Genesis 48 Crossed Up


In Hebrews 11:21, Jacob's entry into the "Hall of Faith" describes a mountaintop moment of faith for him. It's not his wrestling with God. It's not his wonder at the stairway to heaven. It's not even his sacrifice to God before departing the Promised Land. Instead, it's the event of this chapter, Genesis 48, where Jacob worships on his staff as he blesses Joseph's sons.
