Day 9

Genesis 27-29

Chapter 27

jacob blessingThe story of how Jacob deceived Isaac always bothered me – I guess it’s that hair thing again. I realize the guy was supposed to be feeble and blind, but seriously would anyone who was even conscious be taken in by goat skin stuck on Jacob’s hands and neck? Unless it was professionally applied by a make-up artist – which I kind of doubt. Even as a kid, this story struck me as a tall tale.

 

Chapter 28

Back to the family values – polygamy rules (28:9).

Chapter 29

Another ruse that I never quite bought into. Jacob has sex with Leah instead of Rachel and doesn’t realize it until morning? C’mon…. Tall tale.
