Three years ago I thought of this idea,
or maybe it would be more correct to say God planted this idea in my heart.
It’s a bit of a cross between a Jesse Tree and an Advent Calendar.
All it took was a branch and some simple tags purchased at an office supply store.
Then I chose 25 titles for Jesus and wrote each one on a tag,
with the scripture reference where the title is found on the other side of the tag.
Each day of December leading up to Christmas we add a tag to the Jesse’s Branch.
Each day we remember another aspect of Who He is and all that He does.
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
Bread of Heaven-John 6:51
I Am-Exodus 3:14
Alpha and Omega-Revelation 1:8
The Word- John 1:1
The Way, The Truth, The Life- John 14:6
Lamb of God- John 1:29
The Door- John 10:7-10
Good Shepherd-John 10:11
The Deliverer-Romans 11:26
My Beloved-Song of Solomon 7:10
Faithful Witness- Revelation 1:5-6
My Righteousness-1 Corinthians 1:30
Wisdom of God-1 Corinthians 1:30
Lion of Judah- Revelation 5:5
The idea has caught on in our church and now several of the families have added a Jesse’s Branch to their Christmas traditions.
