Prophecy – Jesus Christ’s Ancestor Is Judah
Date: 1859 B.C.
The scepter will not depart from Judah, nor the ruler’s staff from between his feet, until he comes to whom it belongs and the obedience of the nation is his. (NIV) Genesis 49:10
This prophetic reference is about Christ or the Messiah, who would be the ruler or King. He would descend from Judah. A Jewish reference to this passage says, “How noble is the King, Messiah, who is going to rise from the house of Judah.” Jesus Christ’s ancestor is Judah.
