Testament of Jacob
The Testament of Jacob is a work now regarded as part of the Old Testament apocrypha. The Testament of Jacob begins with Jacob being visited by the archangel Michael and told of his impending death, and then being taken on a visit to heaven, where he first sees the torture of the sinful dead, and then meets the deceased Abraham. In this Testament it is the angels that Jacob meets who deliver the bulk of the sermonising passages.

IMPORTANT: All Scripture text has context and background. Scripture should never be read literally or in isolation. Always seek clarification from religious scholars and teachers. In general, Scripture adheres to four principles: (1) Literal Meaning - What the Scripture says (2) Historical Setting - The story events; how the Scripture was understood in its time (3) Grammar - The surrounding sentence and paragraph; textual context (4) Synthesis - A comparison with similar Scripture to give a better contextual understanding
