Jacob 雅各布

圖片說明: Jacob Wrestling with the Angel by Alexander Louis Leloir

聖經經文

創世記25:19

意思

雅各(或雅各布)源於希伯來名字יַעֲקֹב (Ya’aqov),意思為“代替者”,“抓住腳跟的人”。雅各是以撒與利百加之子。他是在利百加的子宮內就抓住他的孿生兄弟以掃的腳跟出生的,所以他得了“雅各”這個名字。 After wrestling with an angel, God changed his name to Israel because he had struggled with God and with men and had overcome. Later on his twelve sons became the twelve tribes of Israel. 舊約聖經也記載,雅各用紅豆湯換了以掃的長子名分。之後,他趁父親視力模糊,假扮自己為以掃,騙取了父親對以撒的祝福。因此雅各也有“代替者”之意。
