Jacob’s dream, portrayed in this painting, is one example of this. Here is the pertinent Biblical description: “And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it.” – Genesis 28:12 (KJV, public domain) –Alice B.
