Selecting Isaac's wife, Rebekah
So on Day 10 of the Daily Bible Podcast, we are dealing with Genesis 24. In Genesis 24, we are selecting a suitable wife for Isaac. You know, the non-bastard son of Abraham. Well after Sarah dies, Abraham then decides to get his son a wife, because why would he find himself a wife, that's ridiculous. So Abraham sends his servant to the land of Nahor and tells him to get Isaac a bride. So it wasn't actually Abraham that went.. he sent a fucking proxy.
We also discuss the age of Rebekah when she was selected and the morality surrounding that. Selecting Isaac's wife, Rebekah, is very odd. Apparently there is a secret phrase she has to utter that would indicate that god selected her as isaac's wife. I don't know why God couldn't just tell the servant of Abraham which pre-pubescent girl to select for isaac but he decided to play a game with it. Probably for shits and giggles.
