Bible study 28 – Genesis 28

Rebekah and Isaac have exactly one condition for their children-in-law: that they not be Canaanite. So it is decided that Jacob will marry one of his cousins in Haran, while Esau marries a cousin born to Ishmael.

One night on his way to Haran after Jacob goes to sleep on the ground, he has a dream about climbing a staircase to heaven and talking to God, and when he awakes he exclaims “How awesome is this place!”, and decides it must be the gate of Heaven.
