Moreover, I have given to you rather than to your brothers one mountain slope that I took from the hand of the Amorites with my sword and with my bow.
There are many beautiful pictures–types–of Christ throughout the Bible, helping us to better understand the gospel, and highlighting Christ’s glory through it. Here we have such a one.
Jacob had conquered “one mountain slope . . . from the hand of the Amorites” and was now giving his conquest to his son. Jesus came and conquered every sin, lived a victorious righteous life, slew death, and is now freely giving His glorious victory to all who want to freely receive it. His is the glory of the victory and ours is the eternal benefit.
