September 3 Genesis 27 Jacob's deception
Here we see the character of Rebekah and Jacob together. As I noted before, I believe that Rebekah and her family already had the trait of deception and she taught it to Jacob. And we see Jacob living up to his name of a sneaky cheat. Something I note also of significance is in verse 20. do you see it? Jacob says the Lord your God, not our God or my God. As yet Jacob was still trying to do it all himself, in fact we'll see that for a while yet. Like so many people who've always been able to solve their own problems with schemes and manipulations Jacob didn't need God. In the final section Jacob is heading to school, Rebekah sends him to her brother who is a master in deceit and tricks.
