Jacob's left Laban, and no sooner does the two part company that Angels of God met him as he entered the Land. This should have been a comfort to Jacob as Esau now filled his thoughts with fear. Fear that Esau would now kill him, as he had threatened to do 20 yrs ago as he left the land a wanted man by Esau. No sooner than the Angel vision is behind him, Jacob does what he does well, scheme, He sends his own messengers out to scope the land and see if he can placate Esau with gifts and to get assurance that Esau will forgive Jacob. But he finds out that Esau is coming with 400 men - an army - to meet Jacob. It's here Jacobs Fear of man goes on full display, and this was the subject for our study. The fear of Esau, and the Fear of man in general.
