Slide 1

Isaac was forty years old when he married Rebekah. Twenty years passed by and Isaac prayed to the Lord as his wife was childless. – Slide 1

Slide 2

The Lord answered his prayer, and Rebekah became pregnant. She felt a lot of movement in her womb and asked God, ‘Why is this happening to me?’ – Slide 2

Slide 3

The Lord replied, ‘Two separate nations are in your womb; one people will be stronger than the other, and the elder will serve the younger.’ – Slide 3

Slide 4

When the time came for her to give birth, she had twin boys. The first to come out was red, and his whole body was hairy, so they named him Esau. – Slide 4

Slide 5

After this, his brother came out, with his hand grasping Esau’s heel. He was named Jacob. Esau, as the firstborn, would get the birthright that God had promised to Abraham. – Slide 5

Slide 6

The boys grew up, and Esau became a skillful hunter who loved to be in the open country, while Jacob was content to stay at home among the tents. – Slide 6

Slide 7

Isaac, who had a taste for wild game, loved Esau, but Rebekah loved Jacob. – Slide 7

Slide 8

One day Esau set out on a long hunting trip. – Slide 8

Slide 9

Esau remained at home and cooked a lentil stew. – Slide 9

Slide 10

Esau arrived hungry and exhausted from his hunting trip. ‘Quick, let me have some of that red stew! I’m famished!’ he asked Jacob. – Slide 10

Slide 11

Jacob replied, ‘First sell me your birthright.’ – Slide 11

Slide 12

 ‘Look, I am about to die,’ Esau said. ‘What good is the birthright to me?’ Jacob said, ‘Swear to me first that you will sell me your birthright.’ – Slide 12

Slide 13

So he swore an oath to him, selling his birthright to Jacob. – Slide 13

Slide 14

Jacob gave Esau some bread and some lentil stew. He ate and drank, and then got up and left. So Esau despised his birthright. He did not care about God’s promise to make a great nation from his descendants, one of whom would be the Saviour of the world. – Slide 14
