The Jesse Tree by Eric & Susan Sammons

This Advent, lead your family closer to Christ as you prepare for the Lord’s coming at Christmas. Engage with the Old Testament patriarchs and prophets who are the branches in Jesus’ family tree and come to understand fully how, in Christ, this family history becomes the history of our salvation.

As you explore Jesus’ fascinating ancestry, you’ll see how God’s plan of salvation unfolds from Adam and Eve, through the Old Testament prophets, to the birth of Christ, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, and the sacraments of the Church.

Marvel at the parallels between Adam and Christ, the New Adam; Eve and Mary, the New Eve; the patriarch Joseph and St. Joseph, guardian of the Redeemer; and others. You will also learn about the rich, faith-building customs surrounding the Jesse Tree throughout the centuries — and how to create your own.

The image of a beautiful ornament signifying an important person or event in the Bible is provided for each day. The daily meditation explains the mystery of the ornament that is featured. And extra information is included for families with older children who want to “dig deeper” into the significance of what is foretold.

The Original Christmas Nail Ornament

The hanging of the Christmas Nail has become a beloved tradition in many Christian families. This metal nail is made in the style of those believed to have pierced Jesus' hands and feet as He was crucified. The Christmas Nail Ornament ties the miracle of Christmas to the sacrifice of Christ on the cross. It comes in a gift box and is ready to hang with a red satin ribbon. Inside the gift box is the Christmas Nail Poem, along with a listing of scriptural prophesies pertaining to the coming of the Messiah.

The Christmas Nail poem:

This is The Christmas Nail.
It is to be hung on a sturdy branch,
a branch near the trunk,
a branch that will hold such a spike without being noticed by well-wishers
dropping by to admire one's tinseled tree.
The nail is known only to the home that hangs it.
Understood only by the heart that knows its significance.
It is hung with the thought...that the Christmas tree but foreshadows the Christ-tree
which only He could decorate for us,
ornamented with nails as this.
