Today, I discuss Genesis 36 and Edom as Israel’s twin.
This transcription of the sixth part of my series on the story of the family of Abraham was transcribed by Lorraine O’Neal. If you would be interested in her transcription services—for sermons, lectures, talks, or something else—you can contact her here.
I would very much like to provide transcripts for all of my videos, but I will require more support for this to be affordable. If you would like to help to make this possible, please consider supporting or donating using my Patreon or PayPal accounts. New sponsorship and donations are being earmarked for this specific purpose.
Today, I discuss Genesis 26, in which Isaac consolidates the legacy of his father, Abraham.
The story of Hagar found in Genesis 16 reminds me of the Samaritan woman in John 4. Both accounts involve a woman who is (in some sense) cast out from the Abrahamic community. She is met by God in visible form at a spring/well, and responds by praising his seeing/knowledge about her life. Has anyone else commented on this parallel before, or is it a bit too “fanciful” to be helpful?
