Jacob Steals the Blessing (3-17-24)

Mar 17, 2024

Although Esau had forsaken the faith of his family and traded his birthright for a bowl of stew, Isaac intended to pass on the family blessing to him as the older son, contrary to what the Lord had told Rebekah before the birth of her twin sons. Through a great deception planned by his mother, Jacob successfully impersonated Esau, fooling his father and receiving the blessing intended for his older brother. In spite of these human failures, the Abrahamic blessing was successfully passed to Jacob, the rightful heir according to God's plan.
