However, there was one who later came and entered her pain and shame. Jesus Christ was killed, not for revenge but to bear her shame on the cross and to offer her a new robe of righteousness to replace her torn robes of disgrace. How Tamar felt after the assault, described in verse 19 [2 Sam. 13], is shockingly similar to what Jesus experienced leading up to and during his crucifixion [Mt. 27:45-46]. Jesus entered her pain and shame as Tamar’s substitute to remove the stain of sins committed against her, and he rose from the dead to bring her healing and hope. Holcomb, Rid of My Disgrace, p. 21.
