Jacob wrestling with the angel

Jacob wrestling with the angel is described in Genesis. The "angel" in question is referred to as "man" and "God" in Genesis, while Hosea references an "angel"; the account includes the renaming of Jacob as Israel. In the Genesis narrative, Jacob spent the night alone on a riverside during his journey back to Canaan, he encounters a "man". In the end, Jacob is given the name "Israel" and blessed, while the "man" refuses to give his own name. Jacob names the place where they wrestled Penuel; the Masoretic text reads as follows: The same night he arose and took his two wives, his two female servants, his eleven children, crossed the ford of the Jabbok. He took them and sent them across the stream, everything else that he had, and Jacob was left alone. And a man wrestled with him until the breaking of the day; when the man saw that he did not prevail against Jacob, he touched his hip socket, Jacob's hip was put out of joint as he wrestled with him. He said, "Let me go, for the day has broken." But Jacob said, “I will not let you go unless you bless me.”

And he said to him, “What is your name?” And he said, "Jacob." He said, "Your name shall no longer be called Jacob, but Israel, for you have striven with God and with men, have prevailed." Jacob asked him, “Please tell me your name.” But he said, “Why is it that you ask my name?” And there he blessed him. So Jacob called the name of the place Peniel, saying, "For I have seen God face to face, yet my life has been delivered." The sun rose upon him. Therefore to this day the people of Israel do not eat the sinew of the thigh, on the hip socket, because he touched the socket of Jacob's hip on the sinew of the thigh; the account contains several plays on the meaning of Hebrew names—Peniel, Israel—as well as similarity to the root of Jacob's name and its compound. The limping of Jacob, may mirror the name of the river and Nahmanides gives the etymology "one who walks crookedly" for the name Jacob; the Hebrew text states that it is a "man" with whom Jacob wrestles, but this "man" is identified with God by Jacob.

Hosea 12:4 furthermore references an "angel". Following this, the Targum of Onkelos offers "because I have seen the Angel of the Lord face to face", the Targum of Palestine gives "because I have seen the Angels of the Lord face to face"; the identity of Jacob's wrestling opponent is a matter of debate, named variously as a dream figure, a prophetic vision, an angel, a protective river-spirit, Jesus, or God. In Hosea 12:4, Jacob's opponent is described as malakh "angel": "Yes, he had power over the angel, prevailed: he wept, made supplication to him: he found him in Bethel, there he spoke with us; the relative age of the text of Genesis and of Hosea is unclear, as both are part of the Hebrew Bible as redacted in the Second Temple Period, it has been suggested that malakh may be a late emendation of the text, would as such represent an early Jewish interpretation of the episode. Maimonides believed that the incident was "a vision of prophecy", while Rashi believed Jacob wrestled with the guardian angel of Esau, his elder twin brother.

Zvi Kolitz referred to Jacob "wrestling with God". As a result of the hip injury Jacob suffered while wrestling, Jews are prohibited from eating the meat tendon attached to the hip socket, as mentioned in the account at Genesis 32:32; the interpretation that "Jacob wrestled with God" is common in Protestant theology, endorsed by both Martin Luther and John Calvin, as well as writers such as Joseph Barker or Peter L. Berger. Other commentaries treat the expression of Jacob's having seen "God face to face" as referencing the Angel of the Lord as the "Face of God"; the proximity of the terms "man" and "God" in the text in some Christian commentaries has been taken as suggestive of a Christophany. J. Douglas MacMillan suggests that the angel with whom Jacob wrestles is a "pre-incarnation appearance of Christ in the form of a man."According to one Christian commentary of the Bible incident described, "Jacob said,'I saw God face to face'. Jacob's remark does not mean that the'man' with whom he wrestled is God.

Rather, as with other, similar statements, when one saw the'angel of the Lord,' it was appropriate to claim to have seen the face of God." This story is discussed in Muslim commentaries. The commentaries employ the story in explaining other events in the Hebrew Bible that are discussed in the Quran that have parallels, like Moses being attacked by an angel, to explain Jewish eating customs. Like some Jewish commentators, Islamic commentators described the event as punishment for Jacob failing to give tithes to God but making an offering like a tithe to Esau. In an analysis of Marxist philosopher Ernst Bloch's 1968 book Atheism in Christianity, Roland Boer says that Bloch sees the incident as falling into the category of "myth, or at least legend". Boer calls this an example of "a bloodthirsty, vengeful God... outdone by cunning human beings keen to avoid his fury". The wrestling incident on the bank of a stream has been compared to the Greek mythology stories of Achilles' duel with the river-god Scamander and with Menelaus wrestling with the sea-god Prote

Misato Katsuragi

Misato Katsuragi is a fictional character from the Neon Genesis Evangelion franchise created by Gainax. She is the operations director at NERV with the rank of captain. In Rebuild of Evangelion Misato's rank is lieutenant colonel, her duties at NERV include acting as a field commander for the Eva pilots, issuing orders and relaying battle strategies as well as processing input from Ritsuko Akagi and the technicians monitoring the Evas. She handles many bureaucratic aspects of NERV's operations. At the beginning of the series, Misato first brings Shinji Ikari to NERV and is able to convince him to pilot the Eva Unit 01, she chooses to have Shinji move in with her rather than live alone, takes in Asuka Langley Soryu. As the series progresses, through her former lover Ryoji Kaji she learns the truth behind the Human Instrumentality Project and the depths of deception that NERV and SEELE have gone to keep the Project secret from her. Yoshiyuki Sadamoto found Misato's design the most difficult—conceiving her as an older "girl next door", in the military.

