An Important Parenthesis - Genesis 38
(You can watch this entire service at THIS LINK.)
Not all Bible stories could air on the Hallmark channel. Come to think of it, there are maybe only a handful! The story of Judah and Tamar from Genesis 38 certainly wouldn't make the cut. It is shocking and sad, and tells the story of sinning, suffering Judah. Above all, it grabs our attention and helps us focus on the ever-conquering grace of God in Christ. This hard story is actually full of hope.
