Today we want to talk to you about Jesus' ancestors.
What are ancestors Cloë?
Ancestors are all the people that came before. They start with the mom and dad, aunts and uncles, then the grandparents and then the great grandparents and great aunts an uncles and on and on!
So although Jesus is God, He also became human, which is why He had ancestors. Do you know who some of his ancestors are Tallulah?
Let me think. Mary was his mom, and Joseph his dad here on earth. And Anne and Joachim were his grandmother and grandfather. I think that's all I know.
The Old Testament tells us that the Messiah, meaning Jesus, would descend from the house of David.
One of the ways to learn about Jesus' ancestors is to make a Jesse Tree!
Who is Jesse? And why does he have a tree named after him?!
Jesse was King David's father. And a Jesse Tree is like a family tree, but in this case the tree starts with Jesse!
Here are some links to download what you need to make your own Jesse Tree.
2. Lacy over at Catholic Icing has all kinds of neat ideas for a Jesse Tree.
3. Catherine at the Domestic-Church website also has a pattern for a Jesse Tree.
This sounds like a great project Cloë for the last few days of Advent.
It sure does Tallullah! I hope people try it out.
