The invisible aleph א

The rabbis ask the question "Why does the Torah [1] begin with the second letter of the alphabet rather than with the first?" [2]

The Greeks (and probably you) think that this is a stupid question, but only because you do not understand how to read the mystery which was hidden from the beginning [3]. The early Jews knew how to read it but their answer misdirects us because the true meaning of the aleph cannot be admitted since it will reveal Christ as the creator. The primary metaphor of the aleph is: God spoke and created the heavens and the earth.

The reason they cannot admit this is because the first three visible letters spell bar-a. 'Bar' is translated 'son' and later it will be shown to be the Son of God. It says: The Son (of God) spoke and created the heavens and the earth. [4] It is easy to see why they want to hide this.

The aleph is a silent letter and here at the beginning of the Torah it is also invisible. From this, the Berean discerns that when God spoke and created the heavens and the earth, he did it when there was no one there to see or hear him do it.

Job 38:4 ¶ Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding.
Isa 43:10 ... before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.
