Genesis 27-28, John 11
I am a few days behind. Trying to catch up. Not sure this will come out right. In Genesis with Jacob and Esau since Jacob already had the birthright shouldn’t he have gotten the first blessing anyways? It kinda was Jacobs from the beginning anyways…Or are those two different things..
You’re right! Because Esau “despised” his birthright, by giving it to his brother he gave him the blessing as well. It would be Esau’s birthright to be blessed because he was born first, and as is tradition it was meant to be the firstborn son who received his father’s blessing, like Isaac did because he was the firstborn of Sarah. Just that Esau was Isaac’s favourite, he was going to bless him, but rightfully since it was sold to Jacob, he should have always received it.
At the risk of sounding stupid but is this Mary, Jesus’ mother? If so, why do they seem so formal. It doesn’t seem as if he has been reunited with his mother.
Hey Ashley! Not a stupid question at all. This is not Jesus’ mother Mary. This is Mary the sister of Martha—the one who cleaned Jesus feet with her tears and expensive perfume.
“How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God, and it is the gate of heaven.”
