Advent Day 9: Family Ties

Lo, how a rose e'er blooming
From tender stem hath sprung
Of Jesse's lineage coming
As seers of old have sung

According to the Bible, Jesus was descended from Jesse through King David. The Jesse tree, an Advent tradition, is a symbol of what family means in the story of Jesus' birth.

What is the Jesse Tree?
What it is, what it means, and what you need to make one.
