FWIW, I like to think of CeMaX as a Sport or a Scion. The Tree of Jesse
was felled at the Exile (2 Kings 25:6-7), but the "stump" would remain in the
ground for a new CeMaX to eventually appear. God had promised to David that
there would always be a Davidic king to sit upon the throne. See Psalm 89.
See also Psalm 2 and 2 Samuel 7:25-29.
