Passage Genesis 38
Content Family, Relationships, Sex

In this message we look at the story of Judah and Tamar. We were introduced to the concept of the Levirate Law.  Levirate (from the Latin word for brother), is the practice of a brother marrying the childless widow of his brother in order to preserve his brother’s name and inheritance. As we look at this story we both see the effects of sin in Judah’s family and God’s plan for redemption in spite of that sin. In this we are reminded, that we were also shown immense love and grace by God, even in the midst of our own sins.
