About the Alef Tav  

 We find the Alef  Tav  in the very first verse of scripture.

 In Beresheit 1:1 (Genesis 1:1) there are 7 Hebrew words but only 6 get translated.

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth

  Beresheit 1:1 בראשׁית ברא אלהים את השׁמים  ואת  הארץ׃

 

The word directly in the middle is “ET” and this one small word is spelled using the first and last letters of the Hebrew alphabet “ALEF  and TAV”. 

 Another place this small word is found is in Z’kharyah 12:10(Zechariah12:10)

….They shall look upon Alef Tav pierced….

Zec 12:10  .... והביטו אלי את אשׁר־דקרו ...

 

 We ask the question “Who or what is the Alef Tav in these verses? “

 In Hitgalut 1:8 ( Revelation 1:8) Yeshua tells Yochanan ( John)  He is the beginning and the ending, the “Alpha and Omega” The translators used the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet since they were translating from the Greek. Yet, we know Yeshua was a Jew and He would not have been speaking in Greek but in Hebrew. It should have been translated “I am the Alef and Tav.” using the first and last letter of the Hebrew alphabet.

Now let’s look at the first verse of the Gospel of Yochanan (John).

In the beginning (Beresheit) was the Word and the Word was with God

and God was the Word.  Yochanan 1:1 (John 1:1 translated from the Greek) 

What Word do we see in the beginning (Beresheit) ?  “Alef – Tav”

 

Who is the Word? Yeshua .

 Yeshua revealed Himself from the beginning to the end.

Psalm 119 , the longest Psalm in the scripture, is divided into 22 sections.

It titles each section by a letter of the Hebrew Alphabet from Alef to Tav.

Psalm 119 is all about the Torah- The Word of God. 

Yeshua is the Living Torah
