Not one to read the bible often, the other day I looked up the story of Jacob’s Ladder, and wondered what Jacob might have seen in his dream. ? Some kind of balloon for lifting big stones? A ridiculous idea of course. This is from Genesis 28, 10 - 22 (New International Version).

‘Jacob left Beersheba and set out for Harran. When he reached a certain place, he stopped for the night because the sun had set. Taking one of the stones there, he put it under his head and lay down to sleep.  He had a dream in which he saw a stairway resting on the earth, with its top reaching to heaven, and the angels of God were ascending and descending on it.....
When Jacob awoke from his sleep, he thought, “Surely the Lord is in this place, and I was not aware of it.”  He was afraid and said, “How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God; this is the gate of heaven.”
 Early the next morning Jacob took the stone he had placed under his head and set it up as a pillar and poured oil on top of it....
Then Jacob made a vow, saying, “If God will be with me and will watch over me .......then the Lord will be my God and this stone that I have set up as a pillar will be God’s house.......”
