Jacob

Abraham's son was named Isaac. We know only a few events from Isaac's life. His life is woven together with the lives of his father, Abraham, and his own children, Jacob and Esau. Jacob, along with Isaac and Abraham, is one of the three "patriarch's," or fathers of God's Old Testament people, Israel.

Joseph

Jacob had twelve sons. One of them was Joseph. Joseph played an important role in the history of the Israelites. God used him to save his people from starvation in a world-wide famine. Joseph also enabled his extended family to live in Egypt and grow into a nation there before he gave them the promised land of Canaan.
