Jacob, Leah, and Rachel

The story of Jacob finding a wife seems prophetic.  Leah seems to represent Israel, to which Jacob was first tricked into marrying.  Then he gets to marry Rachel (the church).  Then after Joseph is born, he works at leaving Laban his deceitful uncle (Satan?).  Through shrewd mating, he separates the sheep and the goats(?).  He gets three days separation.  (Three thousand years?).  An interesting discussion of this:   http://www.patheos.com/blogs/kermitzarleyblog/2013/06/jacob-a-type-of-jesus-two-advents/
