I have seen many applications for this passage to say how God would break our self dependance, how Lord would fight our old, how we should pursue blessings and so forth.. But I look at all these as application and not interpretation.. What is your interpretation of this passage? Why would Jacob just like that start a wrestling match? If it was pre-incarnate Christ, was He really not able to overcome Jacob? Why would the Angel break Jacob's hip? What is the interpretation without application?
