Jacob was the younger son of Isaac and twin brother of Esau. God changed this deceiver’s name to Israel, and he inherited the promises made to his father and grandfather. The descendants of Jacob’s twelve sons became known as the tribes of Israel, with each tribe bearing the name of one of Jacob’s sons or grandsons.
