Lessons From The Trilbe of Judah

The Lion of Judah, my trust is in you.....

Any discussion on the tribe of Judah must begin with its most notable descendant — Jesus Christ.

Jacob blessed his fourth son, Judah propbetically as it it written:

“Judah, your brothers will praise you…your father’s sons will bow down to you...Like a lion he crouches and lies down…The scepter will not depart from Judah [until] the obedience of the nations shall be his” (Genesis 49:8-10).

We learn from this blessing that Judah would be a powerful nation, worthy of praise. Jacob’s blessing also compares the tribe of Judah to a lion, the king of all animals who fears no other animal despite having enemies who wish to kill it.

In comparison, Scripture calls Jesus “the King of kings” (Revelation 17:14), who also fears no one and yet has enemies who wish to obliterate His name from the Earth.

The prophecy that the scepter “will not depart from Judah” testifies to Jesus’ supremacy and eternal rule.

The main

lesson here is that, despite the world’s contempt for Christ, we, as Christians, are to remain faithful to Him.

As Jacob’s prophecy and the gospels make clear, Jesus’ rule shall be eternal and at His name, every knee will bow (Philippians 2:10-11).

As a song writer wrote:

He is Lord, He is Lord Amen, He has risen from the dead He is LORD, every knee shall bow every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is LORD.
