  Jacob (WebBible Encyclopedia) - ChristianAnswers.Net
When Isaac was about 160 years of age, Jacob and his mother conspired to deceive the aged patriarch (Gen. 27), with the view of procuring the transfer of the birthright to himself.

Jacob was soon after this deeply grieved by the loss of his beloved son Joseph through the jealousy of his brothers (37:33).

 Jacob's Ladder (Climbing Arc) Construction
The simple explanation is that an arc starts at the bottom and due to the fact that hot air rises, tends to move up the diverging rods until they are too far apart for the voltage provided by the power source.
There are only two major parts to a basic Jacob's Ladder: a high voltage power source and a pair of rods arranged in a narrow V configuration on an insulated and fireproof support.
A Jacob's Ladder works on the principle that the ionized air in the arc is a lower resistance than the air around it and heated air rises.

 Jacob and Esau and the Emergence of the Jewish People
Jacob is to become Israel (literally: one who struggles with God) whose energy is to be directed by the covenant with God, while Esau will struggle with men and animals (nature) to become, in the eyes of the Midrash, the exemplar of a non-Jewish imperial ruler.
Jacob emerges as he is to live the first half of his life, struggling for personal advantage, as Yaakov, one who grasps at the heel of his brother, trying to get out first.
Jacob continues to display characteristics which are later to become part of the non-Jewish stereotype of Jews (although they are only prominent, not typical -- witness the very different characters of Abraham and Isaac), while Esau continues to display characteristics which are later to become part of the Jewish stereotype of non-Jews ("goyim").

Jacob's life seems to be one predominated by his having to flee from one circumstance after another.

The first was a vision in which Jacob saw a ladder reaching up to heaven; the second was a wrestling match with God that ended when God touhed Jacob's thigh and made it wither; the third was a directive to return to Bethel.
