When drawing the lamed, a yod extending to a vav begins above the upper horizontal to a point below the upper horizontal. The lower section in a small kaf (Son of God) which takes a turn into the grave.
From the heart of the Father (above the line) what can be known of God (upper horizontal) is brought closer to man (lower position). The lamed represents teaching. God makes what can be known about him more accessible. The primary topic is the cross.
The lamed first appears in Elohim אלהים meaning 'God separated from his people because they don't understand'. It also means 'His sheep hear his voice'. El אל means God. Specifically, he is the creator א who teaches ל.
He is not a God who created and walked away. He teaches because his people do not understand and he desires for them to know him.
Jesus said he kingdom of heaven was like leaven ; and leaven is 'teaching'.
Jerusalem means 'teaching of peace' and the New Jerusalem means the 'new teaching of peace'. When Jesus preached the sermon on the mount, he said "You have heard it said... but I say" as he ushered in the new teaching of peace, the New Jerusalem, the kingdom of heaven.
Culminating creation is the day when teaching is no longer required, because all will know him.
