Jacob, on his deathbed, calls in his twelve sons and tells each one what will happen to his descendants in days to come. To his fourth son, Judah, he utters one of the most detailed and explicit prophecies about Jesus in all the Bible. Early Christian writers such as Justin Martyr used this prophecy as powerful evidence to convince unbelievers of the faith. In this lesson we explore facets of this prophecy about the "Lion of the Tribe of Judah." This lesson includes insights from Christians in earlier ages about Jesus' reign, divinity, death, resurrection, and relationship to the Gentiles that will equip us to prove the faith to unbelievers today.
