This portion of Scripture implies that Esau and Israel lived in proximity to each other. As we studied last week, they were in communication with each other because they came together to bury their father, Isaac.
Many of the radical sects of the Black Hebrew Israelite groups identify Caucasians or White people as Edomites and much of what they have to say about Edomites is very derogatory and racist. Remember, Esau is the twin brother of Jacob/Israel. The descendants of Esau are called Edomites.
Edomites were not forbidden to become part of the congregation of Israel. They could also worship among the congregation after the third generation. The Edomites are the cousins of the Israelites.
Listen to hear Arthur discuss the Genealogical Table of Esau’s Family.
