(11) Jacob's new name

Jacob lived 20 years with his uncle.
At the end of the 20 years,
God told Jacob to return to his home land.
But Jacob still feared his brother Esau.
Jacob prayed to God that Esau might not kill him.
Jacob prayed so hard that when he saw the man of God,
Jacob grabbed him and wrestled with him
until the man of God blessed him.
and Jacob won.
God gave Jacob a new name "Israel."
because Jacob had wrestled with God and men and had won.
With God's blessing,
Jacob reunited with his brother Esau.
