Jesus is a descendant of one of Jacob’s twelve sons. The three oldest are disqualified by their sinful actions. Judah (fourth born) would seem to have been disqualified too. But today’s passage shows a new Judah. Something has happened. He doesn’t blame others; he takes responsibility. He is willing to be imprisoned in Egypt to save his father from misery. As you will read in several days, Judah receives his father’s blessing to be Jesus’ ancestor (“the scepter will not depart from Judah, nor the ruler’s staff”). I love this story of transformation and redemption!
