Who was ... Jacob? - 10 am 9/8/09 (Genesis 32)

The life of Jacob followed a U-shaped ‘comic’ plot in which high hopes were dashed, but fortunes reversed after a mysterious encounter with God. Jacob’s life mirrors that of God’s people. The life of every human, if not to become a tragedy, also needs this turning point of encounter and repentance in order that God might fight not against us but for us. The result is a second birth and a new creation.
