Genesis 27 - Hairy Arms, Stealing Blessings, & the Deception of Israel
Jacob and his mother, Rebekah, team up to intervene in the future of Israel. Esau has made decisions that can't allow the covenant to continue so, with some deceptive tactics, Jacob finds a way to get the blessing. Is Isaac in on the deception? And why does Rebekah play such a prominent role? The story of Israel's future is put on full display in the microcosmic episode that also kicks off the narrative of Jacob, the final patriarch.

Genesis 26 - The Dysfunctional Family of Isaac and Rebekah
The Birth of Esau and Jacob & Isaac's "Sister" RebekahAs the Genesis narrative transitions to Isaac (and quickly moves straight to Jacob), his genealogy includes the story of the birth of his twins; which sets up how the covenant continues through Jacob. Isaac's story revolves around being in Garar with Abimelech (now of the Philistines) where he says Rebekah is his sister. This partly portrays Isaac as a continuation of Abraham and partly leads us to wonder how the covenant will continue through his two sons.
