FROM THE BEGINNING
JACOB LOVES RACHEL AND LEAH BIBLE STUDY
JACOB'S WIVES RACHEL AND LEAH BIBLE STORY
Welcome back to Daily Bread, I hope
you are having a great day. I'm kinda excited to show ya what
happens next so let's get to the study, shall we? When we left off the last
time, Jacob was on his way to his Uncle Laban's to hide from Esau until he
cooled down about having his birthright and blessing overtaken by Jacob.
Jacob had a dream about a ladder that reached Heaven with angels on it, and
spoke to God, who promised Jacob the blessings of the Covenant that He made
with his father Isaac and his grandfather Abraham before him. All in
all, things were looking very bright for Jacob.
He continued on his journey to Haran which is the same place where Abraham's
family settled after they left Ur of the Chaldees two generations before.
That was a safe distance, being as it was nearly 500 miles away from his
brother who sought to kill him. In our contemporary world we really
take for granted the modern methods of transportation that we use.
In those days, you didn't just gas up the camel and go. You needed
provisions for it as well as for yourself for days on end of travel through
desert conditions that were arid in the daytime and shivering at night.
Don't forget about the friendly wildlife that may be abiding close by
(wolves, coyote, boar) and the smaller insect types that reside in desert
conditions (scorpions, centipedes, snakes). And, what about
those sleeping accommodations anyway? Maps? There probably
weren't even gadgets like compasses that we now consider inadequate.
Was Jacob overjoyed about the protection that the Lord promised that night with
over 400 miles to go? In our lives today, are we too satisfied and become soft with the accommodations that modern
technology provides. Be prepared for those luxuries being removed by some
catastrophe and you being placed in a world where you must depend more on the
old school methods.
There are many opportunities when you
read Bible stories to strengthen different characteristics in your
own self that you admire in your heroes. Watch and see how God rewards patience and gratitude and what happens to those
who complain. Just a little Daily Bread crumb for everyone to digest.
RACHEL AND LEAH BIBLE STUDY RESEARCH
RACHEL AND LEAH BIBLE STORY EXPLAINED
Now, on with the story. Jacob neared the city he was traveling to and he
came to a field with a well where three flocks of sheep were lying. A huge
stone covered the mouth of the well. Shepherds gathered their flocks there
and when it was time to water the sheep, the stone was rolled away. Jacob
asked the shepherds where they were from and they told him they were from
Haran. He asked if they knew Laban and if he was well. They told him that
He was well and that his daughter Rachel would be arriving soon with her
When Rachel got there with the flock, Jacob rolled the stone
from the mouth of the well and watered the sheep for her. Jacob fell in
love with Rachel immediately and it moved him to tears. He kissed her and
told her that he was Rebekah's son and Rachel ran and told her father.
When Laban heard the news that his nephew was there he ran to
greet him and brought Jacob to his house. Jacob told Laban the reason why
he was there and Laban welcomed him to stay with them.
After a month had passed, Laban said to Jacob, Just because you
are family, you shouldn't work for nothing. What can I pay you?
Laban had two daughters. Rachel was the younger of the two and
the oldest was Leah. Rachel was beautiful and Leah was plain.
Jacob said, I'll work for seven years for your younger daughter
Rachel. Laban said, It's better that I give her to you than anybody else.
Stay with me. And Jacob worked for the seven years for Rachel, but his love
for her was so deep that it seemed like only a few days to him.
RACHEL AND LEAH BIBLE STUDY ON DECEPTION
RACHEL AND LEAH BIBLE STORY ON A DEAL IS A DEAL
Jacob told Laban, I have worked for seven years, now I would
like to marry Rachel. Laban gathered his friends and made a feast. When it
was dark, Laban took his oldest daughter Leah and sent her in to Jacob.
In the morning, Jacob saw that it wasn't Rachel and was furious
with Laban. What have you done to me? Didn't I work for you for Rachel?
Why did you deceive me?
Laban answered, In our country the younger shouldn't be given in
marriage before the oldest. Stay with Leah for a week, and then you can
have Rachel for a wife too, but you'll have to work another seven years for
So, after one week, Jacob married Rachel, then worked for Laban
another seven years. Jacob loved Rachel more than Leah, and when the Lord
saw that Leah was hated, he enabled her to have children, but Rachel was
Have you ever noticed that God always tends to stick up for the underdog in a matter? We all love an underdog. Leah
must have had a good heart, and that's what God sees, not the outward
appearance of a person (1 Samuel 16:7).
Here is a little Daily Bread crumb of information. In the days
of the Bible, a person's name was a very important part of who they were.
It was a one word story of what your parents hoped for you or prophecy of a
person's future. It often revealed an event or incident that happened just
before or at the time the child was born. The name Leah means weary or tired.
The Bible says that she was "tender" eyed. You can imagine how a person's name
could affect someone's life.
Leah conceived and had a son. She said, the Lord has seen my
suffering and she named him Reuben, which means, Who sees the son. And she
conceived again and had another son and said the Lord has heard that I was
hated, and she called him Simeon, which means hearing. She had a third son,
and she said, because I have given him three sons, this time my husband will
be joined to me. She named the child Levi, which means, Joined with him.
Leah had a fourth son, and said I will praise the Lord, and she named him
Judah, which means, Praise. After that, Leah stopped having children.
