Yesterday, we read about the fallout from Jacob’s schemes on his father. He had tricked him out of the blessing Isaac was going to give his brother, Esau. So, Jacob was sent east to his relatives in Paddan-Aram to find a wife but also to protect him from the wrath of his brother Esau. On his way, Jacob had a dream about a stairway to heaven and God appeared to him at the top of the stairs. He promised Jacob the land he was lying on and descendants as numerous as the stars. Let’s see what happens next in Genesis chapter 29.
1. What other husband and wife met at a well? Why do you think the author has two stories with the same setting?
2. How does this story point you to Jesus?
3. Does this story remind you of anything in your own life? Did you relate to any of the characters?
