Rebekah at the Well is lesson 7 in the first quarter of a year of Preschool Bible Study that I assist with on Wednesday evening.
Last week we learned about Abraham and his wife Sarah. They had a son named Isaac. God promised Abraham that his descendants would be so many; they would be like the stars in the sky. Abraham and Isaac are found in the book of Genesis (24). There are two parts of the Bible and Genesis is the first book in the Old Testament.
Abraham decided to send his servant to find a wife for Isaac (his son). Abraham’s servant took 10 camels with him and traveled to Mesopotamia. He had the camels kneel down outside the city by a well. It was in the evening. The women came to the well to get their water. Abraham’s servant prayed to God that the woman that was right for Isaac would say “drink and I will give your camels a drink also” when I ask her to draw water for me. (vs. 14)
Before he was done praying, Rebekah came to the well. She had her pitcher on her shoulder to carry her water. She was very beautiful! When Abraham’s servant asked for water, Rebekah gave him and the camels water! He gave Rebekah two bracelets and a gold nose ring.
He asked Rebekah about her family and asked if there was a room where he could stay. Rebekah told him that there was a room for him and his camels. Abraham’s Rebekah’s brother Laban (La’ ban) went to the well after he saw the new jewelry that his sister was wearing. He told the servant to “Come to our home! We have a room ready for you and the camels.”
Abraham’s servant said “I can’t eat until I tell you why I am here. I am Abraham’s servant. He is very wealthy (rich). He had a son when he was very old and I was sent here to find a wife for his son Isaac. When your sister did the things that I was waiting for, I knew she was the woman that God thinks is the right one for Isaac.” Laban said that this is what God wants. Take Rebekah to be Isaac’s wife.
Abraham’s servant took out clothing and jewelry made from silver and gold to give to Rebekah. He also gave gifts to her mother and brother.
Isaac was in the field when he saw the camels coming. The servant told Isaac where he had been and everything that had happened. Isaac married her and he loved her.
