Genesis 24 | The Servant & Rebekah
October 9, 2022
Trusting in God to provide, very late in his life, Abraham calls his servant to go to the land of his kinsman to find a wife for his son Isaac. The servant goes, faithfully obeying Abraham and fully trusting the Lord to provide. And at a well, the scene of Ancient Near Eastern betrothal narratives, Rebekah, of the clan of Abraham’s family, appears and demonstrates generous hospitality, willing service and a fearful spirit. She is the chosen too, the one through whom the promises of God will be realized.
