Documented Proof of The Physical Description of Jacob & Esau
Esau (which we already know)
Genesis 25:25-26 And the first came out red, all over like an hairy garment; and they called his name Esau. And after that came his brother out, and his hand took hold on Esau’s heel; and his name was called Jacob: and Isaac was threescore years old when she bare them.
Jacob (a description finally found in the story of Joseph and his wife Aseneth)
Joseph & Aseneth 22:3-7 (James H Charlesworth The Old Testament Pseudepigrapha) And Aseneth said to Joseph, “I will go and see your father, because your father Israel is like a father to me and a god.” And Joseph said to her, “You shall go with me and see my father.” And Joseph and Aseneth went to the land of Goshen to Jacob. And Joseph’s brothers met them and prostrated themselves face down to the ground before them. And they went in to Jacob. And Israel was sitting on his bed, and he was an old man in comfortable old age. And Aseneth saw him and was amazed at his beauty, because Jacob was exceedingly beautiful to look at, and his old age was like the youth of a handsome young man, and his head was all white as snow, AND HIS HAIRS OF HIS HEAD WERE ALL EXCEEDINGLY CLOSE AND THICK LIKE THOSE OF AN ETHIOPIAN, and his beard was white reaching down to his breast, and his eyes were flashing and darting flashes of lightning, and his senews and his feet like those of giant.
TWO THINGS: One, Jacob looked like an old Ethiopian man of great beauty. And Two, understand the ancient standard of beauty as opposed to today’s standard of beauty.
Jeremiah 13:23 Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots? then may ye also do good, that are accustomed to do evil.
