Why Did God Choose Jacob, Not Esau? (Unconditional Election)
To conclude our survey of the Genesis narrative of Jacob, an important question must be asked. “Why did God choose Jacob, not Esau?” Another way to ask this question is “On what basis did God choose Jacob over Esau?”
Answer: God chooses to whom He grants mercy not on the basis of man’s will, but based on God’s sovereign free will so that His purposes might stand. And that divine prerogative is what makes Him God.

A Bible study that puts God’s word first.
Dr. Cheung’s podcast provides an excellent analysis and review of Biblical scripture. While many Bible studies seek to draw out personal interpretations of passages, i.e “what does this passage mean to me?”, Dr. Cheung asks “what is God saying in this passage and how does it apply to me?”.
Dr. Cheung also provides the cultural and historic backdrop to a particular passage. This is crucially important for understanding scripture and its application; after all, can we apply scripture to our lives if we don’t know what it meant to the people it was originally delivered to?
A final note is that the Bible study is not an in-depth/deep dive into original languages and exegetical terminologies. But Dr. Cheung’s studies will certainly draw you to looking deeper into that passage, to conduct your own study about what God is saying in scripture.
