Genesis 26, Whats with the recurring theme of lying about the wife being a sister?

Question: Whats with the recurring theme of lying about the wife being a sister?? Answer: I attribute it to them being sojourners. The other peoples were established in the land, in cities, with kings, etc. While Abraham and Isaac lived in tents, and traveled from place to place. They were not as secure, and they were like guests in the land. When they let the fear grab hold of them, they would lie instead of trusting in the Lord. -PJ
