    ___________________________________________________________
    d. Verse 13 is not to be understood as “hated” as we think of the word but

rather it is a relative term that described Esau being blessed less than Jacob.  

Jesus used this same kind of language when He stated that a person must “hate”

his father and mother if they would follow Christ (Luke 14:26) 

IV._Application:  To properly understand God’s election we need to connect it to

Romans Chapter 8:29-30 and see God’s foreknowledge at work in the process.  

How does election work? ___________________________________________
