Genesis 49:10 - The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto Him shall the gathering of the people be.

This verse contains a wealth of information. First we see the promise that the sceptre shall not depart from Judah.
The sceptre has long been associated with royalty. Jesus has been called King of kings and Lord of lords. This prophecy says that He will come from the tribe of Judah. By reading the lineage listed in the gospel of Luke, we know this was also fulfilled.
Also, this promises there will be a gathering of the people to Him. Throughout His ministry, we know that Jesus had a large crowd of followers. This number of followers has increased greatly throughout the past 2000 years since His resurrection.
