 Daily Bible Study - Rachel
Rachel, from the Hebrew name pronounced raw-khale, was the daughter of Laban, niece and daughter-in-law of Rebekah, daughter-in-law of Isaac, granddaughter-in-law of Abraham and Sarah, younger sister of Leah, first-cousin and second wife of Jacob/Israel, and mother of Joseph and Benjamin, from whom two of the Twelve Tribes of Israel originated.

After a very eventful return journey in which Rachel stole her father's "household gods" (Genesis 31:19-55), Jacob "wrestled with God" and was then renamed Israel (Israel means he struggles with God) (Genesis 32:22-32), and Jacob met and was reconciled with his brother Esau (Genesis 33:1-20), they eventually made their way back to Bethel (Genesis 35:1).
