The Ladder: Part IV

This ladder was like no other.

Its facade extended upwards, eventually fading from sight. All the others had a top. An end. you climbed up only to fall short and crawl back down... down.

But not this one.

Anticipation and excitement welled up within him as he realized what this ladder brought with it. Access.

It was the ladder to heaven.

Laughing and weeping uncontrollably, he placed his foot upon the first rung and began to ascend...

(Genesis 28:12, John 1: 43-51)
These verses gave me the idea for this story. I absolutely love it how the New Testament fulfills the Old!
