Jacob stole Esau’s blessing by touching his thigh so Esau probably had a real thigh issue!
God himself touched Jacob’s thigh
Therefore Jacob’s thigh must be sacred. I would hate to hear what gets brought on one’s family for defiling the thigh.
I know being a mother brings out the lioness in me!
I seem to remember Jacob himself paying a high price for his stealing Esau’s blessing!
It is a good job that I live among such food sports not sore losers.
Jacob wrestled with God and God touched his thigh, which is why I assume Joseph received the blessing but touching Jacob’s thigh,
