  • Judah was reluctant to let his remaining son Shelah marry Tamar, so she disguised herself as a prostitute and slept with Judah, becoming pregnant with his child.
  • When Judah discovered that Tamar was pregnant, he ordered her to be burned alive for prostitution, but she revealed that he was the father of her child.
  • Tamar gave birth to twins, Perez and Zerah, who would become ancestors of King David and ultimately Jesus Christ.
  • During the famine, Judah and his brothers went down to Egypt to buy grain and were reunited with their brother Joseph.
  • Judah offered to take Benjamin's place as a slave when Joseph accused him of stealing a valuable cup.
  • Judah pleaded with Joseph to spare Benjamin and offered himself as a substitute, demonstrating his willingness to sacrifice himself for his family.
  • When Jacob was on his deathbed, he blessed his sons and prophesied that the scepter would not depart from Judah's hand until the coming of Shiloh, a reference to the Messiah.
  • Judah's tribe became one of the largest and most powerful in Israel, and was known for their military prowess.
  • David, the greatest king of Israel, was a descendant of Judah.
