The McLennans: The Jesse Tree

A friend of ours, Catherine McLennan, provides some inspiration on how to use a Jesse Tree to give a good sweep of redemption history:

I used these instructions to make a Jesse Tree a few years ago (with a few variations of my own), and we now hang this up every year. I wrap each symbol separately and hang them all on two parallel lines of fishing wire on the wall, with decorative ribbon on each end. Each parcel contains a gold chocolate coin for each of the children. We then read the story from the Bible related to each picture. They do look lovely all pinned up, and are a wonderful sweep of redemptive history – a very wholesome thing to look over once each year.

Can you work out which Bible story they each stand for?
