Bible Time Period: Patriarchs
In the time of the Patriarchs, you called Abraham and promised his children land, a royal kingdom, and worldwide blessing: Help me to trust in your promises today.
The generations pass, but God’s faithfulness continues even as the blessing he promised to Abraham is passed down. Get a feel as you read for the people of this family that God is rearing. It’s easy to relate to Isaac and Rebekah, Jacob and Esau. The Bible doesn’t whitewash their character but “tells it like it is” as God meets each one where he or she is.
What does chapter 25 tell you about Isaac and Rebekah’s children, even before they boys are born? How does this play out as the story goes on?
