This study shares some exciting and unique “findings” in Scripture about the first and last letters of the Hebrew alphabet, Aleph and Tav (in Greek Alpha and Omega) which are shown here in the modern and ancient of Hebrew script. These letters are recognized as the Greek “Alpha and Omega”. Everyone's heard of them - but did you know that the original Aleph and Tav אֵת literally get their meaning from the ancient Paleo Hebrew as "the strength of the covenant"?

In this study you will learn about the significance of the letters Aleph & Tav and why they are The Herald of Messiah that is found throughout the verses of the ancient Hebrew scrolls we know today as the Tanakh or the Scriptures of the Old Testament.

The study uses the Hebrew Masoretic text as a source text which is recognized by Judaism as well as Christianity as being an authoritative resource of the ancient scrolls of God's word. However, keep in mind that the Masoretic Text are “copies of copies” and they do not actually represent the “original” script of the writings of Moses or the Prophets.

That fact is what brought this study about.

In fact, the Masoretic text is based on the Babylonian script that I am told may have been a result the conquest and captivity of the people of Judah, Benjamin and the Levites by Nebuchadnezzar the king and ruler of Babylon. During that 70 year captivity the ancient form of paleo-Hebrew script was seemingly lost but not forever. That is in fact how the pictographic meaning of the original scrolls has been hidden to so many since the adopted Babylonian Aramaic script was not the original ancient lettering used by Moses some 900 years earlier. This is important because our English letters and words do not portray the original graphic meanings of Hebrew, but we can learn a lot more if we will look back to the original.

Paleo-Hebrew fragments of the Torah were found among the Dead Sea Scrolls. The original paleo-Hebrew alphabet originally was derived from an ancient Phonecian script known and is known as Ktav Ivri. This ancient lettering was never lost. In fact, it has always been used exclusively by the Samaritans. They have continued to use this script from ancient times until the present day!!

This may all sound a bit mundane, but believe me it is not! Since the Hebrew letters Aleph Tav begin their story in the very first verse of the Bible yet they are not known to millions of English readers of the Bible it is time that they be known because the אֵת serve as two witnesses over 7,000 times throughout the Scriptures.

The original pictographic "Paleo" Hebrew script is a real eye opener and reveals much more about the root meaning of each Hebrew letter. I pray this study will show you why you need to learn more about the Hebrew language to better understand the depth of each word found in the Scriptures that have been given to us by our Creator.

Most of us read "English" translations of the bible that are from translations of the "Greek" Septuagint which were translated from the original "Hebrew" manuscripts over 2,000 years ago. Due to that translation “babel” there is much to re-learn. Like the old saying, “lost in the translation” it is almost as if Aleph Tav is an infinite sign, “the word” that is just waiting to be discovered. In that way, perhaps the Scriptures can be better understood and the Messiah can be “seen“ more clearly throughout all the “Word” of God.

Many Bible students are familiar with the “Greek” Alpha & Omega as illustrating a picture of “the beginning” and “the end”, but it is critical to study the original Hebrew alphabet and look into the meanings of the ancient letters Aleph Tav, the first and last letters of the Hebrew "alephbet".

It is critically important to learn as much as possible about the Hebrew language to better understand Scripture with a Hebrew “mindset” which differs greatly from a Greek manner of thinking. Further, these two letters provide great significance as to their "seemingly"
