Parashat Toldat covers the Torah from Genesis 25:19 – 28:9. In this week’s portion, Denise Rutledge shares the thematic connections between the two brother’s Essau (Esau) and Yakov (Jacob).
- As a believer in Jesus as the promised Messiah, Denise shares the patterns shown in the life of Isaac that mirror the patterns followed by Jesus in His life.
- Then she goes on to show how the two sons reflect two kinds of believers in G-d.
- She concludes with parallels from the love of Isaac (Yitsak) for Essau that reflects the love of G-d for those who are like Essau.
