We've now learned about Reuben, Simeon, and Ephraim from the Twelve Tribes of Israel.

Another of the twelve was Judah.

Judah was one of the sons of Jacob and Leah. When the sons of Jacob were jealous of his son Joseph and wanted to kill Joseph, Judah was the one who stopped them from killing him and said they should just sell Joseph instead of killing him.

Judah was the Great great great great great great great great grandfather of King David, and David was the Great (times 24) grandfather of Jesus.
So sometimes Jesus is called the "Lion of Judah" because he came from the tribe of Judah.
