Jacob’s Story as Christian Scripture
Jacob’s Story as Christian Scripture0 0 5 Forfatter: Philip H. Kern
Jacob's Story as Christian Scripture begins with a reading of Genesis 25 to 35, and then moves beyond the boundaries of Genesis to track the words he pronounces over his twelve sons. Jacob's blessings give shape to Balaam's oracles and ultimately to subsequent prophecies concerning the lion of the tribe of Judah. Prophetic appropriation of Jacob's story, presented here via a fresh investigation of OT passages from Jeremiah, Obadiah, Micah, and others, includes troubling elements of Jacob's character to indict the nation--in the hope that God's people, like the patriarch, will stop being Jacob and become Israel.
