Judah: Rightful Heir or Best Among a Dysfunctional Family??

The headline for this week could be said as:  “Our last week in the Book of Genesis!!”…..which is certainly true.  (Spoiler alert…next week we’ll tackle Exodus.)

This week’s focus is on Abraham’s descendant, Judah.  The family tree gets a little fractured, to say the least, and I’ll try to “white board” it all out as a fun exercise at this Friday’s fellowship.

But the real focus this week is not just on God’s path in fulfilling His promises….but also on a family’s cast of characters.  Remember the phrase: “You can’t make this stuff up?”  You might find yourself asking that question as we dig into several generations of Abraham’s, Isaac’s, and Jacob’s offspring.

Homework this week is to read Chapter 6 of our book, and the corresponding section in the Study Guide.

You might also consider glancing over the passage on Judah in Wikipedia……It may help you come better prepared for this twisted family tree!

We’ll gather this week at The Cornwell Center starting at 7:30 am.  Mike will lead this week’s lesson on Genesis, chapter 49, verse 10.

“The scepter shall not depart from Judah”  GEN 49:10
