Genesis 32 -- Jacob: Contending with an Angel
Preview Talk:

Riddle me this:

Jacob had married four wives instead of one.

The wife he loved best brought with her statues of foreign gods in violation of the most important commandment.

Thus on two important counts, Jacob had violated the objective law God, the one he inscribed in the heart of every man.

Why is it then that God sends an angel to contend with him?

After all, your guardian angel contends with you on a daily basis to lead you on the path of holiness and if you cannot hear his voice then your life will seem easy and pleasant because there is no one to contend with.

Did Jacob deserve to have the grace of contending with an angel?

Hardly.

But God had swore an oath to Abraham and his world shall not pass.
