All Saints Margaret Street | The Great Jesse Window

: The Great Jesse Window

The great stained-glass window of 1877 at the west end was designed by Alexander Gibbs. It depicts the Tree of Jesse, inspired by the 14th-century Jesse Tree window at Wells Cathedral in Somerset.

Below this is an 1899 tile panel designed by Butterfield and painted by Alexander Gibbs that depicts three Old Testament scenes: Moses lifting up the serpent (which symbolises the Crucifixion); Abraham offering his only son Isaac (as God gave his Son for our sins); and Melchizedek, priest of God.
