The book of Genesis is full of stories about siblings who do not get along. Indeed, it would be impossible to read Genesis without considering the first fratricide, or the struggles that shape the relations between Isaac and Ishmael, Jacob and Esau, Rachel and Leah, and Joseph and his brothers. In this class, we’ll examine these rivalries and the connections between them. We’ll consider why rivalries play such an important role in the first book of the Bible, and the role that parents play—or fail to play—in these rivalries.
