WWF - Bible Style

Dr Mariottini has begun a series of articles unpacking Genesis 32:22-30 where Jacob experienced God in a  very unique way. He wrestled God.  I think everyone should read the passage and Mariottini's articles because he brings up questions I never really considered before. God said that Jacob won the match. What does that mean? What did Jacob win? Did God take a dive? What? The article is great for considering such questions and more. It's a great example of what exegesis is supposed to look like. Read the articles at the following links.
