Open your Bibles to Genesis 24:62. Today I’m beginning a series of messages on marriage entitled, “Famous Lovers of the Bible.” Maybe you read People magazine or another one of the reputable news sources where you get all the news about celebrity marriages. But believe it or not, there were famous lovers in the Bible. As a matter of fact we have some right here in our church. I’ll highlight two couples each week.
Well the Bible contains many true stories about married couples. Some of them were strong and some struggled. And we can learn from each important truths about how to move from struggling to strong marriages. Today we’re going to look at the love relationship between Isaac and Rebekah. Isaac was the son of Abraham, and became the father of Jacob. In the Bible God is often called the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob because they were the first generations of God’s covenant with the Jewish nation from which would come the promised Messiah, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. And part of that family tree is the marriage of Isaac and Rebekah. Let’s read about how their marriage began. Read Genesis 24:62-67.
