Notes: Genesis 27-28:9, Job 16-17

Genesis 27-28:9Job 16-17

Bible Narrative Project

First Jacob takes Esau’s birthright, now he takes his blessing. Things happen twice a lot, have you noticed? Pretty soon Jacob will find his Rachel almost like Isaac found his Rebekah…it’s kind of like tapestry. Esau marries an Ishmaelite woman out of spite, and later Joseph (Jacob’s son with Rachel) will be sold to some Ishmaelites from Midian, who will sell him in Egypt…and later Moses will flee Egypt to Midian and marry there. The “Ishmael” aspect makes me think of Islam again (and now Moby Dick).

“I could strengthen you with my mouth, And the solace of my lips could lessen your pain.” – Job
