Women of the Bible - Episode #5 - Leah


Scene 5 Leah (and Rachel) (Genesis 29-30)

Laban’s daughter Rachel is betrothed to Jacob in exchange for seven years of his labor.

At the wedding, Laban sneaks Leah (his older daughter) in. Jacob then needs to work another seven years before he can marry Rachel (who he wanted in the first place). He has children with both wives and their handmaids. It’s the stuff tabloids are made of!
