SAA Notes

Jacob shows Abraham’s faith – God speaks and Jacob listens to the Word and does it. God gives Jacob the Covenant Promise to Abraham – and beloved Rachael dies in childbirth. This is a family that God loves. We are to see that the wider effects of sin within the world are so undiscriminating and life-engulfing that God had to act – Jesus had to come.
