Advent Project
By: Tyler Brown
Why we celebrate Advent
We know that there are three comings of the Lord. Advent is a catholic
practice where the 'coming' of Jesus is being spiritually prepared for and
anticipated. The 'coming' is actually a threefold celebration of the birth of
Christ, the present being of Christ, and the future opening of the heavens for
us by Christ.
History of the Jessy tree
The Jesse Tree is named from Isaiah 11:1: "A shoot will spring forth from the
stump of Jesse, and a branch out of his roots." It is a vehicle to tell the Story
of God in the Old Testament, and to connect the Advent Season with the
faithfulness of God across 4,000 years of history. The Branch is a biblical sign
of newness out of discouragement, which became a way to talk about the
expected messiah (for example, Jer 23:5). It is therefore an appropriate symbol
of Jesus the Christ, who is the revelation of the grace and faithfulness of God.
