Imagine this. Jacob does everything in his power to trick his father he was Esau, so that his father would bless him with the birth right and it actually works! He gets the blessing, he gets to carry on the lineage of Abraham! THE FATHER ABRAHAM!! But it doesn't come without a cost, only because he decides to be shady and shidty, he has to leave his mother and father's home because his brother Esau is out to get him, LITERALLY. He actually say that, "When I see him, I'm going to kill him." I paraphrase, but you get the point. So he goes into the wilderness has this dream about gates in ladders that kind of tells the whole future of mankin (but who knew that then?) to end up at Laban's house. When he gets to Laban's town he lays eyes on the most beautiful woman he has ever seen and decides that'g going to be his wife, only to find out that her dad, (his uncle) is an even bigger trickster than he is.... Buckle up this is Bible School!!
