Day Eight - 90 Day Bible Reading Challenge - Genesis 29-32 - The Great Adventure A Journey Through the Bible

Day Eight 
Genesis 29-32 
By Sarah Christmyer 

Bible Time Period:  Patriarchs 
In the time of the Patriarchs, you called Abraham and promised his children land, a royal kingdom, and worldwide blessing:  Help me to trust in your promises today.

Today’s readings cover a lot of ground:  Jacob is married and has children, outwits his father-in-law before getting out of town, prepares to meet the brother he tricked out of the blessing, and gets caught up in an all-night wrestling match with God.
From now on, Jacob (“deceiver” or “he grasps”) will also be known as “Israel” (“he struggles with God”). The one who grasped with his own power birthright and blessing had learned to struggle with God and be blessed.  The nation that comes to bear his name will exhibit the characteristics of both of these names.

Today's Reading 
Genesis 29 - 32 

Today's Question

How does Jacob get back what he dished out to his brother Esau?
