Jacob’s Blessings

July 19, 2016

Jacob’s Blessings One classic feature of comic books is that the superhero always has an arch enemy, a nemesis who presents a constant challenge. Time and again the plots of such stories are driven by the tension and suspense produced by these two characters vying for the upper hand. If Jacob is the main protagonist in today’s reading, Laban...

Jacob: Impetuous Actions

January 10, 2013

Jacob: Impetuous Actions Yogi Berra was known for his quips and malapropisms, including this favorite: “It’s déjà vu, all over again.” We might feel like Yogi Berra if we compare Genesis 24 with the opening of our reading for today. Both stories include Laban, an industrious woman, and the search for a wife. But the two courtships go in different...

Jacob Pursley: Armenia Update

February 27, 2021

The Land and the Book

Available to Listen Now

​Armenia: A nation of 3 million people living between Asia and Europe. Christianity has a long history here. So does tragedy. But so does hope.

Jacob Returns to Bethel

July 21, 2016

Jacob Returns to Bethel In theatrical productions, scenes often end with a technique known as a fade out. As the light dims, the characters on the stage recede out of view as darkness takes over. Genesis 34 and 35 represents a kind of literary “fade out” of Jacob’s role in our narrative. Learning of the rape of his daughter Dinah, Jacob apparently...

Jacob: His Final Journey

January 21, 2013

Jacob: His Final Journey Many sports fans enjoy rooting against teams like the New York Yankees, whose power, wealth, and history of success make them a target. We love to see the mighty brought low. Jacob’s story calls forth some of those same emotions. He deceived his way into his position, and we want to see his “comeuppance.” But by chapter...

Mighty Warrior for Jacob

July 15, 2018

U.S. basketball teams dominated in international competitions—until the 1988 Olympic Games, when the men’s team mustered only a bronze medal instead of the expected gold. But unlike every other country, the American team was comprised of amateur players rather than professionals. The following year the rule was changed, and for the 1992 Olympic...

The Burial of Jacob

August 30, 2018

A person’s will usually reflects what they value as most important. In 2007, hotel owner and businesswoman Leona Helmsley died with an estate worth an estimated $4 billion. Much of that money went to a charitable trust; however, she also left a $12 million trust fund for her dog, Trouble. She left two of her grandchildren $5 million each (contingent...

Jacob: Faith, Promises, and God’s Faithfulness

July 18, 2012

Jacob: Faith, Promises, and God’s Faithfulness In times of emergency or crisis, human beings have a tendency to bargain with God. “Just get me out of this one, and I’ll go to church.” “Rescue me this time, and I vow to be a better person from here on out.” “I won’t make that mistake again, I promise—please let me off the hook.” As the saying...

Jacob: Faith, Wrestling, and God’s Faithfulness

July 21, 2012

Jacob: Faith, Wrestling, and God’s Faithfulness One Saturday last fall, 285 Indian girls chose new names to symbolize a fresh start in life. Gender discrimination is strong in India—sons are much preferred to daughters, leading to female names such as “Nakusa,” meaning “unwanted.” In a special renaming ceremony, girls with such names picked...
