As students of the Bible, I hope that we have made the connections and seen the similarities between Judah and our Lord. James Smith reminds us, “God has undertaken your cause; He has engaged for you, He has bound Himself by oath to you. He is a Surety for you, for your good. The covenant is ordered in all things and sure; it includes all time, it provides for all circumstances, it anticipates all events, it engages for all possibilities. Jesus is the Surety of that covenant; He undertook to see it fulfilled in all its parts; He engaged for the accomplishment of all its conditions, for the performance of all its promises; He was bound to see its design carried out. Can He fail? Impossible! Will His word be violated? Hear Him: “Heaven and earth shall pass away — but my word shall never pass away.” He is Surety for all the children, for every Benjamin who goes down into Egypt; and He has said of each one to His Father, “I will be surety for him; You may hold me responsible if I don’t bring him back to you. Then let me bear the blame forever.” And in reference to our misconduct and sins against the law and government of the great Ruler of the universe, He says of everyone, “if he has wronged you, or owes you anything — charge that on my account; I will repay it!”
