Zac Poonen – Bible Teacher
We want to continue our study in Genesis. We have got as far as Genesis 24. We are more or less finished with the life of Abraham, and just this concluding part where we begin with the life of Isaac.
And in this session, we want to look at the lives of Isaac, Jacob and Joseph.
GENESIS 24 – A Bride for Isaac
First of all, in Genesis 24 it’s a very long chapter, 67 verses, one of the longest chapters in the… perhaps the longest, I’m not sure, in the book of Genesis. And all that it describes is how Abraham arranged for a wife for Isaac.
There are many marriages mentioned in Scripture, but only two marriages which we know definitely were from God. One was Adam’s; there’s no doubt about that that his wife was God’s choice.
And the second was Isaac’s. His wife was God’s choice as we read in Genesis 24. And people ask me, do you believe in arranged marriages? I said yes. Marriage is arranged by God. That may be through parents, it may be without parents, but it must be arranged marriage, arranged by God. The one thing I see – you see, both are valid.
