The story of Jacob and Esau offers many great lessons. It’s also a continuing pattern of the second born being chosen for God’s service.
The key event of Chapter 23 is the death of Sarah. Chapter 24 tells of Abraham sending his servant to find a wife for Isaac.
Genesis 22 prefigures the cross. Parallels between Isaac and Jesus reveal typology of Abraham’s son, Isaac, that points to God’s Son, Jesus.
Genesis 22 records God’s testing of Abraham’s faith and obedience. God told Abraham to offer his son, Isaac, on the altar of sacrifice.
