Biography, Facts and
Information about Rebecca
The following info
provides a concise biography with facts and information about Rebecca:
the daughter of Bethuel, and the wife of Isaac (Genesis 22:23;
24:67). The circumstances under which Abraham's "steward" found her
at the "city of Nahor," in Padan-aram, are narrated in Genesis
2427-27. "She can hardly be regarded as an amiable woman. When we
first see her she is ready to leave her father's house for ever at
an hour's notice; and her future life showed not only a full share
of her brother Laban's duplicity, but the grave fault of partiality
in her relations to her children, and a strong will, which soon
controlled the gentler nature of her husband." The time and
circumstances of her death are not recorded, but it is said that she
was buried in the cave of Machpelah (Genesis 49:31).
We have selected Rebecca as one of the most important women from the Bible and provided a biography and character outline
