The Jesse Tree is a beautiful Advent Devotional that many Catholic Families use during the season of Advent. But, what is the Jesse Tree…and is there a way to use this devotional that is EASY and MEANINGFUL for Catholic families? I strive to answer both of these questions in this video.
First of all, the Jesse Tree is a walk through the ancestors of Jesus Christ, starting with Adam and ending with Jesus Himself. Each day of Advent is assigned a different character from Jesus’s family tree (the Jesse Tree) and the family will spend time looking at that character through some Bible Verses and a symbol that is often portrayed on an ornament that is hung on the tree.
If you would like to use the Jesse Tree with your Catholic Family this year, I encourage you to download and use the FREE QUICK START GUIDE TO THE JESSE TREE. It lists all of the characters, verses to read for each and a symbol as well. You can grab the guide right here:
But, many families struggle with the Jesse Tree once they get into weeks two and three of Advent. The characters aren’t very familiar, and the verses can be lonnnnnggg. However, I have discovered, that they REAL point of the Jesse Tree is NOT to memorize all of these characters from the Old Testament.
The point is to get to know GOD THE FATHER so that we are ready to welcome His Son on Christmas, Jesus Christ. JOIN US ON FACEBOOK! https://www.facebook.com/groups/21255… I encourage you to get started with the Jesse Tree and pray that you have a blessed Advent season with your family!
