Book: Genesis

Moving through the family Patriarchy/Matriarchy chapters of Genesis, a story of conflict arises through the twins, Jacob and Esau. Jacob, the second born, believes he must fight his way through life to earn his place, but what he realizes is that God is already and always is with him. So Jacob called the name of the place Peni′el, saying, “For I have seen God face to face, and yet my life is preserved.”  Genesis 32:30
