I was curious if you've guys ever done a Bible study more in depth of Jacob & Esau. Because I learned some interesting things about them & they are represented as Julian & Edmund in the game?
I found out that God loved Jacob & hated Esau! It's in the Bible. Romans 9:13 Even in the game Edmund is rude but Jacob isn't, he's more likable even though he was the one who cheated.
I think even in Jacobs deceit he was also gentle & sensitive. He liked to stay home in tents, & cook food, while his hairy warrior type personality brother was hunting. Jacob was kind towards his wives , & he married the women God wanted fhat weren't rebellious like the foreigner wives his impulsive brother married.
Jacob also felt sorry for taking his brothers birth right & gave him back many animals & cattle. God also chose Jacobs family line to eventually bring the birth of Jesus Christ the Messiah.
Some people think Esau was better but it says in the Bible God loved Jacob & hated Esau.
It's in Romans 9:13.
Jacob is a good reminder that even though we aren't perfect & don't deserve God's forgiveness of sins, God still loves us just like He forgave & blessed Jacob. It shows how loving God really is that He could have punished Jacob but instead he let him take his brothers blessing.
In this world there are warrior boys for Christ, but they're a also gentle, sensitive boys out there like Jacob living for Jesus Christ. I'm praying that the warrior personality type boys will stop bullying the sensitive boys & that sensitive boys will stop making fun of warrior boys for not being as educated & intelligent as them.
Everyone has different personalities & interests.
& God made some boys hairy Warriors & God made some Boys more gentle liked Jacob.
I found some really interesting info about Jacob & Esau. I googled Christian websites about their character traits.
