圣经经文

创世记25:19

意思

雅各(或雅各布)源于希伯来名字יַעֲקֹב (Ya’aqov),意思为“代替者”,“抓住脚跟的人”。雅各是以撒与利百加之子。他是在利百加的子宫内就抓住他的孪生兄弟以扫的脚跟出生的,所以他得了“雅各”这个名字。 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. 旧约圣经也记载,雅各用红豆汤换了以扫的长子名分。之后,他趁父亲视力模糊,假扮自己为以扫,骗取了父亲对以撒的祝福。因此雅各也有“代替者”之意。
