Jacob's prophecies

Jacob was the grandson of Abraham and the father of the 12 Tribes of Israel. He was given a prophetic vision by God of Israel's future that proved to be accurate - that the Jews would establish their own nation, that they would be scattered like dust to the ends of the earth, that they would have a worldwide impact, and that they would one day return to their homeland. All of these things have happened since.
