Slide 1

This story is found in Genesis, the very the first book of the Bible. – Slide 1

Slide 2

Jacob had two wives, sisters Leah and Rachel. Rachel was his favourite, but she had no children. Leah and Jacob had four boys, Reuben, Simeon, Levi and Judah. – Slide 2

Slide 3

Rachel was jealous of Leah’s children.  She had an idea. She took her maid Bilhah to her husband and said, ‘Bilhah can have my children for me.’ – Slide 3

Slide 4

Rachel’s maid Bilhah and Jacob had two sons, Dan and Naphtali. When Rachel saw how much Jacob loved his sons she felt very sad. She prayed to God for a child of her own. – Slide 4

Slide 5

But Leah wanted to be Jacob’s favourite wife, so she gave her maid Zilpah to Jacob. Jacob and Zilpah had two sons, Gad and Asher, which upset Rachel even more. – Slide 5

Slide 6

Leah and Jacob had two more boys, Issachar, Zebulon and a daughter named Dinah. Jacob really loved his children. Poor Rachel still had no child of her own. – Slide 6

Slide 7

Then at last Rachel and Jacob had a baby boy. Jacob called him Joseph. God had answered Rachel's prayers. Joseph was the son who inherited God’s promises. – Slide 7

Slide 8

Rachel was sick when her last son was born. She handed the baby to Jacob and died. Jacob called him Benjamin. Altogether Jacob had twelve sons and one daughter. – Slide 8
