The First Drink Offering
Context: Jacob, after reconciling with Esau, is told by God to return to Bethel and settle there and build an altar. God appears to Jacob and extends to him the covenant and promises of Abraham and Isaac. Jacob sets up a stone pillar to mark the spot and pours out a drink offering on it (Gen 35:11-14)

Characteristics of drink offerings
