The hand of God's providence...

A great quote from a great Bible scholar--Alfred Edersheim a rabbi who became a Christian teacher, summarizing the lesson of Genesis 27: 

"...a higher hand guides the threads of history, so that neither sin nor error can ultimately entangle them. Each one weaves the threads which are committed to him according to his own views and desires; but at last, when the texture is complete, we behold in it the pattern which the Master had long devised, and towards which each labourer had only contributed one or another feature.”
