Today on Commuter Bible – Jacob pulls the wool over his dad’s eyes by pulling goat skin over his own body. It also becomes apparent that Jacob has absolutely no idea how breeding works, and yet God allows his flocks to increase. When you step back and think about it, I think most of us have no idea what we’re doing, and yet God is gracious anyway.
Jacob the deceiver lives up to his name. He goes to great lengths to disguise himself from his blind and aging father, tricking him into thinking that he is Esau instead. Rachel and Jacob come up with a way to trick Isaac yet again, and Isaac sends him to another country, thereby avoiding the wrath of Esau. Even though Jacob meets the receiving end of deception at the hands of Laban, and tries his hand at manipulating Laban’s riches, God continues to grant favor to Jacob.
