The name of God is an incredible discovery to anyone with the eyes to see, and a heart to perceive. As noted, it has the power to change the way a man sees, the way he thinks, the way a man believes, and the way a man lives–in just one revelation of His Name. But before we get to the actual name of God, let’s learn just a couple basics about the Hebrew language, so that we can better understand the name of God from a Hebrew mindset, and honor the name of God from the Hebrew perspective in which it is written.
The Source of Our Alphabet
The ancient Hebrew language was originally a visual or pictograph language, like ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics, and Chinese characters, yet much simpler—and much more versatile. The Hebrew Aleph-Beth (alpha-bet), contained 22 pictures. Each Letter 1) a word in itself with its own individual name and meaning, 2) it was also a picture, and as you know one picture is worth 1000 words, 3) it also as had its own sound and breath; 4) and finally each picture letter had its own numerical value, and therefore acted as a number. As a result the combination of all four qualities of each letter could produce a profound depth and breadth of meaning and insight. The first letter “A” in Hebrew is also a Word, “Aleph.” It is the picture of an Ox (head) = א (See Table Below). It is the first letter, so it also represents the number 1. The meaning of the Ox head character is simple: A Strong Leader, The Head, The First. It only takes one look for all the meaning behind the letter to come to life. It is memorable. It is inescapable. Try to forget it and it just comes back to you clear as day. The ox, is a strong leader. It is the head. It is first. What could be clearer or simpler? The second letter in the Hebrew alphabet is “B” or “Beth” (as in Bethlehem = the House of Bread). This letter/word is a picture of a Home = ב (See table below), or rather the floor plan of a tent which clearly represents a Hebrew home. This makes perfect sense because the original Hebrew tribes were shepherds taking care of sheep and goats, and cattle (oxen). The first letter, “Aleph,” the picture of an Ox = א: Is the first letter a child will learn when beginning his childhood education, Learning how to read and write. The second letter Beth is commonly the second letter you will learn in Hebrew alphabet.
Commonly, “AB” is the first word you learn in Hebrew is: ב א (See Table above). And it consists of the first two letters in the Hebrew alphabet.
Can you guess the meaning of Aleph—Beth?
What or Who would be the #1, Strong Leader of the Home?
Just another reminder exactly what God says the name of God is:
