Genesis 33

Main idea
Jacob meets Esau and delicately parts from him again.
He buys a piece of land from a Canaanite named Hamor.

How is this about Jesus
Jesus like Jacob came to his own land and people and had to tread carefully to avoid problems.  Jacob couldnt fully avoid them because of his sin.  Jesus doesn't avoid them because He bears our sin.

Sins this may reveal
Willingness to compromise with those living out of Gods ways (Esau).
Overly separated from unbelievers (Hamor).
Jacob avoids both of these.
