Jacob Returns to Bethel (4-21-24)

Apr 21, 2024    Dr. Jim Glass

Failing to follow through with God's instructions and his own promises, Jacob had delayed his return to Bethel by stopping in Shechem. When two of Jacob's sons horribly avenge their sister's assault, he feared for his family. The Lord intervened by calling Jacob and his family to give up their idols and purify themselves, and their response had a powerful effect on the people around them. Jacob finally arrives at Bethel where the Lord reaffirms his name change and the promises made to Abraham, Isaac, and to Jacob himself.
