What does Genesis 24:61 mean? [⇑ See verse text ⇑]

Finally, the servant is able to depart and head back toward Canaan with Rebekah, her nurse, and her servant girls in tow on the ten camels he brought with him. God has truly given success to Abraham's urgent mission to find Isaac an appropriate wife, a mother for the next generation of his offspring (Genesis 24:3–4). This woman will bear a son to Isaac, whom they will name Jacob. Jacob will later be renamed Israel by God, as the founder of His chosen people. This makes Rebekah, in both a symbolic and literal sense, the "mother of Israel."
