It may surprise you to learn that all of Judah’s recorded children had African blood, including the chosen son Pharez. Pharez was Judah’s son that was conceived with his daughter in law Tamar, a Canaanite woman.
“And Tamar his daughter in law bare him Pharez and Zerah. All the sons of Judah were five.” – 1 Chronicles 2:4
As we follow the bloodline of Pharez, we learn that it is his line that eventually leads to the births of David and Solomon.
“Now these are the generations of Pharez: Pharez begat Hezron, And Hezron begat Ram, and Ram begat Amminadab, And Amminadab begat Nahshon, and Nahshon begat Salmon, And Salmon begat Boaz, and Boaz begat Obed, And Obed begat Jesse, and Jesse begat David.” – Ruth 4:18-22
