Hello Catherine,

Gen 27 started the major rift. Esau sold his birthright to Jacob for a bowl of soup. At the blessing Jacob tricked his father Issac that he was Esau. If this never would have happened, the Holy story would have been set around Esau.

Bless you for seeking understanding.

The passages that reference this occasion (Genesis 4:2-5 & Hebrews 11:4) don't explicitly state what caused God to reject Cain's offering. We could assume that it was because of the type of offering made by them or the state of heart from which it was given. Or even a combination of the two.

So, whether Cain's offering was not a blood offering (which they may have known about) or Cain made his offering as one of compulsion or necessity, whereas Abel's offering was both of a blood sacrifice & with contrition of heart, we can't be certain. If the LORD "showed preference to Abel", it would have been justified based upon what those brothers knew was the right thing to do.
