The Stone of Israel

Answers Concerning Prophecies and things future #40

The Stone of Israel

“ But his bow abode strong, and the hands of his arms were strengthened, by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob, of whom was the feeder appointed, by the stone of Israel,” (Ge 49:24 GenevaBible)

 

Jacob’s prophecy of “The shepherd, the stone of Israel” (Gen. xlix. 24), beyond the shadow of a doubt refers to the Lord Jesus Christ, as is evidenced by all the passages of Scripture which mention the Stone.

Jesus himself claimed to be “The Stone which the builders rejected” (Matt. xxi. 42), and which is to be “The head of the corner”, or “Chief cornerstone”(Eph. ii. 20; 1 Pet. ii. 6). He is the “stone cut out without hands” (Dan. ii. 34); “A tried stone” (Isa. xxviii. 16); “A precious cornerstone” (ibid); “A chief cornerstone, elect” (1 Pet. ii. 6); “A living stone” (1 Pet. ii. 4); “A stone, a tried stone, a precious cornerstone” (Isa. xxviii. 16).

Hence it is his brethren are referred to as  “Jewels” (Mal. iii. 17); and “Precious stones” (1 Cor. iii. 12).
