  1. Chapter 25 Chapter 25 Enabling Overcoming Desiring

  2. Chapter 25 • 1Abraham took another wife, whose name was Keturah. 2She bore him Zimran, Jokshan, Medan, Midian, Ishbak and Shuah. 3Jokshan was the father of Sheba and Dedan; the descendants of Dedan were the Asshurites, the Letushites and the Leummites. 4The sons of Midian were Ephah, Epher, Hanoch, Abida and Eldaah. All these were descendants of Keturah. • We are uncertain of the chronology of this. Perhaps Keturah came along while Sarah was still living. Chronology is not the concern, here, but rather the family tree. • Keturah had second-class wife status like Hagar did.

  3. Chapter 25 1Abraham took another wife, whose name was Keturah. 2She bore him Zimran, Jokshan, Medan, Midian, Ishbak and Shuah. 3Jokshan was the father of Sheba and Dedan; the descendants of Dedan were the Asshurites, the Letushites and the Leummites. 4The sons of Midian were Ephah, Epher, Hanoch, Abida and Eldaah. All these were descendants of Keturah. 5Abraham left everything he owned to Isaac. 6But while he was still living, he gave gifts to the sons of his concubines and sent them away from his son Isaac to the land of the east. All the marbles are with Isaac. Abraham trusts God in this.

  4. Chapter 25 7Altogether, Abraham lived a hundred and seventy-five years.8Then Abraham breathed his last and died at a good old age, an old man and full of years; and he was gathered to his people. 9His sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in the cave of Machpelah near Mamre, in the field of Ephron son of Zohar the Hittite, 10the field Abraham had bought from the Hittites. There Abraham was buried with his wife Sarah. 11After Abraham’s death, God blessed his son Isaac, who then lived near Beer LahaiRoi. Live like you want to end up.

  19. Chapter 25 24When the time came for her to give birth, there were twin boys in her womb. 25The first to come out was red, and his whole body was like a hairy garment; so they named him Esau. 26After this, his brother came out, with his hand grasping Esau’s heel; so he was named Jacob. Isaac was sixty years old when Rebekah gave birth to them.

  20. Chapter 25 27The boys grew up, and Esau became a skillful hunter, a man of the open country, while Jacob was a quiet man, staying among the tents. 28Isaac, who had a taste for wild game, loved Esau, but Rebekah loved Jacob. Macho man versus the mama’s boy. Do not model parenting on this . . .

  21. Chapter 25 • 29Once when Jacob was cooking some stew, Esau came in from the open country, famished. 30He said to Jacob, “Quick, let me have some of that red stew! I’m famished!” (That is why he was also called Edom.) • 31Jacob replied, “First sell me your birthright.” • ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ • In raising the boys for their “destinies, Isaac would emphasize the birth order, Rebekah the prophecy. • Jacob values what Esau has by birthright. He probably understands that he would end up with it anyway. • He seeks to steal what was promised . . . • Esau the hunter, would not worry about the runt taking • anything from him.

  22. Chapter 25 • 29Once when Jacob was cooking some stew, Esau came in from the open country, famished. 30He said to Jacob, “Quick, let me have some of that red stew! I’m famished!” (That is why he was also called Edom.) • 31Jacob replied, “First sell me your birthright.” • 32“Look, I am about to die,” Esau said. “What good is the birthright to me?” • ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ • Would Esau take this seriously? • He could just beat it out of Jacob later and get it back. • This is not a life and death matter, but it becomes one. • (If he could say that he was about to die, he wasn’t.)

  23. Chapter 25 • 29Once when Jacob was cooking some stew, Esau came in from the open country, famished. 30He said to Jacob, “Quick, let me have some of that red stew! I’m famished!” (That is why he was also called Edom.) • 31Jacob replied, “First sell me your birthright.” • 32“Look, I am about to die,” Esau said. “What good is the birthright to me?” • 33But Jacob said, “Swear to me first.” So he swore an oath to him, selling his birthright to Jacob. • 34Then Jacob gave Esau some bread and some lentil stew. He ate and drank, and then got up and left. • ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ • Again, I doubt that Esau was taking this seriously, but some things you just don’t play with. • This action shows low regard for the gift of God and probably extreme self-confidence.

He ate and drank, and then got up and left. • So Esau despised his birthright. • ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ • He treats the gift of God, his by birth order, as something trivial, which is a huge insult to God.

Massive mistake! But we do this all the time! It started in Eden.

Massive mistake! Rejecting Christ or worse, apathy toward him.

  27. Chapter 25 • Applications: • Live now with being old and full of good years in view. • Live out God’s esteem of you. The great paradox. • We had a destiny. • By his grace, he has a Plan that overrules it. • We are pathetically unqualified. • In Christ, we have been qualified. • We have no ability to bring to God. • By his Spirit, he enables us • Ephesians 2:1-10

  28. Chapter 25 • Applications: • Live now with being old and full of good years in view. • Live out God’s esteem of you. The great paradox. • Honor him in all situations, trusting him for the Good. • What is my purpose?

  29. Chapter 25 • Applications: • Live now with being old and full of good years in view. • Live out God’s esteem of you. The great paradox. • Honor him in all situations, trusting him for the Good. • Value the Gift above all! • Everything finds definition and completeness in this.
