Jesse Tree - First Friday in Advent

On this day, the first Friday in Advent we are reminded of God's testing of Abraham by asking him to sacrifice his son Isaac. When God sees that Abraham loves Him enough to do even this - God sends a ram to take the place of Isaac. A foreshadowing of Christ's sacrifice for us a ram is the typical symbol for this day.

Here is the page from Domestic Church for the symbols of this week.

Today's reading is Genesis 22: 1-19
