The story of Genesis is the origin story of the Jewish people.  It is how they discovered who there were, where they were, and who their God was.  As we come to investigate the story of one of the famous patriarchs of the people of God, Jacob, we need to understand why his life is recorded for us.  God, as the sovereign author, has written Jacob’s story, complete with all his failures, weaknesses and deceit, into His grand saga.  In this introduction to our series on the life of Jacob, Pastor Joe investigates the way in which God’s sovereignty impacts our lives for good.
