Jacob: Rich Man, Poor Man, Beggar Man, Thief

Sabbaths, September 21 - November 16

 

Jacob’s name appears repeatedly in the Bible, often in the esteemed trilogy of names: “Abraham, Isaac and Jacob…” His story is integral to the unfolding work of God in salvation history. He was father of the twelve patriarchs. His overall story spans almost half of the book of Genesis. His descendants became a nation called by his new name—Israel. If being remembered and regarded is a marker of success, then Jacob, of all people, was an astonishing success. Except that Jacob was a shyster. But what’s distressing is that as I read the story of Jacob, it seems that the choices he made aren’t all that different from the choices that I, facing the same circumstances, might have made. Which creates true interest in knowing more about Jacob in our series “Jacob: Rich Man, Poor Man, Beggar, Man, Thief” from September 21 – November 16.
