  • Re: Judah as a New Testament Person

    [quote user="Kathleen Marie"] Technically, Judah (the son of the patriarch Jacob) is listed as an ancestor of Jesus. And this is important to the book of Matthew. Important in ways that I want to explore. [/quote] Without getting into any arguments, John P. Meier writes : "The Epistle to the Hebrews does mention—as an apparent obstacle to its
