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.
