Genesis 31-31-32, “The Hinge”
I have entitled this session “The Hinge” because this is the point in our story where Jacob begins to change. Jacob has been running to seek safety within the Hills of Gilead. It is at this very place where he is overcome by his greatest fear, his father-in-law. Laban just finishes his demeaning lecture. Jacob now responds, “Because I was afraid….” This is different. This is new. We would naturally expect Jacob to retort with some clever response, but no, he appears to be laying down his arms. Let’s look closer.
