than use the sheet that can with the kit. Good deal for the price.

It is a new family tradition.

Good for younger children

Review: Each reading has a little synopsis so the children can get the gist of what you're about to read from the bible. Very clear and the pictures for the ornaments are very good.

Wonderful Family Project

Review: We used this kit to make beautiful, meaningful ornaments. I was very pleased with the symbols that were included as well as the verse references and verse summaries. The drawings were VERY nice and look great colored with markers. We painted flat round wooden discs from the craft store to mount the cardstock ornaments on, then drilled a hole for ribbon. The poster included as an option and the prayers are also nice. Pros: High Quality
