Jesus as the Stone over the Well

Jesus as the Stone of Oath

  • Laban’s Covenant with Jacob –
    • Genesis 31:43 And Laban answered and said to Jacob, “These daughters are my daughters, and these children are my children, and this flock is my flock; all that you see is mine. But what can I do this day to these my daughters or to their children whom they have borne? 44 Now therefore, come, let us make a (oath) covenant, you and I, and let it be a witness between you and me.”
      45 So Jacob took a stone and set it up as a pillar. 46 Then Jacob said to his brethren, “Gather stones.” And they took stones and made a heap, and they ate there on the heap. 47 Laban called it Jegar Sahadutha (heap of witnesses in Arabic), but Jacob called it Galeed (heap of witnesses in Hebrew). 48 And Laban said, “This heap is a witness between you and me this day.” Therefore its name was called Galeed, 49 also Mizpah (Literally: Watch), because he said, “May the Lord watch between you and me when we are absent one from another. 50 If you afflict my daughters, or if you take other wives besides my daughters, although no man is with us—see, God is witness between you and me!”
      51 Then Laban said to Jacob, “Here is this heap and here is this pillar, which I have placed between you and me. 52 This heap is a witness, and this pillar is a witness, that I will not pass beyond this heap to you, and you will not pass beyond this heap and this pillar to me, for harm. 53 The God of Abraham, the God of Nahor, and the God of their father judge between us.” And Jacob swore by the Fear of his father Isaac. 54 Then Jacob offered a sacrifice on the mountain, and called his brethren to eat bread. And they ate bread and stayed all night on the mountain. 55 And early in the morning Laban arose, and kissed his sons and daughters and blessed them. Then Laban departed and returned to his place.

Whoever touches the mountain shall surely be put to death. 13 Not a hand shall touch him (that hand will become unclean), but he shall surely be stoned (as judgment) or shot with an arrow; whether man or beast, he shall not live.’
    • Dan 2:34 “You watched while a stone was cut out without hands (untouched by men) (supernaturally), which (came down from heaven) and struck the image on its feet of iron and clay, and broke them in pieces.

And the stone that struck the image became a great mountain (kingdom) and filled the whole earth. Dan 2:45 “Inasmuch as you saw that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands (supernaturally), and that it broke in pieces the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver, and the gold—the great God has made known to the king what will come to pass after this. The dream is certain, and its interpretation is sure.”
