The Shoot from the Stump of Jesse Cross is a most meaningful gift for many of life’s most special events and occasions: a special birthday, a housewarming, a wedding, a wedding anniversary, and the funeral of a loved one. This bronze cross evokes two biblical themes: the “Tree of Life” of the Book of Genesis and the Book of Revelation, and the “Shoot from the Stump of Jesse” of Isaiah 11:1-10. This solid bronze wall cross possesses heirloom quality and will be displayed prominently for many years to come!
A Solid Bronze Wall Cross from Germany

The Cross of Christ is the Tree of Life in Bloom
The Tree of Life in Genesis (2:9; 3:22, 24) prefigures the Cross of Christ, while the Tree of Life in Revelation (2:7; 22:2,14,19) is the Cross of Christ in full fruition. The Cross of Christ – the Tree of Life Past (Genesis) and the Tree of Life Future (Revelation) – is also the “Stump of Jesse.” Christ is the “shoot” from the figurative “stump” of the Tree of Life. The Tree of Life Eternal – figuratively “cut down” and lost to humankind in the Fall and expulsion from the Garden of Eden – is restored to humankind in the birth, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ:
A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse; from his roots a Branch will bear fruit. The Spirit of the Lord will rest on him—the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of might, the Spirit of the knowledge and fear of the Lord—and he will delight in the fear of the Lord. (Isaiah 11:1-3)
