Have you ever wondered what the teleology (purpose) of the Hebrew bible is? I believe that the teleology is to create a nation of Jews. Jacob's destiny was to be the ruler of the nation.
The 1st event leading up to his destiny was when God spoke to Rebekah, his mother. God told Rebekah that his 1st born would serve her 2nd son.
