Jacob Returns to Canaan

Answers Bible Curriculum Second Edition Unit 5 Lesson 44

This week in Sunday school, we take one more look at the life of Jacob and witness Jacob’s return to Canaan. This event is one of the peaks of the narrative of Genesis but also leads us to several important questions: How had Jacob changed since fleeing from Esau? What is the significance of Jacob wrestling with God and of God changing Jacob’s name? And what caused Esau to reconcile with Jacob? As we explore the answer to these questions, we’ll learn more about our God’s covenant love and why we should trust Him.

Our main text for the lesson is Genesis 32:1-33:20.
