The apple does not fall far from the tree


Gen 36

Esau decided to live in Seir, which then became the country called Edom, which means red and is the second name for Esau, who had red hair. Esau’s offspring is called the Edomites, one of Israel’s archenemies. Though the conflict between Jacob and Esau was calmed due to the grace of God and Jacob collaborating with the Spirit, humiliating his heart before his brother and thereby touching Esau’s heart so that he could forgive his brother, Esau’s offspring re-entered the conflict with Jacob’s offspring. The story is again about war and peace and how God offers peace to everyone, people are free to choose war with God. That is what Esau and his offspring did. This is the reason why Esau’s offspring lived in war with God’s people.
