Marian Figures Of The Old Testament: Rebekah

-Rebekah receives a blessing as she leaves to take Isaac as her husband: "Our sister be the mother of the thousands and ten thousands...."

-Rebekah intercedes to protect the line of patriarchs from her unworthy son, Esau.
She intercedes for Jacob, dressing him to resemble Esau.

Marian parallels:

-Mary is the Spiritual Mother of all peoples.
-Mary dresses us in the likeness of Christ so that we can receive the inheritance of the Father!
-Mary intercedes for us in Heaven as Queen.
