Jacob and Esau, Sunday School Lesson December 5, 2010

And the older shall serve the younger.  Jacob I have loved, but Esau I have hated.  Twins.  Born to Isaac and Rebecca.  One became the father of the people of God.  The other many nations that surrounded his younger brother.  One of the great themes of Scripture is birthed in this story — the last shall be first, and the first last;  the proud will be brought low and the low exalted.  These themes deal with the Word of God and its effect on its hearers.  Esau rejected the birthright, and sold it for a mess of pottage, thereby ignoring the promise of God to his Grandfather Abraham.  Listen to Deaconess Pam Nielsen from Concordia Publishing House talk about this week’s Sunday School Lesson here on Issues, Etc.
