As we look at the account of Jacob stealing the blessing of his father from Esau, we see how important blessing was in the anceint world.  The truth is, we value blessing just as much today, but we don't always think about how important it is.   As we dive deeply into this passage, we learn a lot about how much Jesus loves us, and GIVES his blessing to us - A blessing we could never earn or deserve, but on that is ours in Christ.
