For next week you’re reading Genesis 20 to 31. Answerthe following:
What does Isaac’s name mean? Why is thatappropriate?
Some say that Genesis 22 should be titled “thesacrifice of Isaac,” and others say that it shouldnot be considered a “sacrifice” but call it “thebinding of Isaac”. Do you think it was a sacrifice?
How does Isaac meet Rebekah?
Genesis 25-26 are the only chapters in which all of the “patriarchs” of Israel (Abraham, Isaac, Jacob)are alive together. How do they seem similar ordifferent from each other?
 Jacob’s tricks seemed like they might have beentaught to him by whom?
Love stories are about lovers overcomingchallenges that would keep them apart. What do Jacob and Rachel overcome?
What is the relationship between sisters Racheland Leah like?
Why does Jacob want to leave Laban?
The Patriarchs of Israel
When God appears to Moses in the burning bush, Hedescribes Himself as “the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob,” a designation that will stay with God throughouthistory.While God works through His own power and might, Heoften identifies Himself in the world through those whofollow Him. He says to Moses, “I am the God of thesepeople who are your forefathers.” He says to Paul onthe road to Damascus, “I am the one whom You arepersecuting [by persecuting my followers].” Throughout history, God has established a link betweenHimself and His people. Even today in the Christianchurch, that link remains strong. We do not, like thePharisees, rely on the link between ourselves andsomeone like Abraham (for God could raise up childrenfor Himself from the stones), but we do recognize thatGod’s presence is often seen very clearly in His actionsin those whom we know.How are you functioning as a “patriarch” and showingGod’s presence in your life to the benefit of others whowill follow in your footsteps?
