The Scepter of Judah

The Scepter of Judah…

In Genesis 49:10, the prophecy goes, “The scepter shall not depart from Judah until Shiloh comes.” The rabbis interpret Shiloh to mean the Jesus. Later on, they explain it to mean the power over life and death, particularly of capital punishment.

Well, in the Babylonian Talmud, it says this, “The Sanhedrin found themselves deprived over the right of life and death and they covered their heads with ashes and said, “Woe to us for the scepter has departed from Judah and Jesus has not come.”

When did that happen? The book in the Talmud, Sanhedrin 41A says, it happened 40 years before the destruction of the Temple. Do you know what that means? The Temple was destroyed in 70 AD, minus 40 years, it means 30 AD.

So, according to the Talmud, the scepter departed in the year 30 AD. That means Jesus had to have come by the year 30 AD. Well, guess what happened in the year 30 AD or just about? Jesus died and rose; He took the scepter of Judah. He came, even the Talmud bears witness!

That he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, 1 Corinthians 15:4

All things bear witness to His glory, and His promises are true. Tell all who will listen that the Jesus has come for each and every one of us by name.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,
