If you want to know about Jesse then you’ve found a good place.
Who is Jesse?
He was the grandson of Ruth.
He was the father of who would turn out to be King David.
He lived in Bethelehem, in Judah
But David went and returned from Saul to feed his father’s sheep at Bethlehem. (1 Samuel 17: 15)

The Book of Isaiah
(Isaiah 11: 1-2)
- (1) And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots:
- (2) And the spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord;
And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious. (Isaiah 11: 10)
