Tamar was the Canaanite daughter-in-law of Judah whose husband was put to death. After Judah’s son passed away, Judah neglected a command found in the Mosaic law and failed to provide a husband with whom Tamar could have a child. To have a child through her deceased husband’s family line, Tamar dressed as a prostitute and slept with Judah, which led to twin sons.
