Jesse Tree - November 29, 2020 - Day 1

2020 Advent Reflections for the Jesse Tree

About the Jesse Tree

The Jesse tree helps us connect the custom of decorating Christmas trees to the events leading to

Jesus’ birth. We adorn a Jesse tree with ornaments that represent the people, prophesies, and

events leading up to the birth of Jesus.



Sunday, November 29 (First Sunday of Advent)

But a shoot shall sprout from the stump of Jesse, and from his roots a bud shall blossom. Isaiah 11:1


The first Jesse Tree symbol is a dove, reminding us of the peace and harmony of

creation as God intended. You can read the full story of Jesse in Isaiah 11:1-10 and

David in 1 Samuel 16:1-13. Jesse is the father of David, beginning a line of

descendants that will lead to Jesus, the Messiah.
