Jacob and Esau were twins, therefore, they had practically the same DNA. They did not look like each other. Therefore, some of Jacob's descendants will look like or have Esau's charcteristics and some of Esau's descendants will look like or have some of Jacob's characteristics. Edomites (Lot and Esau's descendants) tended to intermarry with the Arabs more than Jacob's descendants. The Arabs are Abraham's descendants through Ishmael. The Israelites are Abraham's descendants through Sarah, Isaac, Rebecca, and Jacob and his two wives Leah and Rachel and two concubines. The twelve sons of these four partners are the twelve patriarchs of Israel. The Twelve Apostles of Christianity have the blood of all twelve tribes in them. JJI 8-19-06. Abraham was blessed by endogamy and by exogamy. Jacob was forbidden exogamy. It cannot be reasonably construed that that prohibition extended forever. The Israelite Kingdom fell in part because of too much exogamy. JJI 8-19-06.
