ROOT OF JESSE

(shoresh yishay (Isa 11:10); rhiza tou Iessai (Rom 15:12)): The Hebrew and Greek words are practically the same in meaning. "Root" means descendant, branch of the family or stock. The Messianic king was to be of the family of Jesse the father of David. In Rom 15:12 Paul quotes the Septuagint of Isa 11:10. Jesus is a branch or descendant of the family of Jesse, as well as of David.
See also DAVID, ROOT OF.
