The story of Jacob is told in this remarkable biblical story which features Jacob wrestling with the Lord. We see how he goes from being a deceitful man to a man known as Israel, "a prince".
This film is a pretty accurate picture of the biblical story of Jacob and we see his dedication in waiting Rachel's hand in marriage when his father-in-law wrongfully presents Leah to him in the beginning instead of Rachel. There are a few scenes of battles depicted with some blood shed. This inspiring biblical film is awarded our Dove "Faith Friendly" Seal for ages twelve plus. Watch it soon and see the Bible come to life!
