Esau: The Son Who Couldn’t Win


From: £1.50


Genesis 25:20–34; 26:34–35; 27:5–46; 28:1–9

Tucked away in the Old Testament are stories that have held the attention of Bible readers for centuries. Some intrigue us and others encourage us. There are stories of heroism and incredible accomplishments along with stories of disappointment, sadness, and tragedy. If ever a book contained a human-interest emphasis, the Bible rates at the top. As we uncover some of those stories in this series, we find one about a young man who seemed born to lose. Though a twin, he was quite the opposite of his younger brother and ultimately became the heartache of the family. Ripped off by his brother and rejected by his family, he couldn’t win, no matter how hard he tried. As we shall soon discover, the Bible pulls no punches. You may find several places where you can identify with “The Son Who Couldn’t Win.”
