ISAAC IS a transitional character in the Bible, the bridge between Abraham and Jacob. We discuss the stories of Isaac’s adult life—his lie about Rebekah to the king of Gerar and how how Jacob received the blessing that Isaac had planned to give Esau.
WE REACH the end of Abraham’s time on earth this week. We discuss the death of Sarah, Abraham’s purchase of the cave of Machpelah, the marriage of Isaac, the birth of Esau and Jacob, and the short-sightedness of Esau.
The pagan gods of the ancient world did not humbly submit after the Resurrection. Stunned and alarmed by the Resurrection, they withdrew, like the unclean spirit of Matthew 12:43–45, to a waterless place—Arabia.
