Welcome to the Torah Portion Toldot. In this post, we will cover the weekly Torah portion and weekly Haftarah portion from a cultural perspective. There is also an Echoes Through Scripture teaching which takes a theme from the Torah portion and connects it throughout the rest of the Hebrew Bible and into the Apostolic Scriptures.
Now these are the genealogies of Isaac, Abraham’s son. Abraham fathered Isaac. Isaac was 40 years old when he took for himself Rebekah, the daughter of Bethuel the Aramean from Paddan-aram, the sister of Laban the Aramean, to be his wife. Isaac prayed to YHWH on behalf of his wife because she was barren. YHWH answered his plea and his wife Rebekah became pregnant.
