Search The Scriptures — Study 24 — Genesis 31:1-32:2
Study 24 of "Search The Scriptures” Is:
1. Six more years have passed (31:41). To what extend is Jacob the deceiver now a changed man? See 31:6, 38-42. Also, what evidence is there that he has come to a deeper knowledge of God? See 31:3-13, 42.
2. What factors combined to make Jacob sure that God’s time for him to return to Canaan had come? How was the inevitable opposition of Laban overcome? What may I learn for my won encouragement from such a record?
Note. 31:42, 53. “The Fear of Isaac”: i.e., the God whom Isaac reverently worshiped.
