He revealed to man ב
I am using the term 'revelation' to be more than merely propositional statements of vague shadows. Revelation is the personal engagement between two. The one communicating is ensuring that the receiver understands.
The bet ב represents that which can be known about God not merely being presented to man, but being presented in such a way that there is no excuse for not knowing.
- Ro 1:19 ¶ Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed [it] unto them.
Allegorically the bet is a door, and it's name mean's 'house'. Spelling out the name bet בת the letters mean "God revealed himself to man, and that revelation produced a life spontaneously returning to him." This is the house of God:
When you say bet is a door allegorically, you mean the shape of bet looks like a door?
- Heb 3:6 But Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end.
Further explain Heb 3:6. In earlier verses, the text talks about the builder of a house has greater honor than the house itself. So God is the builder of the house. Moses was the one living in the house bearing witness? so does that mean that Moses saw the revelation of God? Moses was the servant in God's house, Christ is the Son over God's house... i just wonder why Paul pointed out the specific roles.
As a prefix, the bet is translated 'in'. God has come into the world. He is not a God who is not near, but one who chooses to dwell with men:
- 2Ch 6:18 But will God in very deed dwell with men on the earth? behold, heaven and the heaven of heavens cannot contain thee; how much less this house which I have built!
The bet is the second letter. After God created, he revealed himself to man. He walked with Adam in the garden. It is not his desire to be hidden, but to be known in truth.
- Isa 43:10 Ye [are] my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I [am] he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.
