the meeting of Jacob and Esau

So Jacob returned home, knowing he'd have to meet up with is brother Esau eventually. He sent gifts on ahead, hoping to win favor with him (worrying that he was still mad at being tricked 20 years before). Above is J's drawing of the strange man Jacob wrestled with during the night while he waited for Esau -- turned out it was a messenger from Yahweh who told him he would now be known as "Israel". Below is Zoo Boy's drawing of Jacob and Esau's joyous meeting, with one of Esau's men standing behind him, and Jacob's wife Rachel and son Joseph waiting to meet Esau.

Above is J's story summary, below is Zoo Boy's.
