How did Jacob strip the firstborn son birthright from Esau?
“So he went and took them and brought them to his mother, and his mother prepared delicious food, such as his father loved. Then Rebekah took the best garments of Esau her older son, which were with her in the house, and put them on Jacob her younger son. And the skins of the young goats she put on his hands and on the smooth part of his neck. And she put the delicious food and the bread, which she had prepared, into the hand of her son Jacob. So he went in to his father and said, “My father.” And he said, “Here I am. Who are you, my son?” Jacob said to his father, “I am Esau your firstborn. I have done as you told me; now sit up and eat of my game, that your soul may bless me.”” Genesis 27:14-19.

How did Esau respond when he discovered that Jacob obtained the blessing that was reserved for the firstborn son?
“Now Esau hated Jacob because of the blessing with which his father had blessed him, and Esau said to himself, “The days of mourning for my father are approaching; then I will kill my brother Jacob.” But the words of Esau her older son were told to Rebekah. So she sent and called Jacob her younger son and said to him, “Behold, your brother Esau comforts himself about you by planning to kill you. Now therefore, my son, obey my voice. Arise, flee to Laban my brother in Haran and stay with him a while, until your brother’s fury turns away—.” Genesis 27:41-44.
Twenty years later, when Jacob returned to the land of Canaan with his family, Esau forgave him, and they embraced and reconciled. They eventually parted amicably, and each went on to establish their own legacy and heritage.

Whose sons were the twelve tribes of Israel named after?
The blessing that Jacob received from Isaac included the fertile land of Canaan, the Promised Land, which was intended for the descendants of Abraham. Jacob’s descendants would become the twelve tribes of Israel.
“Your offspring shall be like the dust of the earth, and you shall spread abroad to the west and to the east and to the north and to the south, and in you and your offspring shall all the families of the earth be blessed. Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land. For I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.” Then Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, “Surely the Lord is in this place, and I did not know it.” Genesis 28:14-16.
