Preview Talk: 
$ 5.50

Chapter 38 is as an interlude in the story of Joseph. It brings up a story concerning Judah and his daughter-in-law Tamar who is in the lineage of Christ as recorded in the first chapter of the Gospel of St. Matthew.

Why?

Some commentators think that this was story was inserted here by a later copyist. Others explain it based on several different sources.

Even if this is the case, it still begs the question why here? why now?

After all, the copyist could have decided to insert this text somewhere else.

Why here?

Why is it inserted right after the beginnings of the story of Joseph?

Think about it and then you might be tempted to listen to this talk...
