The Bible won’t be reduced to mere representations and symbols, although it has those. The Bible is much like the angel that Jacob wrestles, refusing to be pinned. Refusing to be named or seen completely. Able with a touch to ruin the reader and able to bless him forever. Even to rename the reader.
And the name it gives the reader? One who struggles with God.
Jack Baumgartner, an artist from Kansas, engraved this linocut print called Jacob Wrestling with the Angel of God. (A special thanks to Jack for allowing me to use an image of his print.)
