  3. Interesting about the place food sometimes has. Adam and Eve lost their inheritance with a few bites of fruit. Esau lost his for a few bites of stew. Big decisions over little things ~ they reveal the heart, don’t they?

  5. I love the parallel the writer gives here. He’s saying metaphorically to the Jewish believers who are thinking of denying their Christian faith to escape Nero’s persecution, don’t sell your birthright for a “bowl of stew.”

    What’s instructive to me goes along with how the writer contrasts this to the testimony of Moses in Hebrews 11:25-26: “choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God than to enjoy the passing pleasures of sin, esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt; for he looked to the reward.” And, earlier in the same chapter, “without faith, it’s impossible to please God” (Heb.11:6).

    Again, the theme is trusting in what you can’t see (New Covenant promises) over your current circumstances.
