Isaac and Rebekah became parents to twins. Esau became a hunter, while Jacob remained in the camp. Isaac favored Esau, Rebekah favored Jacob. One day Esau sold his birthright to Jacob in exchange for some lentil stew. When the time came for the old and blind Isaac to bless Esau, Rebekah disguised Jacob as his older brother so he received the blessing meant for Esau. Fearful of Esau’s revenge, Jacob fled to Rebekah’s brother Laban’s house in Haran.
