"Company of Nations" in Genesis 35:11 and the Abrahamic Promise of Blessings for the Nations
Who is the "company of nations” referred to in Genesis 35:11 that shall come from Jacob? This article wants to understand its significance within the broader framework of the promise to Abraham in Genesis 12:3 and the way it developed in Genesis. The author proposes that the promise of “a company of nations” coming from Jacob is closely related to the initial promise to Abraham regarding blessings for the nations. He further discusses the eschatological outworking of his understanding.
