Jacob, spoilers from Ab Aeterno

Spoilers below...

So, is it just me, or did Jacob seem more bitter/paranoid/angry/mean compared to the other episodes in which he has appeared? He snapped at Alpert concerning the statue, he practically drowned Alpert to prove a point, and seemed to badger Alpert about the knife, MIB, etc. Is Jacob perhaps growing as a person as well? I've never seen him so blunt. He's usually quite detached.

Also, I thought the Jacob/Alpert fight might have been symbolic of the biblical Jacob's fight with God, although that just might be my Christian upbringing coming through.
