Genesis 28:10

gen 28:10

And Jacob went out

Bethel becomes, because of Jacob's vision there, one of the significant places of Scripture. To the Christian it stands for a realization, however imperfect, of the heavenly and spiritual contents of faith, answering to Paul's prayer in (Eph 1:17-23). Dispensationally, the scene speaks of Israel the nation, cast out of the Land of Promise because of evil-doing there, but holding the promise of restoration and blessing; (Gen 28:15); (Deu 30:1-10). To "an Israelite indeed" Christ speaks of Jacob's vision as to be fulfilled in the Son of man (cf); (Gen 28:12); (Joh 1:47-51).
