This week we return to Genesis and the story of Jacob. This week focuses on Jacob’s encounter with a mysterious man whom he wrestles for a blessing. We learn about Jacob’s renaming to Israel and how that name shapes the identity of the Israelites.
“The Seed of the Kingdom”- This week we look at what the Kingdom of God is and how it comes about through the power of the Holy Spirit.
This week we do a recap of what we have been learning so far in the book of Genesis and look at the story of Jacob’s ladder as God appears in an in-between place.
This week we learn of the relatively lighthearted love story of Isaac and Rebekah. Still, God shows God’s radical provision in providing a way forward that is different in better than any we could think of.
Here we sit with one of the most harrowing stories in all of our scriptures- the binding of Isaac.
This week we journey with Hagar and find that sin has deep roots and long consequences.
