Jesse Tree and Avent

The Jesse tree advent wreath symbolizes the coming of Jesus Christ, the king of the kings and descendent of Jesse, father of King David. This is very well described in the first verse of eleventh chapter of Isaiah. " A shoot shall come out from the stump of Jesse, and a branch shall grow out of his roots.

The Jesse Tree is appropriate symbol of Jesus Christ, who is revelation of the grace and faithfulness of the God. After God saved the descendents of Abraham from oppressive rule of the Egyptians and delivered them to good land, they forgot the God who saved them. After passing away of David, the later kings and religious kings served their own selfish interests and started worshipping false gods of the land.
