Judah: The Man Like a Lion

Judah:  The Man Like a Lion

Joseph had many sons. In fact, he had twelve sons. Judah was not his oldest son. He was not the son of his favorite wife, Rachel. But he was the son that God had chosen to be the ancestor of the promised Son. When Joseph was old and about to die, he brought all of his sons to him to bless them. When he got to Judah he made a promise: the promised Son would come from Judah. He described Judah as a lion, a powerful animal, like the Son who would one day come in strength to fix the broken world.
