6/24 “Genesis: Jacob’s Four Wives”

In a Nutshell: Families are contaminated by the same toxic elements that will poison all of our relationships if we don’t seek reconciliation.  Jacob’s whole family was contaminated by favoritism, competition, and deception.  The only solution was seeking reconciliation.

Ice Breaker—  How did your parents or siblings contribute to favoritism, competition, and deception when you were growing up?

Texts: Genesis 25-29

Leah gave birth to sons rapidly (4):  Reuben, Simeon, Levi, and Judah

Rachel’s handmaid: Bilhah gave birth (2) to Dan and Naphtali

Leah’s handmaid: Zilpah gave birth (2) to Gad and Asher.

Leah again gave birth (3) to Issachar, Zebulun, and Dinah (only female)

Rachel then gave birth (2): Joseph and Benjamin
