It’s my takeoff on a Jesse Tree for advent.
I call it a Jesse’s Branch derived from this verse about Jesus from the prophet Isaiah…
Jesse's Branch- Isaiah 11:1-4
Each day of the month of December we add one of the homemade tags with one of His titles printed on one side, and the scripture reference where the verse is found printed on the other. A little pack of spiral bound note cards has each passage written out.
Here are the 25 Names/Titles of Jesus I chose with the scripture reference.
Jesus -Matthew 1:21
Savior-1 John 4:14
Son of God- Luke 1:32-35
Son of Man-Matthew 18:11
King of Kings -1 Timothy 6:14-15
Lord of Lords-1 Timothy 6:14-15
