The paradigm relationship between the twin brothers, Jacob and Esau, sets the basis for not only grasping the historic, ethical, religious, political, and eschatological conflict going on right now in Israel and the entire Middle East -- between the descendants of Jacob and of Ishmael/Esau -- but also the volatile history and entrenched perceptions of Christians and Jews. Each side sees themselves as the rightful heirs, and sees the other as rejected. Each seeks to vindicate themselves to be the chosen ones to inherit redemption, while seeking vengeance on the other to prove their point. Fascinating!
Two Nations in Your Womb has been kept under wraps, and the time has come for it to receive wider exposure and to learn from its lessons. It is not a light read, but it is most definitely worthy of much more attention.
