Jacob’s Deception

International Sunday School November 11, 2018 

Now Rebekah was listening when Isaac spoke to his son Esau. So when Esau went to the field to hunt for game and bring it, (6) Rebekah said to her son Jacob, “I heard your father speak to your brother Esau, (7) ‘Bring me game and prepare for me delicious food, that I may eat it and bless you before the LORD before I die.’ (8) Now therefore, my son, obey my voice as I command you. (9) Go to the flock and bring me two good young goats, so that I may prepare from them delicious food for your father, such as he loves. (10) And you shall bring it to your father to eat, so that he may bless you before he dies.”


Genesis 27:5-10 

So he went in to his father and said, “My father.” And he said, “Here I am. Who are you, my son?” (19) Jacob said to his father, “I am Esau your firstborn. I have done as you told me; now sit up and eat of my game, that your soul may bless me.”


Genesis 27:18-19 

Then Isaac said to Jacob, “Please come near, that I may feel you, my son, to know whether you are really my son Esau or not.” (22) So Jacob went near to Isaac his father, who felt him and said, “The voice is Jacob’s voice, but the hands are the hands of Esau.” (23) And he did not recognize him, because his hands were hairy like his brother Esau’s hands. So he blessed him. (24) He said, “Are you really my son Esau?” He answered, “I am.” (25) Then he said, “Bring it near to me, that I may eat of my son’s game and bless you.” So he brought it near to him, and he ate; and he brought him wine, and he drank. (26) Then his father Isaac said to him, “Come near and kiss me, my son.” (27) So he came near and kissed him. And Isaac smelled the smell of his garments and blessed him and said, “See, the smell of my son is as the smell of a field that the LORD has blessed! (28) May God give you of the dew of heaven and of the fatness of the earth and plenty of grain and wine. (29) Let peoples serve you, and nations bow down to you. Be lord over your brothers, and may your mother’s sons bow down to you. Cursed be everyone who curses you, and blessed be everyone who blesses you!”
