He dreamed that he saw a ladder standing on the earth, with its top reaching up into heaven; a stairway for the angels of God to go up and come down (Genesis 28:12).
Believe me when I tell you this; you will see heaven opening, and the angels of God going up and coming down upon the Son of Man (John 1:51).
Is Jesus referencing Jacob’s dream, and claiming that He Himself is the Ladder to and from Heaven?
Father Knox thought this quote refers to the Ascension and the Last Judgement, but I immediately thought of the Jacob’s Ladder. What do the Fathers and Doctors think?
