    The dream and the dreamer..used in reference to Jacob, Isaiah and so many in the OT. I think dreams are often as important in helping us translate the Word as the direct facts of a story. Just as a song can create word pictures and poetry deepens our understanding of the author’s goal message. In the case of the dream, when faithfully revealed, more is passed on than ones words or life.
