Rebekah Bible Study On Marriage
Isaac's Wife Rebekah Bible Story on Love

So good to have you back again at Daily Bread to find out what happens next in the book of Genesis. You are halfway through the first book of the Bible! To refresh you on where we left off, we found out that Esau had traded his birthright for a bowl of stew.

As we pick up where we left off, there was another famine. Isaac and Rebekah's marriage was about to be tested by the world. God told Isaac not to go to Egypt, but that He would tell Isaac where to go. Then we find a story in Chapter 26 that is very similar to the previous stories about Abraham telling the Pharaoh and Abimelech that Sarah was his sister, only this time it was Isaac saying that Rebekah was his sister.

When the king of the land found out that Rebekah was Isaac's wife, he ordered that anyone who touches either one of them would be put to death. The king knew that God was serious about plaguing entire kingdoms for such things.

Isaac planted in that land. The Lord blessed him and Isaac harvested a hundredfold in that one year. He grew rich and the Philistines (a people from Canaan) were jealous of him. All the wells that Abraham's servants dug when he was alive were filled up with dirt by the Philistines.

The king told Isaac to leave because he was growing so quickly, and Isaac left there and settled in the valley. Isaac started re-digging the wells that Abraham first dug. The herdsmen of the area fought with Isaac over some of the wells. But God appeared to Isaac and said, I am the God of Abraham, your father: Don't be afraid, I am with you and I will bless you and multiply your seed for my servant Abraham's sake. Isaac built an altar there and his servants started digging another well.

When the king saw that Isaac was blessed he visited Isaac and asked to make a covenant with him to live in peace with one another. The same day, Isaac's servants told him that they had found water.

In the meantime, when Esau was 40 years old, he took two wives that were from Canaan. This troubled Isaac and Rebekah greatly.

Rebekah Bible Study Summary
Isaac's Wife Rebekah Bible Story Conclusion

This study proves that God may ask us to do something that seems peculiar, but He will always have our back. The next time, we'll find out how Jacob actually received not only Esau's birthright but the blessing that Isaac intended for his oldest son Esau (as per tradition) However, God had a different plan. After all, Esau had already traded up his birthright to Jacob years earlier. This event is what makes the Muslims hate Israel (Jacob) to this very day.
