Genesis 36:3 is called Bashemath:
And Jacob went out
Bethel becomes, because of Jacob's vision there, one of the significant places of Scripture. To the Christian it stands for a realization, however imperfect, of the heavenly and spiritual contents of faith, answering to Paul's prayer in Ephesians 1:17-23. Dispensationally, the scene speaks of Israel the nation, cast out of the Land of Promise because of evil-doing there, but holding the promise of restoration and blessing ; Genesis 28:15; Deuteronomy 30:1-10. To "an Israelite indeed" Christ speaks of Jacob's vision as to be fulfilled in the Son of man (cf) ; Genesis 28:12; John 1:47-51.
