About Jesse .

Wikipedia: Jesse and ישי.

Father of King David. The Talmud (Shabbat 55b), tells us that the "Abigal daughter of Nahash" referred to in 2 Samuel 17:25 is in fact King David's sister and that Nahash is Jesse's other name, and that he was thus named, because never having sinned in his life, he only died "due to the Serpent [Nahash]".


   Jesse. Father of David, and therefore ancesor 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 repeatedlymentioned in connection with the early history of David (1 Sam. 16:17; see also Isa. 11: 1, 10). We are not told the name of Jesse's wife.
   Jesse. The grandson of Ruth and Boaz, Jesse is best remembered as the father of the great King David. He was a prominent man, perhaps the leader, at Bethlehem, and the father of eight sons. During David's outlaw days, Jesse and his wife were sent to relatives at Moab for safety. He was undoubtedly elderly by that time, and probably did not live to see his yougest son crowned ad king of the united monarchy. Although in David's day the term "son of Jesse" was spoken with a sneer, to call attention to David's humble origins, in time it came to be used as a synonym for the expected Messiah. Ruth 4:17, 22; I Samuel 16, 17, 20, 22, 25; II Samuel 20:1; 23:1; I Kings 12:16; I Chronicles 2:12; 2: 13; 10:14; 12:18; 29:26; II Chronicles 10:16; 11:18; Isaiah 11:1, 10. --Everyone in the Bible by William P.
