     After tricking his older brother out of his birthright, Jacob leaves home in fear for his life.  Upon seeing Rachel's beauty for the first time, he forgets his past and only dreams of his future with her.  Penniless and unemployed, Jacob offers Rachel's father the only thing he can give her for her hand in marriage---manual labor for seven years.  But uncle Laban is a treacherous and selfish man, and on what should be the happiest night of Jacob's life, he orchestrates the ultimate deceit. ______________________________
