Colossians - Complete in Christ

Jacob: Schemer and Dreamer
Jacob is one of the most important men in the OT. He’s one of the four patriarchs of the Jewish nation and the most flawed. As we trace his life, we will discover that he had as many defeats as victories. Unlike some other Bible characters who seem to march from victory to victory, Jacob’s life is a struggle from the very beginning. He comes out grabbing his brother’s heel and dies settling old scores with his children. In between he knows more than his share of sorrow and heartache. In short, here is man who lives the way most of us do—two steps forward and one step back. There is just as much encouragement as there is warning in his life. His story is full of mistakes and sin, and yet when you turn to Heb. 11 its his name that is honored in the Hall of Faith.
