Description

How much would you risk on a bet if you believed that the payoff was a sure thing? The more confident you are, the more you'd bet. How much would you be willing to change your life for the promise of great return? Again, the more you believed in the payoff, the more you'd sacrifice. These questions confront us as we wonder why Yaakov tried to finagle the birthright from his brother for a bowl of soup. What were they really talking about? Why did Eisav say yes? And what's all that got to do with Christopher Hitchins?