He wished to have Misato be a fashionable character, changing her clothes but found that his own lack of fashion sense made him unable to show this. Furthermore, he envisaged Misato as a "loser girl" who would be promiscuous and not take things seriously. Director Hideaki Anno described Misato as "a woman, twenty-nine, who lives life so as to allow the possibility of human touch, she protects herself by keeping relationships on the surface, by running away." He has described her as an adult Usagi Tsukino, with whom she shares a voice actress as well as hair design. The disparity between her professionalism on the job and her slovenliness at home, as well as her issues in her relationships with her father and Kaji and the ambiguous nature of her relationship with Shinji, ties into her psychological issues. While grateful to her father for saving her life, she admits to hating him, as he devoted his life to his work and neglected her and her mother, her reason for joining Nerv is related to her issues with her father.

Kaji implies in one discussion that Misato suffers from nightmares about her past, as he describes her as "sleeping uncomfortably." Misato admits "seeking her father in Kaji's embrace."Like many characters in Evangelion, Misato was named for a ship: the Katsuragi, an Unryū class World War II Japanese aircraft carrier. Her given name is from a heroine in Minako Narita's manga Aitsu. Misato drives a bright blue Renault Alpine A310, she is a devotee of this particular marque of car, as on her bedroom wall she has a poster of an earlier Alpine A110 shot from the back during a race. She carries a Koch USP as a sidearm, it is only seen a few times. At the beginning of the anime Misato is the Captain of Nerv's Tactical Operations Department. Under her command, most of the important decisions in the battles between the Evas against the angels are made, she takes complete responsibility of the possible outcomes, she assumes Shinji Ikari's guardianship when he arrives in Tokyo-3, Asuka's. Her civilian personality is seen to be quite loose and sloppy, but professionally she proves to have a great sense of leadership and duty.

Her loyalty to Nerv appears to be unbreakable, although apart from the main objective of annihilating the angels, she is unaware of Nerv's underlying intentions. After the success of "Operation Yashima," a high-cost military operation masterminded by her which consisted of using the entire energy system of Japan to destroy the fifth Angel, she was promoted to Major. Misato's only friend throughout the series is Dr. Ritsuko Akagi, she was Ryoji Kaji's girlfriend when the three of them were college students; as the story progresses, further detail of Misato's past are revealed, such as the fact that she was in Antarctica at the moment of the Second Impact, accompanying her father, Dr. Katsuragi, who masterminded the Katsuragi expedition related to the discovery of the first Angel, Adam. Prior to the unfolding of the Second impact, Dr. Katsuragi attempted to protect his daughter by placing her in a protective capsule seconds before the explosion; the capsule saved her life. Two years Misato is seen aboard the ship which brought Kozo Fuyutsuki and Gendo Ikari to the ruins of Antarctica to inspect the aftermath of the Second Impact.

Upon coming across her, Fuyutsuki is told. Her mutism went away when she began attending college, since she becomes more social and talkative. Misato's job experience prior to Nerv is not revealed, she chose to keep Pen Pen as a pet rather than let him be euthanized, refurnished a refrigerator to become his bedroom. Misato's relationship with Kaji is shown to be rather complicated, involving love, lust and resemblances to her father, apart from a pseudo-love triangle with Kaji and Ritsuko; as the story progresses, Misato learns that Kaji is a double-agent, working for Nerv and reporting to the Intelligence Department of Japan. Misato threatens to kill Kaji. However, Kaji is the

To the Public Danger

To the Public Danger is a 1948 British drama film directed by Terence Fisher and starring Dermot Walsh, Susan Shaw and Barry Letts. It was made at Highbury Studios as a second feature for release by the Rank Organisation. Like other Highbury productions, it offered acting opportunities for several of Rank's young contract stars; the film's sets were designed by Don Russell. It was based on a 1939 radio play by the writer Patrick Hamilton, encouraged to write the story as part of a government road safety campaign. Hamilton had himself been knocked down by a drunk driver; the story was updated and represents the post-war malaise with the use of noirish sequences. After making the film Fisher graduated to directing several more expensive productions for Gainsborough Pictures. While having a quiet drink together in a road house, a young working-class couple Fred and Nancy fall into the company of two raffish motorists including the self-confident Captain Cole. After a game of billiards and a number of drinks, they drive out on the road.

While spreeding along in the dark they hit. Although Fred wants to stop, Captain Cole insists on driving on. Nancy takes Cole's side and begins taunting Fred, who manages to escape and raise the alarm. A police investigation reveals that nobody had been injured in the collision with the bike, which had belonged to a poacher who didn't report the accident. In the meantime, Cole and the other passenger have suffered a crash of their own while drunken speeding, killing all three of them.
