JACOB Epic Drama Complete Movie - The epic and powerful movie saga of the life of Jacob, the third of the Jewish forefathers, with Jacob played by Mathew Modine and his wife Rivka (Rebecca) played by Lara Flynn Boyle. Experience the life of Jacob, the father of the 12 Tribes, in this cinematic format. Follow the remarkable life of Jacob, including the dream of the ladder to heaven through his late-life reunion with his son Joseph in Egypt. In the land of Canaan lives Isaac, son of Abraham, with his clever, strong-willed wife Rebekah and his twin sons Esau and Jacob. The first-born, Esau, is a strong and fearless hunter with a voracious appetite for wordly pleasures. Jacob is a shepherd, more tender and compassionate than Esau. Just as Esau is the pride of his father, so is Jacob the apple of his mother's eye. Rebekah is convinced that Jacob, though the second born son, is the chosen one and the rightful heir of Isaac and Abraham. And she tells him that when she was with child, God announced to her: "Two nations are within thy womb. Two manner of men shall be delivered to you. The one shall be stronger than the other and the elder shall serve the younger".
