God chose Abel’s offering over Cain’s (Gen 4:1-8). Jacob get’s Esau’s birthright with the help of their mother (Gen 25:21-34). Israel loved Joseph best of all his sons (Gen 37:3-11). God chooses the shepherd boy, David, over all his brothers to be King of Israel (1 Sam 16:6-13). The prodigal son (Luke 15:11-32).
There’s a theme throughout the Bible that the younger brother is favored over the older brothers. What gives?
