A True Beginning – Funeral March (Genesis 35:1-29)

Genesis 35:1-29 - Funeral March


Jacob completes his vow and sets off to go to his father but has several sorrowful funerals along the way.


Genesis 35:1-29     Genesis 27:45     Deuteronomy 7:25-26     1 Samuel 10:2     John 16:33     2 Corinthians 4:8-11     Ephesians 4:22-24     Colossians 1:5-6


Jacob then reminds his family that the Lord has been with them everywhere they’ve gone. They didn’t need the gods of the land gods who couldn’t speak or help or give. You have to carry those gods with you. You have to clothe them and protect them. Meanwhile, the One True God walks with us even when we are unfaithful. Jacob could look back on the years of distress and it was clear the Lord was his shield even while they were playing around Canaanite idols.
