Jacob and the angel: Wrestling to reconcile body and spirit
“Jacob Wrestling with the Angel” by Leon Bonnat (1876) via Wikimedia Commons
When Jacob wrestled with the angel in the Bible, they embodied the struggle between sexuality and spirituality. Artists have created many homoerotic images of the scene over the centuries.
