The Patriarchs 2: Isaac & Jacob

Jacob, also called Israel, was a Hebrew patriarch as the grandson of Abraham, the son of Isaac and Rebekah, and also viewed as the traditional ancestor of the people of Israel. Jacob, through an elaborate double deception, managed to obtain his older brother’s birthright from their father. After fleeing from his brother Jacob, he took refuge in Mesopotamia where he met his wives Rachel and Rebekah and fathered twelve sons, the twelve tribes of Israel.
