Jesse is an American sitcom television series created by Ira Ungerleider, starring Christina Applegate , which ran on NBC from September 24, , to May 25, , with the total of two seasons and 42 episodes. She works for her overbearing father in a German-themed bar, serving beer while wearing a dirndl. Jesse's love interest, a Chilean named Diego Bruno Campos , gains a rival when her former husband comes to town, intent on winning her back. In the second season, Jesse becomes a nurse and stories revolve around her friends instead of her family. While Jesse was in the top 20 in the Nielsen ratings regularly, the show lost much of the audience from Friends , its powerful lead-in.
Meaning & History
Jesse was the son of Ohed, and the grandson of Boaz and Ruth. He was a farmer and sheep breeder in Bethlehem. It became a standard poetic metaphor in the Bible. All evoke the figure of David. That the family of David would endure forever was an article of faith in monarchic circles 2 Samuel 7 , supported by the fact that his dynasty had occupied the throne on Mount Zion in unbroken succession for over four centuries.
But probably because we co-edited the Deadline Artists anthologies with our friend Jesse Angelo, we feel a fidelity to the form. There, Jesse once again spotted Wahlberg and his friends lurking. With Mac and Jesse we wanted to establish a friendship that was mostly a product of their common situation and enclosed world. Brute is the story of Mac and Jesse , two disenfranchised teens who turn to robbing houses as a form of recreation and quick cash. The town in which the son of Jesse had first appeared, entreating help in the guise of an imbecile, thus fell before him. All the moral lessons to his little daughter Jesse are taken from reminiscences of his 'poor dear first wife,' who never existed. The tales of large wolf packs, Jesse insisted, were travelers' fancies. Many a time Jesse would whip a slave, throw him down, and gouge his eyes out.
His son David is sometimes called simply "Son of Jesse". The role as both father of King David and tribal ancestor of Jesus has been used in various depictions in art, e. He lived in Bethlehem , in Judea, and was of the Tribe of Judah , he was a farmer , breeder and owner of goats. He was a prominent resident of the town of Bethlehem. He is important in Christianity , in part because he is in the Old Testament and mentioned in the genealogy of Jesus. Later rabbinic traditions name him as one of six ancient Israelites who supposedly died without sin, the other five being Benjamin , Caleb Cain , Epharim , Saraphim , and Manaphim. One day the prophet Samuel came to Bethlehem sent by God, to anoint the next king of Israel.
