The Biblical Soap Opera – Jacob
One of the wonderful things about the Bible is that it is totally honest about its characters. It doesn’t “sugar coat” anything. It contains the successes, failures, everyday life, and even love stories of the people that lived long ago, which is one of the reasons why we can learn so much from the Bible. Jacob – this man had a messed-up family life. His love story with his first, second, third, and fourth wife reads like a terrible soap opera, but God was able to use it! If you’ve ever doubted that God can work through you or your family because of the mistakes that you have made, think again – God is not done with you. Please listen as Jeremy Leu, our student minister, shares out of Genesis 29 about Jacob and the terrible biblical soap opera.
