Toldot (“Generations”) opens with the births of Isaac and Rebecca’s twins, Jacob and Esau. Esau sells his birthright to Jacob in exchange for soup. Isaac and Rebecca travel to Gerar, where Isaac makes a peace treaty with King Abimelech. Isaac gives Jacob the blessing meant for Esau, and Jacob runs away to his uncle Laban.
In the Haftorah, the prophet relates the LORD’s disdain for half-hearted Priests who serve without love or sincerity, unlike Aaron and his sons.
In the Apostolic Writings, the author of Romans tells of the importance of Divine election and that the Father chooses for His own who He will.
