I hope this post does not duplicate anything previously done here, but I'm still fairly new here, and have little sense of the history of the discussions here. I got the germ of this idea from the religion sub-forum over at abovetopsecret.com. I am one of the Christians over there, locked in endless debate with the skeptics and scoffers, who seems locked into a mindset, but then, I'm sure they would say the same about us.
First, a chart of the Hebrew alphabet, but not from the usual standpoint. This chart, which I cut and pasted from somewhere on the www, is concerned with the very ancient, "primitive" meanings of the letters.
NAME OF LETTERS INTERPRETATION OF SYMBOL, WORD, OR LETTER Rendered in English
ALEPH An Ox or Bullock, a sacrifice or at-one-ment. Its numerical value is ONE.
BETH A House or Tent, a dwelling or tabernacle, in, among, within, etc.
GIMEL A Camel, like a camel's hump, heap, collect, high.
DALETH A Door or Gate, lid, valve.
HE Lo, see, behold, (therefore) a lattice or window for that purpose.
VAV A Peg, Nail or Hook, therefore, wherefore, then, that, in order that, so that, etc.
ZAYIN A Weapon, a shining sword, brightness, light.
CHETH An Enclosure, fenced in, ark, refuge.
TETH A Serpent, like a serpent, rolled, twisted, entwined.
YOD The Hand, the right hand, to strike or pierce, a stroke, a blow.
KAPH The Hollow or Palm of the Hand, curved, concave, a valley or basin.
LAMEDH A Goad, towards, into, unto, until, upon, even to, besides, etc.
MEM Water, waves, a flood.
NUN A Fish, to sprout, to put forth, Noah, (as one from whom all are propagated).
SAMEKH A Fulcrum, prop, lever, to help, to sustain, to uphold, the hinge of a mason's apron, a ladder or line connecting the lower with the higher, the Holy Ghost.
AYIN The Eye, to flow, to flow out, a fountain.
PE The Mouth, to breathe, to blow, a side or quarter of the heavens, region, part, quarter.
TSADHE A Scythe or Reaping-hook, just, pertains to the harvest or retribution. Tsadok is Jupiter or justice (in Sanscrit, karma).
QOPH Occiput, back of the head, to move in a circle.
RESH Head, first, foremost, beginning, front.
Rosh Means a foremost or most northern nation.
SHIN Tooth, a sharp rock, cliff, crag. The Almighty (Shaddi) if seen from the front, but Satan if seen from behind.
TAU A Sign or Mark, cross, a symbol, a token.
There are three letters of interest to us here, Yod, He, and Vav. [I wish I could place the Hebrew letter form by the English name, but I have not been successful in downloading a useful Hebrew font onto my Word for Mac program. Maybe somebody can give me a hint.] Anyway, if you take the Tetragrammaton, YHVH, or Yod, He, Vav, He, and simply plug in those "primitive" letter meanings, you get: The Hand, Behold, the Nail, Behold. Read it backwards in the Hebrew manner, and it means "Behold the Nail, Behold the Hand," hmmmm...could that be Jesus?!
Jesus is the God of the OT!
