I've been studying some Scripture for a while, a lot of which has been Genesis. Soon after a friend took me to his Bible study, three of us were reading more and discussing different beliefs.

comment Why does Jacob say “because I saw God face to face”? (Gen 32:30)
Jacob had at least previously seen God “face-to-face”, back when the Lord stood there as Jacob was traveling and dreaming; he named the place Bethel, or “house of God”. (Gen 28:10-19) biblegateway.com/passage/… As for “divine”, it’s interesting that word is used in certain bibles. E.G. “You shall no longer be spoken of as Jacob, but as Israel, because you have contended with divine and humans beings and have prevailed” [Gen 32:29 (NAV )]

comment Are the periods in Revelation a single period of 3 and 1/2 years or something else?
I don't know if this is the type of answer you're looking for, so here's a comment for now. These 3-1/2 years could be references to the 3-1/2 years of drought Elijah had, shown via Luke 4:25 "But I tell you of a truth, many widows were in Israel in the days of Elias, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, when great famine was throughout all the land;" and also with James 5:17 "17 Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months.".

Are you also looking for anywhere else in Scripture (besides in Revelation and Daniel) when a 3-1/2 year stretch of time is mentioned, in those ways or any other?

Thanks. My remaining question would be about the flood having lasted more than one year, so his age would have changed over that stretch of time.
