Sibling Rivalry

Abraham’s descendants who fathered nations:

1. Jackob was the second son of Isaac and Rebekah and he was the Father of the nation of Israel through his 12 sons.

2. Esau was the first son of Isaac and Rebekah and the twin brother of Jacob. He was the ancestor to the tribe called Edomites, well he had six wives so he had lots of children. King Herod the Great was from the tribe of Edom.

3. Ishhmael was the first son of Abraham by the Egyptian slave Hagar and he became the father of nation of Midian the ancestors of the Arabs.

Sibling rivalry among the children of Abraham is still going strong today. Now you know!
