Slide 1

This story about twin brothers is found in the very first book of the Bible. – Slide 1

Slide 2

Isaac and Rebekah had twin boys. Esau had been born first and as he grew up was very hairy, but Jacob wasn’t hairy like his brother. – Slide 2

Slide 3

The twin brothers were different in other ways too. Esau loved to go away hunting venison for his father Isaac’s dinner, but Jacob liked staying at home cooking. – Slide 3

Slide 4

Isaac wanted his boys to know about God’s promise to their ancestor, Abraham, that their family would have God’s special blessings and become great. – Slide 4

Slide 5

‘This special blessing to our family, always passes to the eldest son,’ said Isaac.  Jacob loved hearing about God's special promises and wished he was the eldest son. – Slide 5

Slide 6

One day Esau came home from hunting feeling so hungry that he was nearly fainting. ‘Give me some of your red lentil soup,’ he said, ‘before I die of hunger.’ – Slide 6

Slide 7

You can only have it if you give me your special promise from God,’ answered Jacob.  ‘Well, it is no use to me if I die,’ Esau replied and he swapped God’s promise for a bowl of soup. – Slide 7

Slide 8

After he had eaten, Esau felt much better and he was sorry that he had given away God’s special promise, but Jacob treasured having God’s special blessing. – Slide 8
