God's Story: Jacob and Esau
Who Is Esau-Edom?
Edom , ancient land bordering ancient Israel, in what is now southwestern Jordan , between the Dead Sea and the Gulf of Aqaba. The Edomites probably occupied the area about the 13th century bc. Though closely related to the Israelites according to the Bible, they were descendants of Esau , they had frequent conflicts with them and were probably subject to them at the time of the Israelite kingdom 11th—10th century bc. Edom prospered because of its strategic location on the trade route between Arabia and the Mediterranean and its copper industry at Ezion-geber. Edom and Moab were later conquered by the Nabataeans, and the Edomites migrated to southern Judaea , where they were known in New Testament times as Idumaeans.
The smallest Old Testament account, the Book of Obadiah is a vision written by The Lord's prophet known as Obadiah, who prophesied against Israel's relative nation Edom. The Edomites, who were descended from Jacob's brother Esau, still carried the grudge their founder had for Jacob's deception. Worse, Esau's nation hated Israel even more. They refused to help Israel in their need, sold them as slaves, and even abused them while they were exiled to Babylon. Through Obadiah, God declares judgment over Edom and prophesies that they will be erased from history. Babylon overtook Edom years later, never to recover again. Obadiah announces Edom's downfall to Babylon, which is an image of how God will bring down all arrogant and violent nations.
In the ancient time and land of the Bible, nearly 4, years ago, Rebekah, the wife of the patriarch Isaac, was informed by God that she would give birth to twins whose fate would be as diverse as their character. The dissimilar and conflicting character and destiny of these twins, Esau and Jacob, would have the most profound impact on future events in the world. The analysis of the history and Scriptural insight of Esau and the Edomites, will unveil and explain many of the problems in the world. It will offer a new perspective on wars, economic crisis, hate crimes, political conspiracies, Zionism, anti-Semitism, anti-Christianity, government corruption and the Jewish issue. The question of "Who is Esau-Edom" undoubtedly involves the most stupendous drama ever enacted in the annals of man.
