Biography

Jesse - Father of David, and therefore ancestor of all the kings of Judah and also of Christ (Ruth 4:17, 22; 1 Chr. 2:5–12; Matt. 1:5–6). He is repeatedly mentioned in connection with the early history of David (1 Sam. 16:18; see also Isa. 11:1, 10). We are not told the name of Jesse’s wife.
