Judah's Payback - Gen 38
Please read this chapter and see if you are not disgusted.
Having read in the previous chapter that Judah was the one who concocted the plan to sell Joseph into slavery, we now see him reaping the whirlwind in Chapter 38.
This family is a mess! The players are Judah, his sons Er, Onan and Shelah. Er's wife Tamar and her two sons, Pharez and Zarah.
My, what a sordid tale this chapter this is.
Long story short, you reap what you sow! Gal 6:7,8.
However, we are amazed to find that it is into the tribe of Judah that our Lord Jesus was born.
