Dr. Danny Campbell
This young convert was deeply impressed and determined to make these the rules of his life. From that day onward throughout his life he made it a rule to spend the first moments of his day alone with God and God's Word. Before he read a letter, looked at a paper or even read a telegram, he went first to the Bible, that the first impression of the day might be what he got directly from God.

Genesis Chapter 38
What 3 things were promised to Abraham, then confirmed to Isaac and Jacob?
What are the Three Features of the Abrahamic Covenant:
In Genesis 37 we saw Joseph’s brothers sell him into slavery, with Judah taking on a key role in that sin. In today’s passage, we see yet another sinful incident that Judah is involved in.
Judah’s sons act wickedly V. 1-11
Judah ___________________ a sinful mistake that his uncle Esau had made – intermarrying with those of another religion.
In verse 7 we see one of the great themes of the Bible – that God will __________ sin.
We have a fourth generation practicing ___________________ – Abraham had, Isaac’s wife Rebekah had, Jacob and his wives, the brothers had with Joseph, now Judah does with his daughter-in-law.
Tamar gets her babies V. 12-30
Judah is man enough to acknowledge the evident truth. He drops the idea of killing her and his unborn children, and never touches her sexually again.
What a ___________________ to God’s grace – the child born of prostitution and incest would be in the line of King David, and King Jesus!
Reuben, Simeon, and Levi are all going to be cursed by Jacob for their wicked behavior. Why then Is Judah going to be blessed, when he has been shown in chapters 37-38 to be involved in some real bad sin?
