The width and depth of God’s love that flows throughout the Old and New Testaments as seen with spiritual insight


Why did God establish Jacob, who was crafty, as the father of Israel?


Why did Jesus come to this earth through the tribe of Judah?


Jacob and his sons continued the orthodox genealogy of Abraham.

And in their adventurous lives are embedded the heart of God who chose them with His love and trained and refined them to bless them.

This book explains the details of the tumultuous life of Jacob beginning with his birth until Verez was born through his fourth son Judah, who carried on the orthodox genealogy of Abraham. It also explains why Esau couldn’t receive the blessing for the first son; why Jacob’s fourth son Judah had the birthright; and why Joseph was sold into Egypt as a slave. It contains the deep and mysterious providence of God in these events.


It also explains the spiritual meaning of the names of the 12 tribes of Israel; the differences between the 12 sons of Jacob and the 12 tribes of Israel; and the differences between the 12 disciples of Jesus and the 12 apostles of the Lord after His resurrection.

Israel, which was formed through Jacob’s 12 sons, serves as the model of human cultivation as God’s elect. But because they eventually forsook the love of God and did not obey Him, the gospel was handed over to the Gentiles. This is also the love of God who wants to save not just the elect Israel but all other peoples as well. 


This is not the end of God’s love. After the second coming of the Lord in the air, God allows the ‘gleaning salvation’ to take place through the 144,000 preachers who come out from the 12 tribes of Israel (Revelation 7:4). It’s the love of God who wants to save even just one more soul.


The faithful love of God the Trinity was given in the Old Testament and will continue to be given to us until the Lord comes back. Through this book I hope the readers will understand this love of God and press on towards the city of New Jerusalem, which is the most beautiful dwelling place in Heaven.
