Shoot of Jesse



The next stop was at an olive tree that had been completely cut down, but that had sent up shoots from its roots. There was a board with a quotation from Is 11:1. The shoot from the root has nothing to do with gangster or thriller movies. It is just that the olive tree never dies. And the Lord promises a shoot from the stem of Jesse: the Messiah. The shoot is NEZER, and so there is a connection also with Nazareth, and Jesus of Nazareth, and Christians who are called Nozrim, those from Nazareth.
