Genesis 33 – 34 “Reconciliation & Revenge”

Jacob’s family protection strategy was such that he favored the ones he loved the most, that is, Rachel and Joseph. Jacob demonstrates submission and respect by bowing before his elder brother. Esau warmly greets Jacob and his family. Am sure they talked more than is recorded here regarding their two-decade separation…Esau received Israel’s gifts, a sign of friendship.

Forgiveness and reconciliation can be hindered by anger, hatred, blame, resentment, denial, trauma andZ violence.
