One Man's Journey

A series of podcasts about the life of Jacob, by Mike Haddorff

Posted by on in One Man's Journey

 

Genesis 49:21, Jacob's Blessings, Part 18

 

We now add Naphtali’s blessing to the mix. This verse may be familiar to some of you. It is sometimes quoted as a description of God’s freeing power through Christ. I am taking a similar view, however we will be looking at the verse within the historical context as it relates to Israel. We will end this session with a table time discussion correlating the ideas we learned to our own context.

Genesis 49:20, Jacob's Blessings, Part 17

 

Much like his brother Gad, Asher’s blessing is one verse and spoken entirely in the third person. As I looked closer a comparison of the two blessings become apparent. Whereas Gad illustrates the idea of delayed gratification, Asher’s blessing alludes to the idea of enjoying life in the here and now. I decided to pursue this comparison a bit further. Let’s take a look.

Genesis 49:19, Jacob's Blessings, Part 16

 

We continue our study with Jacob’s blessing to his seventh son, Gad. Gad’s blessing is one verse, spoken entirely in the third person. It indicates a prevailing through struggle. Let’s take a look at the man and the tribe to see if we can derive some meaning for the rest of us.

Genesis 49:18, Jacob's Blessings, Part 15

 

Jacob now speaks out a short plea to God. How do we correlate his expression to what we have been learning? Let’s take a look as we hear the Moot Men grapple with this text.

Genesis 49:16-17, Jacob's Blessings, Part 14

 

Today we focus our attention on Jacob’s blessing to his son Dan. As previously done, we will first look at Dan’s birth context. We will then examine the text itself to discover that Dan is likened to a small serpent with a big bite. Finally we will attempt to derive meaning for you and me.
