Session 9: The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob

Emmaus to New Jerusalem session 8 sq.jpg

Jacob was a man who wrestled with God and received a name change to reflect that. He wasn't always a man who deserved God's blessings, showing us that righteousness doesn't mean we have to be perfect to be in covenant with God. Pastor Alan explains the difference between Jacob and Esau, and how one despised his birthright as the other took it and ran. In this session, we'll hear how the blessing and the birthright are central to understanding covenant and covenant history.
