As parents, we often try to justify our actions and motives when dealing with our children. Jacob said he loved Joseph more than his brothers because he was born to him in his old age, but is there another motive as to why Joseph favors one of his children over the others?
(Q-4) The parents of Jacob and his twin brother Esau (Gen.25:24), was Isaac and Rebecca, his wife. Now Rebecca was childless because she could not bear children. (Q-4) What did Isaac do when his wife Rebecca could not have children?
