"A TALE OF TWO BOYS"

Genesis 25:19-34

God's promise is passed on through the children of Isaac and Rebekah.

Esau and Jacob were certainly not identical twins.

The Lord Himself prophesies a reversal of the norm.

"The lads grew, Esau became a skillful hunter, a man of the open fields, while Jacob was a quiet man, living in tents."  Genesis 25:27

The birthright is traded.

  • Esau's folly and Jacob's trickery are exposed.

What in the world was God thinking?

  • Where in the world is the person who reflects the wisdom and grace of God?

Maybe God is confident of transforming any of us into Godly people.
