  1. Isaac and His Sons

  2. The Birth of Jacob & Esau Genesis 25:20-28 • After 19 years of marriage, Isaac prayed God would allow Rebekah to conceive • No child is born without God’s blessing – Psalm 127:3 • When Isaac was 60, Rebekah bore 2 sons • Esau – red haired and hairy, a skillful hunter, Isaac’s favorite • Jacob – “heal grabber” because that was the way he was born, a mild mannered man who dwelt in tents, Rebekah’s favorite

  3. Selling the Birthright Genesis 25:29-34 • The birthright • A double portion went to the firstborn • The promise to Abraham also went with it • Esau showed more regard for his stomach (gratification of physical needs) than God’s blessing • Came in faint with hunger • Traded birthright for stew • Hebrews 12:16

  4. Isaac and Abimelech Genesis 26:1-11 • Isaac went to Gerar in time of famine • Lied about Rebekah because he reasoned they would kill him for her • Abimelech chastised him after he saw them “laughing together” (N.E.B.) because he had endangered any man who might have tried make her his wife • He commanded everyone to leave them alone

  5. Isaac Among the Philistines Genesis 26:12-22 • Because of God’s blessing, Isaac prospered • The Philistines grew jealous • Abimelech asked him to move • Isaac went into the valley • His father had dug wells years before • Herdsmen contested his right to the first well, so he called it Esek, or quarrel • The 2nd contested well was called Sitnah, or enmity • They left the 3rd alone, so he called it Rehoboth, which means spaciousness, because God had made room for him in the land

  6. Isaac at Beersheba Genesis 26:23-33 • Eventually, Isaac moved to Beersheba • The Lord appeared and renewed the promise • Isaac built an altar and worshiped God • Isaac made an agreement with Abimelech • Abimelech and Phichol, his commander, came up to meet him • They wanted to solidify a relationship with one blessed of God • His servants found water and he named it Shebah, or oath, thus the name Beersheba
