The book of Genesis comes to an end with the conviction that God has been at work in the lives of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. In Genesis 12:1-3 the promise was made that the family of Abraham would be great, that they would be given a land of their own, and that with God as their God, they would be a blessing to "all the families of the earth." Jacob/Israel comes to the end of his life with each aspect of the promise addressed. He is able to bless his twelve sons as well as the two sons of Joseph. Although he is no longer in the promised land, he had left with God's explicit permission, and his sons indeed bury him in the one piece of land that he owned in Canaan (Gen. 50:13). God's grace had triumphed.

This one-session study is a refresher for those who wish to remember just who Jacob/Israel was and the importance of his life for the community of faith.

This study is part of the "Figures in the Old Testament Study Pack."
