The Power of Innovation-12

Genesis 30:37 “And Jacob took him rods of green poplar, and of the hazel and chesnut tree; and pilled white strakes in them, and made the white appear which [was] in the rods.”

Luke 6:3 “And Jesus answering them said, HAVE YE NOT READ so much as this, what David did, when himself was an hungred, and they which were with him;”
