The Jesse Tree–Day Six

We read about Jacob’s dream at Bethel (Genesis 28:10-22) today. This again was to emphasize that all generations would be blessed through his family line, in the form of the coming Messiah.

I behold him, but not near:
a star shall come out of Jacob,
and a scepter shall rise out of Israel…
