Isaac Bible Study Lesson
Isaac and Rebekah Bible Story of Love

I'm glad you decided to come back and share another story from the Book of Genesis. Our last story was about when God tested Abraham's faith by asking him to give Isaac's life for a sacrifice. Abraham passed his test of faith and God allowed Isaac to live and carry on the bloodline.

Years had passed and when Sarah, Abraham's wife was 127 years old, she died in Hebron. Abraham bought a field that had a cave in it for a burying place from the descendants of Canaan in the presence of all the people of the city. He buried Sarah there.

It may seem strange to you that Abraham would buy the field, being that God gave him the land of Canaan. But you have to consider that Abraham had seen many strange things happen in the last 62 years since God first told him about the Promised Land and he wanted to make sure that his beloved wife would rest in peace forever without question.

Abraham was getting on in years and was concerned about who Isaac would marry. He told his oldest servant, Promise me that you won't let Isaac marry a daughter of the Canaanites. Go back to my homeland and find a wife for Isaac there. God will send his angel there first, and if the woman isn't willing to follow you, then you'll be released from our vow.

Isaac Bible Study Message
Isaac and Rebekah Bible Story

The servant gave him his word, took some of Abraham's camels along with him and set out for the city where Nahor, Abraham's brother lived. When he arrived outside the city he took the camels to rest near a well at the time of day when women go to fetch water. He prayed, Lord of Abraham, show kindness to my master and when the women come out to get water, let it be that the young woman I ask for a drink from, will tell me that she'll get water for the camels too. And let that same girl be the one that you have chosen for Isaac.

Before the servant had finished his prayer, Nahor's granddaughter Rebekah came out with a pitcher for water on her shoulder. She filled the pitcher and the servant ran to meet her and asked for a drink. Rebekah said, I will get water for your camels too.

The servant asked whose daughter she was and if her father had room for him and his camels to stay there. Rebekah told him who she was and the servant bowed his head and worshipped the Lord, thankful for His kindness to Abraham.

Rebekah ran ahead of him to her father's house and when the servant got there, he explained everything that happened. He asked if Rebekah could go with him. Her mother and her brother agreed, It's the Lord's will, take her to be Abraham's daughter in law.

Isaac was in the field at dusk, praying, when Rebekah arrived with the servant. When she saw Isaac, the servant told her who he was and she covered her face with a veil and jumped down from the camel.

The servant told Isaac what he had done and Isaac took Rebekah as his wife and he loved her very much.

Wouldn't it be nice to have such devotion to love these days? In a world where divorce is commonplace, it is very romantic to ponder on the love that some of those in the Bible possessed. We should strive to obtain and maintain that love for others and for our Lord. Unconditional. Be sure to visit Daily Bread again where in our next story you'll read more about the life of Isaac.
