Join Drs. Saleska and Oberdeck as they discuss Jacob's next move in his ongoing family situation. He's worked for his father-in-law for a long time, and now the Lord asks him to return to his homeland. How can he leave Laban?
Dr. Saleska takes us through the tumultuous household of Jacob as he attends to the sisters, Leah and Rachel, whom he has married, and their two servants, all who provide him with twelve sons and one daughter.
Dr. Saleska explains in detail Abraham's comission given to Eliezar to find a wife for his son Isaac. This is not your ordinary romance story, at least not in the way we ordinarily think of romance today. Yet this is a love story!
The promise is made once again, only now within a specified period of time. Within a year the aged couple will have a son. Will they continue to believe these promises? Listen as Dr. John Saleska takes you in-depth into the story.
Dr. Saleska resumes the study of Genesis with an introduction to the family of Abram and the call Abram receives to leave Haran and go to the Promised Land; where he will be a blessing not only to his own people, but to all people.
