Vayislach (Audio Portion
In the opening lines we find that Jacob may have the power to command, or at the very least persuade, heavenly messengers to do his will. Then, before we can even catch our breath, we find that Esau is coming to his little family reunion with 400 friends and yet he may be the one who really feels threatened. Be that as it may, what follows is the “Greatest Apology Ever Sold” in Scripture; a true template for how to make amends on so many levels. But just when things seem at their happiest in 20 years, disaster strikes with the rape of Dinah with everyone around that tragedy thinking they know what she needs and utterly failing, not just Dinah, but their father and the entire family unit is literally in mortal jeopardy. Tough? Absolutely. But this is what the people of Elohim have to go through sometimes to eventually get to the right place. See for yourself, and discover why there’s nothing like a Good Book to really deliver on human drama.
