Jacob Steals the Blessing

Answers Bible Curriculum Second Edition Unit 5 Lesson 42

This week in Sunday school we look at the next big event in the life of Jacob: his stealing of the blessing from Esau. Why did Isaac try to give the blessing to Esau and not Jacob? What was so significant about the blessing? And what does this account reveal about God’s sovereignty and our own frequent temptation to take matters into our own hands?

Our main text for the lesson is Genesis 27:1-46.
