Genesis 28: Jacob's Ladder

Jacob is a type of Israel - and will be Israel. Unlike Esau, who despised the birthright, Jacob valued it greatly, and strove to obtain it by carnal means - as did the Pharisees. Jacob was exiled for his sin. - as was Israel Jacob's seed will be "as the dust of the earth", but not "as the stars of heaven" - as the covenant with Israel was an earthly covenant.

Hebrews 2:2 - "and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompence of reward". Jacob is deceived by Laban, and by the blood of goats and the clothing of his favorite son. Pharaoh drowns the Hebrew male children, and the Egyptian male children drown in the Red Sea. Haman builds a gallows for Mordecai, and is himself hanged upon it. Saul participated in the stoning of Stephan (who had not broken any law) - and was himself stoned.
