It is perhaps not surprising that the story of Isaac and Rebekah echoes that of Abraham and Sarah. The lesson quarterly notes that both couples struggled with childlessness, both had to deal with disputes over wells, both went to a foreign land during a time of famine, both Abraham and Isaac lied about their marriages, and both families experienced rivalry between siblings. At the same time, both “laid claim to the covenant promises that had been made by God.”
