PHB: vav - Word family extension אג-דנר
The Word Family extension is an extended set of letters to the word family. Previously, the vav was defined as 'the Word'. This set of letters extends the vav in various ways. The last three:דנר, will have families of their own.
Aleph א God spoke and created the heavens and the earth
The aleph א is a diagonal vav with two yods. The yod represents the creation, but there are two of them. We discern that when there are two things, they are two aspects of one thing.
As you draw the aleph, first draw the vav saying "God spoke and created...". When drawing the two yods say, "the heavens and the earth."
Recall that when we learn language, the same thing is said in many ways to help us understand the idea. The aleph represents creation by separation. As you draw it, you can say several things which represent the idea of the aleph.
- The firmament... divided the waters above and below. [s 3]
- There was a war... between heaven and earth
- God separated... Holiness and Love
The number value of the aleph is 1, but it's name means 1000.
The aleph contains the unspeakable name of God יוי ee-oo--ee which sounds like Yahweh. It is unspeakable because the aleph is silent letter.
Gimel ג He pursued them
The gimel is a vav with a yod hanging off the bottom like a leg extended. The vav comes down the side of the Square Letter Template, representing love coming to man [s 4], and the yod extending to the left is a little bit of Holiness being revealed. The purpose of the law is not to squish you, but to help explain who God is. He gave us his love, then pursued us with his holiness.
The word gimel means 'camel'. If you look it up in a dictionary, they look like two words in English, but the are the same Hebrew word גמל. It also means 'recompense' like a judge giving you what you deserve. And it means 'poor one' [v 2]
Dalet ד with a command
The dalet ד is formed by drawing two vavs at right angles. This is different from the rosh ר which has two vavs joined with a curve. The upper horizontal vav collects up what can be known about God as it travels from left to right. The vertical vav represents that knowledge coming to man. [q 7] [a 7]
The right angle of the dalet ד means that the information is not complete, like a pipe that is pinched rather than smoothly transitioned. We say that it is a command. As a metaphor, it represents the command itself, the result of the command, or the response to the command. God commanded the creation into existence. The universe is the result of the command, and testifies to to the invisible nature of God. [s 5]
But the command does not reveal all about God. The revelation of God is the rosh ר. We will come back to this. Though in English three words are nearly synonyms, we use them in a technical way: command, revelation, teaching. The dalet ד is the command. The revelation or rosh ר contains personality. And teaching or lamed ל is a shared heart.
Dalet means 'poor one' and 'door'. [v 3] As you draw it say, "a commandment" or "was commanded".
Nun נ The Son of Man
The nun נ is a vav with a yod off the bottom like the gimel ג except the yod is horizontal. The word nun means 'fish' and it represents the Son of Man. [v 4] In Greek the fish represents "Jesus Messiah God's Son Savior" as an anagram.
The nun נ stands in contrast to the kof כ, which represents the Son of God. The difference is the length of the horizontals. The kof says that the Son of God was fully God and fully man by nature. The nun says that the Son of Man was partially God and partially man by choice. He chose to limit himself by the flesh [s 6] in order to be qualified to be our high priest [s 7] [q 8] [a 8] [q 9] [a 9]
When you draw the nun say, "The Son of Man".
Rosh ר revealed
The rosh is like the dalet ד but it has the rounded corner; it takes on and includes personality. The word rosh means destitute. [v 5] It is why people fall on their faces when God reveals himself. They are destitute before him. When God walked with Adam, or met Moses on the mountaintop, these were rosh experiences.
With a dalet ד experience, you cannot ask questions; it is a command. With a rosh ר experience you can dialog and know. Say "reveals, revealed, or revealing" when drawing the 'rosh ר.
