Project 4:4--Day Eleven

Just a couple of observations from today's reading of Genesis 25-26:

It's interesting to get a little bit of a glimpse of Jacob's character (or lack thereof) as he forces his starving older brother to sell him the birthright for some food.

I never realized how much of Isaac's life was just like his father's...the famine, the traveling, the lies, God's blessing, the quarrelling over the wells...

It's a little like deja vu, to read through this account of Isaac's life and read about all the same things that happened to Abraham happening to Isaac.
