Jesse

    "A shoot springs from the stock of Jesse,
    a scion thrusts from his roots...
    That day, the root of Jesse
    shall stand as a signal to the peoples.
    It will be sought out by the nations
    and its home will be glorious".

    - Isaiah 11:1, 10, which is part of today's First Reading at Mass.

    Detail from a window in Newcastle Cathedral.

      This is the only painting I know of that illustrates the root of Jesse and its fulfillment in both David and the Son of David.
