How does Jesus fit into the story of the creation of the world by God.
Understanding the bible as a whole story from God and about God is hard for many adults but with pictures and stories children learn quickly.
The Tree Tells The Whole Story in Picture
During the middle ages reading was a luxury.
Mom’s and Dad’s did not have story books to read to their children. Instead parents told there children stories from the bible.
Often parents and the priests at church used simple drawings to talk about bible stories.
Each Ornament on the Jesse Tree Represents a Bible Storytelling
The tree itself is simple often
a small pine tree (real or fake)
a branch of a tree (you could paint it a color and add sparkles!)
a cut out a tree from paper or felt to place your ornaments
The biblical origin of the Jesse Tree is from Isaiah 11:1-2. There we learn about the promise of Jesse, King David’s father.
Jesus is a descendant of King David. The Jesse Tree Activites bring this story to life with the birth story of Jesus.
Enjoy this activity with you kids. The little ones can color in the ornaments while you talk about the Bible story .Making the Jesse Tree part of your Advent preparation for Christmas.
