WHAT IS THE JESSE TREE FAMILY ADVENT?
The Jesse Tree Advent is a long standing Christmas tradition used to count down the days from December 1st to the 25th and follows God's plan to redeem his people, through Jesus, from creation to his birth in the gospels. It gets it's name from a prophesy, made by the prophet Isaiah, that a saviour would come from the family line of Jesse. Jesse was a great, great grandfather of Jesus', but his family tree was full of sinful people - rotten branches. Isaiah's prophesy spoke of the hope of a new branch that would shoot from the stump of Jesse and bear much fruit. It promised that he would stand as a banner for the people. He would be a great ruler and he would restore his people.
WHY USE THE JESSE TREE FAMILY ADVENT?
The Jesse Tree Family Advent is a Bible based advent calendar that is designed to bring families together and help prepare their hearts to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas, in worship of Jesus. It builds a wonderfully rich picture of who Jesus is and why he came. We pray that it fills you with awe and praise for our great God and his son - the King of Kings, Jesus.
