Now, this is Ann Landers, and it's dated June 13, 2002, so it's right up-to-date.

The Prosperity of Jacob

If you have your Bibles I'd invite you to turn with me to Genesis 30, and we’ll begin in verse 25. We continue our study in the life of Jacob. And it struck me, as I was reading through this passage again this week how much God emphasizes of His providence in this section of...

Genesis 31:1-21 The Flight to Canaan

If you have your Bibles I'd invite you to turn with me to Genesis, chapter 31. Last week's study provides the backdrop for the events which will occur here in the first half of Genesis 31. Indeed the whole of Genesis 31. And so as you turn to Genesis 31, you may want to sneak a peek at Genesis...

Genesis 32:1-23 The Fears of Jacob

If you have your Bibles I'd invite you to turn with me to Genesis, chapter 32. When we were last together in our study of the life of Jacob, we had come to the end of Genesis 31. And we said there are at least four great scenes in Genesis 31. First of all in those first three verses...

And just before we read, something to consider. My life was forever altered as a child when my dad introduced me to my now all-time favorite movie that I have seen probably 923 times, Hoosiers. And it is about the Indiana high school basketball team, the Hickory Huskers. And I adore the film. As a child, I loved it because of the underdog, David versus Goliath, theme. And I...

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Genesis 33. We’ll study this chapter tonight which recounts the meeting between Esau and Jacob.

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me to Genesis chapter 34.

If you have your Bibles I'd invite you to turn with me to Genesis, chapter 35. Tonight we come to a portion of the life of Jacob in which we are drawing towards the close of Moses’ focus on him as one of the patriarchs.

Genesis 37:1-17 The Favorite

If you have your Bibles I'd invite you to turn with me to Genesis 37. I, too, with Derek and many of you have been looking forward to getting to these chapters in the book of Genesis.
