day no. 13,038: judah, Jesus and genesis

Genesis 44:33

Now please let your servant remain here as my lord’s slave, in place of the boy. Let him go back with his brothers.

Judah offfered to put himself under the wrath of Pharoah in order to set Benjamin free. 

Now, it bears pointing out that at this point Judah isn't even sure if Benjamin is innocent.  He has no evidence to suggest that Benjamin DIDN'T steal the silver cup.

Even so, Judah offers himself as a substitute for his brother Benjamin.

One day Another who went by The Lion of the Tribe of Judah would do the same.

He would be King and Sacrifice, Christ and crucified.

Genesis 49:10

The scepter will not depart from Judah
or the staff from between his feet
until He whose right it is comes
and the obedience of the peoples belongs to Him.

Revelation 5:5

Then one of the elders said to me, “Stop crying. Look! The Lion from the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has been victorious so that He may open the scroll and its seven seals.”

He would offer Himself for people He KNEW were sinners.
He would rule and reign and redeem as true Judah!
