Genesis 15 – Jacob becomes Israel

Jacob returns home, knowing that this means that he will need to confront Esau. On the way, he is met by angels of the Lord, who are described the same way as the angels at Bethel. In the end, Jacob sends a series of gifts in an effort to appease Esau.

Jacob wrestles with a man, begging for a blessing, but discovers that this is actually an angel. The angel blesses him and changes Jacob’s name to Israel for one who wrestles with God.

When Jacob meets with Esau, Esau embraces him.
