Genesis 32 - Jacob's Doesn't Wrestle. He Transforms.
Who does Jacob wrestle with? Was it like a WWE match? Why does Jacob get touched on the hip and why does he walk with a limp? And what does this all mean for the people of Israel whose name starts as a result of this event? This episode covers folkloric history, theological depictions of the covenant and God, and some psychological analyses of conflict, conversion, and change. Genesis 32 is one of the most relatable chapters of the Bible and one of the most important for the Biblical narrative.

Genesis 31 - Household Gods, Family Conflict, and Jacob's Homecoming
Jacob returns from Laban's household in Genesis 31. Rachel and Leah are left without inheritance and some household gods are stolen in the process. Genesis 31 wraps up the deception of Jacob and Laban and acts as an etiology for some pieces of land and as a theological portrait of Israel and God. Genesis 31 ends one part of the Jacob cycle and sets up another conflict that is waiting for Jacob back at home.
