Jesus Himself pointed out that He can be found in the passage about Jacob’s dream, when He said to Nathaniel,
And He said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, hereafter you shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of Man.” Joh 1:51
Mankind can try to build a tower whose top reaches into the heavens, but the Ladder which God has provided is the Way into heaven, who is Jesus Christ our Lord!
The name of Judah, the forefather of Messiah Yeshua according to the flesh, meaning, “Now I will praise the Lord,” is the only name given without referencing the contest between Rachel and Leah for Jacob’s love and esteem. It is a name rooted purely in worship and thanksgiving to God for His goodness. And just as Judah was received without spite or challenge, so God gave His only Son, Messiah Yeshua, the son of Judah after the flesh, to the world wholly in love without spite or challenge. Thank You Father!
First, the chiastic structure from Gen 30:22-25a as a loose end at the beginning of the parashah, tells about the birth of Joseph to Rachel, who was barren. Joseph becomes a Messiah type in Torah. The mother of Messiah Yeshua was also unable to bear children, for she was a virgin, but she likewise conceived, as Rachel did, through the intervention and agency of the Holy Spirit.
Second, note in this passage:
So he removed that day the male goats that were speckled and spotted, all the female goats that were speckled and spotted, every one that had some white in it, and all the brown ones among the lambs, and gave them into the hand of his sons. Then he put three days’ journey between himself and Jacob, and Jacob fed the rest of Laban’s flocks. Gen 30:35-36
Three is a sign of Messiah in Torah. The distance of a three days’ journey as a sign of Messiah in Torah can also be found in triennial parashah vayhee nisah, Gen 22:1-24. Now notice which of the flock Jacob (Israel, i.e. Messiah type) chooses for his own: the speckled, spotted, and brown (not white). The ones who were valued least because they were not unblemished. I cried!
And Laban was told on the third day that Jacob had fled. Then he took his brethren with him and pursued him for seven days’ journey … Gen 31:22-23a
Three is a sign of Messiah in Torah. The third day is the day of resurrection and new life. His life in Padan-Aram, among the idolaters of his father-in-law’s household, had been a life of hardship looking after Laban’s flocks and herds. But by the third day Jacob had broken free from his father-in-law’s household, and by the seventh day (a week of completion) he was within the mountains of Gilead, on the borders of Canaan … well and truly free.
