A-Z: General definitions: Jacob's Ladder


In the Old Testament book of Genesis Jacob has a dream and sees a ladder leading up to Heaven, with angels going up and down. At the top of the ladder is God, who promises land to Jacob and his descendants and a blessing on Jacob. Jacob's ladder is often seen to represent God's power and authority but also his closeness to humans. (Genesis 28:10-15)
