"City of God" XVI.38-39

Chapter 38:
The history of the City of God through the life and marriage of Jacob, who was separated out from Esau and by whom the City of God grew through four wives, though not through sin. Rather, each was through a promise, just as we grow through God's promise to us.

Chapter 39:
Jacob's renaming and wrestling with God is a type of Christ, who voluntarily let the Jews overcome Him that we might be renamed and brought into the City of God.
