Genesis 27

Main idea
Jacob steals the blessing from Isaac meant for Esau, at Rebekah's direction!  Talk about a dysfunctional family.  Esau plans to kill Jacob, and Rebekah plans to send him to her family back in Nahor.

How is this about Jesus?
Caiaphas meant to save Israel by condemning Jesus, but he winds up blessing the One God meant all along to bless.

Sins this passage may reveal:
Favoring and blessing children for emotional reasons, when they need correction (Jacob).
Trying to fix things in a passive aggressive way, instead of dealing straight with people (Rebekah).
