Esau's Descendants (Genesis 36)

Genesis 36 gives us the genealogy of Esau, father of the Edomite nation. In this passage we survey the important role of the Edomites in Biblical history, including lessons we can learn from their sin of arrogance. This chapter also provides a surprising key to unlocking the mystery of who Job was, when taken together with the Septuagint reading of Job 42. We also look at an important connection between the Edomites and a critical prophecy regarding the timing of birth of Christ as explained by Eusebius, the famous early church historian.

(Note: this lesson includes a discussion of Job 42, based on the Septuagint. The translation based on the Septuagint is included above for download for those who do not have access to this.)
