Luke 3:33

Jacob (Hebrew : Standard ; Septuagint Greek: ; "heel" or "leg-puller"), also known as Israel (Hebrew : Standard Yisra, Isr; Septuagint Greek :; "persevere with God"; ), was the third patriarch of the Jewish people, and ancestor of the twelve tribes of Israel , named after ten of his twelve sons, as well as the two sons of his son Joseph.
In the Hebrew Bible he is the son of Isaac and Rebecca , the grandson of Abraham and Sarah and of Bethuel , and the twin brother of Esau . He had twelve sons and one daughter by his two wives , Leah and Rachel , and their maidservants, Bilhah and Zilpah . The children were Reuben , Simeon , Levi , Judah , Dan , Naphtali , Gad , Asher , Issachar , Zebulun , daughter Dinah , Joseph , and Benjamin . Before the birth of Benjamin, Jacob is renamed "Israel" by an angel, the name after which the modern nation of Israel is named.
As a result of a severe famine in Canaan , Jacob resettled his whole family in Egypt , in the Land of Goshen , at the time when his son Joseph was viceroy. Jacob died there 17 years later, and Joseph carried Jacob's remains to the land of Canaan, where he gave them stately burial in the same Cave of Machpelah as were buried Abraham, Sarah, Isaac, Rebecca and Jacob's wife Leah (Genesis 49:29-50:14 ).
