Through the mess of sin, we see the mastery of God as his promises remain unbroken.

Judah may have abandoned Tamar, his daughter-in-law, but the Lion of the Tribe of Judah will never abandon those who come to him.

The Joseph story helps us to see that when life turns upside-down, God is still in control, and he's still good.

The story of Genesis seems to be interrupted in Chapter 38 by this account of the life of Jacob’s 4th son Judah. But in the unfathomable sovereignty of God who continues to bring order out of chaos, the disaster of Chapter 38 becomes the key to God’s will to bless the world through him.

Failure to trust God’s promises caused Jacob to let fear stop him from seeking justice for his daughter and for his sons to over react with vengeance.

Jacob has been a liar since the time he was born, and we follow his footsteps here from the time he fled home to the time he returns. Although we see his lies catch up with him here, so does God, and in a demonstration of grace and mercy, God uses his trials to make him a new man.

God is in the business of transformation. And Jacob's story is off the one the first. A man who deceived his way to the top, yet God worked in his life through grace, through others and trials to be radically different.

God’s commitment to one messy family will not and cannot stop his purposes. He is a God of not just amazing grace, but also scandalous grace.

The bible says our faith is proved genuine by the tests that come our way. In Genesis 22 we see how Abraham reacts to his biggest test of faith yet.
