Hello! I’m getting married this month so no blogs will be happening for the next few weeks. Please feel free to come to the blog and see the show notes and verses each week though! Also, Susan would like to hear any questions you have. In the coming months, we will try to have an additional segment where we discuss and try to answer what other questions listeners leave for us. So if that’s you, make sure to leave a comment on the blog below.
The Journey of Consequences…
|Jacob + Esau||Jacob sells food (stew) for birthright||Jacob sold to Leah for food (mandrakes) for a chance to give birth||Rachel + Leah|
|Jacob + Isaac||Jacob charades as Esau, tricking Isaac||Leah charades as Rachel, tricking Jacob||Jacob + Laban|
|Jacob + Esau||Jacob steals what he wants (blessing)||Jacob must work for free for what he wants (Rachel)||Jacob + Laban|
|Jacob + Esau||Jacob flees out of fear for Esau||Jacob must face his fear and seek forgiveness||Jacob + Esau|
|Jacob + God||Jacob doesn’t trust God to provide promise that he is the chosen twin||Jacob must work for 20 years for Laban who can’t be trusted.||Jacob + Laban|
