Ladder

Additional Links
A series of steps used for ascent or descent. The Hebrew term may refer to steps carved out of rock or to steps constructed from wood, metal, stone, or even rope. The angels ascending and descending in Jacob's vision point to God's presence with Jacob (Genesis 28:12 ). Jesus' promise to Nathaniel points to Jesus as the one who incarnates God's presence (John 1:49-51 ).
