The story of Judah and Tamar, is one of the more difficult passages in the book of Genesis. It is often overlooked because many find it disruptive to the more well known Joseph story. In actuality, to the original author and audience the story of Judah was just as significant as Joseph's story. It is somewhat painful to see how Judah starts off, but it is critical to his transformation by the end of the book. This is a story of human wickedness, while at the same time a story of God's incredible grace. How does God work in and through the darkest events of our lives?
