Isaac and Rebekah

Genesis tells that Rebekah married Isaac and he loved her greatly. She comforted him when Sarah, his mother, died.

Isaac and Rebekah birthed two sons – Esau, father of the Edomites and the Amalekites, and Jacob. After wrestling with God, Jacob changed his name to Israel. Through Israel, the Messiah will be born, fulfilling the covenant made to Abraham by God.
