Explore the life of Jacob – and learn how God never gives up on us.
As one of the patriarchs of the Old Testament, Jacob is perhaps best known for deceiving his twin brother Esau out of his birthright, and taking their father’s blessing for himself. But there is so much more that we can learn from Jacob and his experiences as a son, brother, husband and father. Through his struggles, mistakes and challenges, he learnt many lessons and allowed God to set him back on the path towards home.
Through these seven chronological sessions, discover:
- more about the family tree that Jesus was born into
- the power of persisting in prayer
- how we can take hold of God’s blessings and purposes for our lives
