Jacob and Esau | Genesis 27-28

big picture question: does God keep His promises?

CHRIST CONNECTION: The promises for Abraham and Isaac also become the promises for Jacob.  At Bethe, God showed that His plan was to continue the covenant through Jacob’s family and eventually a whole nation, leading to the birth of Jesus-the promised Savior.
