Lesson  October 27, 2013
The Blessing Passes to JacobGenesis 27, 28; 32:22-30; 35:9-15By Sam E. Stone Last week’s lesson concluded with Isaac becoming extremely prosperous (Genesis 26:13). He and his family moved south toward Beersheba, where his father Abraham had lived. Genesis 27 describes how Jacob tricked his father into giving him the special blessing that normally would have gone to his elder brother, Esau (27:1-40). When Esau learned of Jacob’s deception he cried, “Isn’t he rightly named Jacob? He has deceived me these two times: He took my birthright, and now he’s taken my blessing!” (v. 36). Esau planned to kill him after his father died. When his mother, Rebekah, learned of this, she urged Jacob to go to her brother Laban in Haran and live there until Esau’s anger subsided. She urged Isaac to send Jacob on this trip since he needed to find a wife who believed in the one God—not one of the pagan Canaanite women nearby.

Connect the Testaments: A Daily Devotional

October 27  Dreams of RedemptionDaniel 4:1–37 I've known people who seemed beyond saving—who seemed to have gone too far down the wrong path to ever turn to the right one. But in the Bible we see that this is not the case. God is capable of turning anyone’s heart. One of the most shocking examples is Nebuchadnezzar.
In a decree to all the nations he rules (and perhaps other nations as well), Nebuchadnezzar remarks: “It is pleasing to me to recount the signs and wonders that the Most High God worked for me. How great are his signs and wonders, how strong is his kingdom, an everlasting kingdom; and his sovereignty is from generation to generation” (Dan 4:2–3). He then goes on to recount a dream that Yahweh planted in his mind.
Before Nebuchadnezzar experiences redemption, he tastes humiliation and endures great trials (Dan 4:28–33). But Yahweh does not intend to merely humble the king—He intends to make him a righteous man who can be used for His good purposes. We don't know whet…
