Jacobs wrestles with God?

Postby Arc » Sun Sep 11, 2011 10:57 pm

When Jacob is about to reunite with Esau a man suddenly appears out of no where and wrestles him throughout the night and pops his hip out of place....Then it said he wrestled with man and God....

Is this literal or metaphorical?

I can see hit both ways....since he limps afterward im feeling that its literal, but I dont understand exactly why this occurred...
I am an Exile, a Sojourner. I am a nomad, a wanderer. I am a pilgrim, a voyager. Ill never call this place my home, Im just passing through

It is foretelling Israel's struggle and wrestle with God before Christ.
