Descendent of Judah

The scepter will not depart from Judah, nor the ruler’s staff from between his feet, until he to whom it belongs shall come and the obedience of the nations shall be his. Genesis 49:10 NIV

Have you ever done a family tree? I remember when my daughter had to do one for school. At the time we were visiting my grandmother, so my daughter interviewed her great-grandmother. We learned something that I didn’t know. We were distant cousins to Abraham Lincoln. My grandmother had a letter from a cousin of his. It is interesting to know who your ancestors are. There are several DNA organizations that have helped people find where their ancestors were from.

You can follow Jesus’ human ancestors through the genealogies in the Bible. You know, those list of names that we often skip over when we read the Bible.  Follow the line of Judah. Both Luke 3:23-38 and Matthew 1:1-17 give a genealogy.
