I am not a scholar of theology but my guess regarding the coming in of Rachel centers on the initial contract between Jacob and Laban. Jacob's wife was to be Rachel. Though Laban deceived Jacob, the contract remained in force. Only the length of labour changed. The zeal with which Jacob worked clearly testfies to this. Leah was accepted probably to avoid enemies on both sides. In that sense therefore, all Israel can be officially 'Rachel's children'.
