If you read the same bloggers that I do you’ll probably have noticed that the biblical image of a man is apparently one of a tattooed wrestler who likes eating his red meat raw.
Is there hope however, for the slightly less macho among us, that the guy who Israel was named after (yes, his name was Israel…but it was Jacob first) was a bit of a mummy’s boy?
Take a look at these, and be reassured!
When the boys grew up, Esau was a skillful hunter, a man of the field, while Jacob was a quiet man, dwelling in tents. Isaac loved Esau because he ate of his game, but Rebekah loved Jacob. (Genesis 25:27-28)
