Esau was angry with Jacob for stealing his blessing from Isaac. He even wanted to kill him! So Jacob ran off to stay with his uncle, Laban. On the way, he stopped for a rest. While he slept, he had a dream of a stairway to heaven filled with angels, with God at the top.
God made the same 3 BIG promises he'd made to Abraham to Jacob of many descendants to fill the promised land, and enjoy great blessing. Ultimately, God fulfilled his promises through Jesus, who is in Jacob's family tree.
