After cheating his twin brother of his birthright and blessing twenty years earlier, Jacob finds himself in big trouble. He learns that Esau (who had previously wanted to kill him) is approaching Jacob's family with 400 men. What kind of man has our deceptive, conniving Jacob become over the past two decades? How will he respond to this test? There is much for us to learn from Jacob’s desperate prayer and a strange incident where he wrestles all night with an unknown "man."
There are two recordings associated with this lesson, the second of which explores the concept of theophany and whether it's possible for perople to "see God."
