Just Announced: Philippians Sermon Series

Summary: This is a study of the book of Genesis. Genesis and Revelation are two of the most disputed books in the Bible. The premise of this study is the foundation of creation.

Note: When doing a study on a book in the Bible you use a lot of resources. The major influence for me on this study of Genesis is The Genesis Record by Henry Morris.

Title: Jacob at Bethel

Jesus made a reference to Jacobs ladder that we read of in chapter 28. Where was this recorded in the New Testament?

John 1:51-AV And he saith unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto

you, Hereafter ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of God

ascending and descending upon the Son of man.

Geneva Bible

28:12 And he dreamed, and behold a {d} ladder set up on the

earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the

angels of God ascending and descending on it.

(d) Christ is the ladder by which God and man are joined

together, and by whom the angels minister to us: all

graces are given to us by him, and we ascend to heaven

by him.

Peoples New Testament

"#Jo 1:51"

"The angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man".

Jacob, old Israel, in his dream at Bethel, saw the ladder that reached

to heaven with the angels upon it ("#Ge 28:12"). Christ is that ladder,

the way from earth to heaven, the way heaven sends messages to the

world and the way we must go to reach it. Nathanael would be permitted

to see that Jesus was the Mediator, that through him the Father speaks

to man; that through him there is intercommunication between earth and


41. And Esau hated Jacob because of the blessing wherewith his

father blessed him: and Esau said in his heart, The days of

mourning for my father are at hand; then will I slay my brother


Esau was hoping that his father would die soon and he would have a chance to kill his brother.

42 And these words of Esau her elder son were told to Rebekah:

and she sent and called Jacob her younger son, and said unto him,

Behold, thy brother Esau, as touching thee, doth comfort himself,

[purposing] to kill thee.

Here goes the plotting again.

43 Now therefore, my son, obey my voice; and arise, flee thou

to Laban my brother to Haran;

44 And tarry with him a few days, until thy brother's fury turn


45 Until thy brother's anger turn away from thee, and he forget

[that] which thou hast done to him: then I will send, and fetch

thee from thence: why should I be deprived also of you both in

one day?

She has figured out a way to save her son. And remember her favorite son. Unknowing to her in saving him she herself also lost him. After he leaves he would not return for 20yrs and during this time Rebekah dies. Who is Laban to Rebekah?

46 And Rebekah said to Isaac, I am weary of my life because of

the daughters of Heth: if Jacob take a wife of the daughters of

Heth, such as these [which are] of the daughters of the land,

what good shall my life do me?

She now involves Isaac in her plot. She finds away for Jacob to agree with her plan. She convinces him that it would be a great idea.

Genesis 28:1. And Isaac called Jacob, and blessed him, and charged him, and

said unto him, Thou shalt not take a wife of the daughters of


Isaac her is telling Jacob of a truth that has been known all though out scripture. No not marry of the sinners. Be ye separate. What is wrong with a Christian and a non-Christian marring?

2 Corinthians 6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for

what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what

communion hath light with darkness?

2 Arise, go to Padanaram, to the house of Bethuel thy mother's

father; and take thee a wife from thence of the daughters of

Laban thy mother's brother.

3 And God Almighty bless thee, and make thee fruitful, and

multiply thee, that thou mayest be a multitude of people;

4 And give thee the blessing of Abraham, to thee, and to thy

seed with thee; that thou mayest inherit the land wherein thou

art a stranger, which God gave unto Abraham.

What is odd about these verses? Didn't earlier Isaac get mad because he was deceived by Jacob? Wasn't Isaac wanting to bless Esau with these same blessings that he just blessed Jacob? Now he is telling of God's blessings.

Galatians 3:14 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles

through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the

Spirit through faith.

5 And Isaac sent away Jacob: and he went to Padanaram unto

Laban, son of Bethuel the Syrian, the brother of Rebekah, Jacob's
