Questions #107---126

By Joyce Webb 2010

 

107. What did God tell Rebekah about the babies inside her? Gen. 25: 23

108. Tell how the boys are different from each other. Gen. 25: 24,

Gen. 25:27-28

109. Who was Rebekah's favorite? Gen 25:28

110. Esau was out hunting. When he came home, he was very hungry. Jacob was cooking food. Esau wanted some food. Jacob, as a brother, could have given him something to eat. But he did not.

Jacob said he would "sell" or "trade" food if Esau would do what? Gen. 25:29

111. Esau may have thought that Jacob was just joking. So he said, _________ (yes, no)? But Jacob meant it.

The birthright in those days was the legal right to have a double part of the father's riches when the father died. All of the sons got some of the riches, but the oldest son got twice or double what the others got.

The oldest son also got the birthright blessing. He was made the leader of the family or tribe.

That Esau would "trade" or "sell" this for some food is foolish. Esau must have thought that Jacob was joking, or Esau did not respect the blessings of the oldest son.

Esau said that he was about to die from hunger so what good would the blessings do him. It is not likely that Esau would have died from hunger. He was back home. Surely someone would have given him something to eat.

It seems that Esau did not take serious his birthright blessing.

Many people do not think serious about the spiritual blessings that God has for those who will obey and follow Him. They choose things of this world that make them happy and feel good ----rather than God's promised blessing for the future.

Jacob was serious about these blessings. He wanted them. He was not being nice to get them from Esau in this way. But Esau should have said, "No!"

113. Isaac is now old. He knows he will not live much longer. He is ready to give the birthright blessing to Esau. Isaac does not know about the "deal" that Esau and Jacob made long time ago. It seems that Esau does not think about it.
