We’ve studied this pivotal text – Genesis 25:19-34 – before. The notes from four years ago are here.
Some additional notes may follow presently.
Just one additional note: the text appears regularly in lectionary, as the “semi-continuous” Old Testament option for the Fifteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time (A). Which means that there’s a reasonable chance you’ll know it’s in the Bible if all you know is the lectionary, though it’s not guaranteed. (Added 09.09.2022.)
