Sunday School Lesson 120 Jacob and Esau - the blessing stolen

Lesson: 120

Lesson Name: Jacob and Esau: The Blessing
Theme: Opportunity: A Turning Point / Choices

Reading: Genesis 27:1-40

Memory Verse: Prov. 10:22
Memory Verse Text: The blessing of the Lord . . . maketh rich.

Talking Points:

Point 1: Isaac as old and blind physically is a picture of his failing spiritual perception.  The time was near that he would die; he wanted the blessing for Esau.
Point 2: Rebekah knew that Jacob valued the blessing, so a plan was developed to rob Esau of its benefit.
Point 3: Even though Jacob lied, cheated his brother, and deceived his father, the story shows that God's grace is bestowed on the most undeserving person because he longed for it.
Point 4: Make the class go to the Hebrews 12:17 to make a final comment regarding Esau's remorse and what God says about Esau's loss.

Notes: Make it clear that Jacob's lies and deceit were SIN.
