Judah is NOT the literal second son

Judah [1] is not a literal second son. He is the fourth son of Jacob and Leah, after Reuben [2], Simeon [3], and Levi [4].

Judah the riddle second son

As the fourth son, God plays riddles to make him the second son. Levi was not to be numbered as one of the tribes. [5] And Simeon and Levi would be dispersed. [6] With two of the first three sons out of the way, Judah becomes the second son.

Judah plays the role of he second son as well. The promise and blessing goes through him to Christ.

Judah's Keys

There is a dramatic change in his person with a scene of the cross in the midst. He is a man of the flesh as he deceived Jacob into thinking that Joseph is dead. [7] But then offers himself for his brother Benjamin's life. [8] Between the two events, Judah had been placed in prison by Joseph, as a picture of the cross.
