Day Seventeen Jesse Tree Prophecy to Promise Christmas Advent



December 17 is the 17th day of the Jesse Tree.

Day 17 Ornament - A cross.

Day 17 Scriptures - Isaiah 53; and Luke 2:8-18; John 19:11-18 and John 10:15 -

"I lay down my life for the sheep."

The Old Testament and the New Testament readings correspond by exposing the meaning of Christmas. We celebrate the birth of a baby only because of that baby's fulfillment of prophecy in the sacrifice on the cross followed up by His resurrection from the dead. He now rules at the right hand of God in heaven. Without this life-ending victory at the cross, there would be no reason to celebrate Christmas.
