One of the most important archeological finds concerning the Bible was the collection of manuscripts known as the Dead Sea Scrolls. Though not all the manuscripts are texts from the Bible, those manuscripts have demonstrated that the Bible we received though the ages by way of scribal copies, have remained virtually unchanged, even though many letters of the alphabet appear to be the same, and could be easily mistaken. Observe how similar these five letters appear: יוזןך. The process to produce a copy of scripture was so rigorous that precise rules for forming each letter were enforced through ritual and a quality inspection. [1]

Yod י New creation

Imagine that a blank page represents God in all his perfection. God is! There is no introduction to God. He just is. [2] If we touch the page and draw on it, it no longer represents God. If we put our hand to it, in God's estimation, we pollute it. God said not to make a graven image. [a] [b] [q 1] [a 1]

Now consider the blank page as representing God before he decided to create. Where can God create the universe? There is no container for God. He is too big. [c] [q 2] [a 2] The blank page that we hold up must be imagined to be infinitely wide and infinitely tall. Where can God create? There is no place which God does not fill already. [q 3] [a 3]

The yod י represents the first thought of creation and is the smallest letter of the Hebrew alphabet. [d] It contains everything that God wished to accomplish. The yod י not only contains all the physical elements of time, chance and matter, like scientific the notion of the Big Bang, but it also contains the revelation of the personality and character of God, as well as the potential for every thought that has been thought or spoken.

When God first started to create, he had to open a void within himself; [e] a place to put things. There was no place else to do it. He made room for us within himself. This is represented by a yod on the page. Everything else that was created was created in and from this void. [q 4] [a 4]

This first thing that springs forth from the yod is the alphabet. Each letter starts by first drawing a yod י, then a vav ו. All the other letters are yods and vavs combined. Then from the alphabet, words are formed; and using the words, God commanded all else to spring into existence. [3] [q 5] [a 5]


The name yod יד means 'hand' which is a metaphor for works. [f] [v 1] Creation is the work of God.

¢ Vav ו Distinguished

Zayin ז The Bride

The zayin is drawn up the left side of the Square Letter Template. It meets a yud at the top like a tiny 'T'. It differs from the vav ו which descends from a yod י. It is that which returns to God. Alone, or with other elements it usually describes the bride of Christ. The word zayin means 'prostitute'. The bride of Christ (the church) was a prostitute (sinner) that was made in to the virgin (pure bride). [v 2] [q 6]. [a 6]

Final nun ן The Son of Man died and returned to Glory

The final nun is used for the nun נ at the end of a word. The final nun ן is drawn as a vav extending below the lower horizontal of the Square Letter Template. The vav ו stops at the lower horizontal. They are difficult to tell apart when they are seen in isolation. The key to discerning them is the baseline of the word.

The nun נ, which will be examined later means 'fish', and represents the Son of Man [v 3] [q 7]. [a 7] As a final nun ן, it is interpreted that the Son of Man died (or must die). Because it is in 'final' state, the final nun suggests that in resurrection, Christ was restored to glory [g] [v 4]

Final kof ך

The final kof ך is not part of the word family. The upper horizontal is too long and will be examined more closely as part of the Dalet ד family. The Word family has four members yod י, vav ו, zayin ז , and final nun ן.

Yah יו God

Yah is the short name for Jehovah, or Yahweh [v 5]. It indicates that he thought to create י, and then he spoke to create ו.

Yaab Yow’ab יואב - Jehovah יו is father אב [v 6] [v 7]

Yaach Yow’ach יואח - Jehovah יו is brother אח [v 8] [v 9]

Yael Yow’el יואל - Jehovah יו is God אל [v 10] [v 11]

The mired bride יון ז

The zayin ז has a different top from the other letters. If we pull it out of sequence, it leaves yaven יון which means 'mired' [v 12]. Now we have - mired יון bride ז. As seen before zayin means 'prostitute'; she is mired.


  1. Are there scriptures that indicate that God is represented by untouched things?
  2. Is God in everything and everywhere, or is everything and everywhere in God?
  3. What is the theological word used to describe that there is nowhere where God isn't?
  4. Since rooms, are formed by the geometry of the walls and ceilings of the house, where do the properties and attributes of the rooms come from?
  5. Which has the power: God, or the words he used?
  6. Can you think of women in the Bible who represent (literally or figuratively) the virgin bride who was also a prostitute (Ex. Mary was pure, but her name means 'rebellious' and she had the gossip surrounding her of her being a prostitute)
  7. Which came first: The Greek symbol of a fish to represent Christ, or the Hebrew letter nun to represent the Son of Man?


  1. The pneumnemonics are not designed to help you wite in kosher Hebrew, but to learn the letters in their natural and theological form.
  2. The same is true of Genesis 1:1
  3. The phrase "God said..." is used ten times during creation as He created all using words.
