Bible Verse: Chapter 3 Ephesians 4:24 and to put on the new self, the one created according to God’s likeness in righteousness and purity of the truth. CSB

Bible Chapter 3 Study Guide: (Test scheduled – August 30th)

  1. Jacob hurt his family through his deceit. Jacob tricked his brother, Esau, and lied to his father in order to receive the inheritance and blessing that were not rightfully his.
  2. Because Esau threatened to kill Jacob after being tricked, Jacob feared for his life. Jacob left to go to his uncle Laban’s home in Paddan Aram.
  3. After leaving home, Jacob had an amazing dream. In the dream, God showed him a ladder, or staircase, leading up to heaven. Angels were ascending and descending on this ladder.
  4. God identified Himself to Jacob in his dream by reminding Jacob of His prior relationship to Abraham and Isaac. Through this relationship, God affirmed His covenant to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
  5. God offered the covenant to Jacob that included the land of Canaan, many descendants, and a future nation. Jacob’s part was to trust and obey God. Jacob agreed to the covenant, as long as God would take care of him.
  6. Jacob met his uncle Laban and Laban’s daughters, Rachel and Leah. Jacob worked for Laban for seven years in order to marry Rachel, but he was tricked into marrying Leah instead. He worked another seven years as payment for Rachel and six additional years to earn flocks and herds of animals.
  7. Laban was just as deceptive as his sister Rebekah and Jacob had been. Living a life of deception is not how God wants believers to live.
  8. A covenant is a promise.
  9. Jacob was the third generation to receive the promises from God’s covenant. This was not because of Jacob’s righteousness, but because of God’s grace and faithfulness.
  10. Grace means favor given that is not earned or deserved.
  11. God told Jacob to return home to Canaan, but Jacob was afraid that his brother, Esau, might still try to harm him or his family. Jacob prayed for God’s protection/help.
  12. After sending his family across the Jabbok River, Jacob remained in his campsite alone. Late at night, a Man wrestled with him. Jacob knew that this Man had been sent from God, so he demanded a blessing. The Man blessed Jacob, but made Jacob’s hip go out of joint. Jacob’s name was changed to Israel.
  13. Jacob continued his journey to meet his brother. Esau forgave Jacob and allowed Jacob and his family to settle in the land
  14. God confirmed His covenant with Jacob at Bethel.
  15. By way of a new covenant, Go promises believers the forgiveness of sins and eternal life through faith in His Son, Jesus.
  16. God offers the gift of salvation to everyone. A person receives God’s new covenant of grace through faith.
