Jacob’s Dream – its New Testament Fulfillment (H. Smith)
Genesis 28; Hebrews 13,5b
Scriptures: Genesis 28; Hebrews 13, Keywords: Letter to the Hebrews; Jacob
The writer of the Epistle to the Hebrews 1 alludes to the fine scene recorded in Genesis 28. In Hebrews 13:5, we read, “He has said, I will never leave thee nor forsake thee.” Thus the promise made to Jacob is appropriated to the ... moreChristian. So we may rightly conclude that in the story of Genesis 28 there is a shadowing forth of good things to come. In Genesis God is speaking to one of the fathers in a dream; in the Epistle to the Hebrews we have, no longer the partial revelation of a dream, but, the full revelation in the Person of the Son.
