A Tale of 2 Trees & a Choice

Why the Cross

Isaiah 11:1-2 CEB - A SHOOT will grow up from the STUMP of Jesse; a BRANCH will sprout from his ROOTS. The LORD’s spirit will rest upon Him…

Isaiah 11:9-10 BBE - There will be no cause of pain or destruction in all My holy mountain: for the earth will be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the sea is covered by the waters. And in that day, the eyes of the nations will be turned to the ROOT of Jesse which will be lifted up as the flag of the peoples…

Zechariah 3:8 NLT – “Soon I am going to bring My Servant, the BRANCH…”

Hosea 14:8 NLT - O Israel, stay away from idols! I am the one who answers your prayers and cares for you. I am like a TREE that is always green; all your FRUIT comes from Me.”
