This is Bill’s commentary on the torah portion Toledot – “generations.” The portion begins with the fascinating and contentious birth of Esau and Jacob. Throughout the parsha we see the developing story of these two brothers and the enmity that exists between them. Furthermore, the Scripture makes it clear that this conflict between brothers has far-reaching ramifications, extending into the present and affecting the entire world. Some highlights:
- Esau’s nature vs. Jacob’s nature.
- Why Jacob is not a supplanter.
- Esau’s skill at setting a snare.
- Esau’s eternal hatred.
- Much more.
