Out of Jacob's (Israels) sons, the most favored and blessed son was Joseph. (Joseph is where we get the story of his coat of many colors.) I always thought Jesus came from the line of Joseph. NOT SO. Judah and his brothers were jealous of Jacob's love for Joseph. So Judah and his brothers devised a plan, threw Joseph down a well, was going to kill him but then sold him into slavery. Judah became Judas, betraying his brother. So why would Jesus' lineage come from Judas and not Joseph?
