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.

Yod י

The yod is the smallest letter. Imagine that a blank page represents God in all his perfection. God is! There is no introduction to God. He just is.[1] If we touch the page and draw on it, it no longer represents God.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. [2]

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. [3] The 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.

The yod represents the first thought of creation. It contains everything that God wished to accomplish. The yod not only contains all the physical elements of time, chance and matter, 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; 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.

This first thing that springs forth from the yod is the alphabet. When formed, each letter starts by first drawing a yod. Then from the alphabet, words are formed; and using the words, God commanded all else to spring into existence. [4]

The name 'yod' means hand which is a metaphor for works. Creation is the work of God.

Vav ו

The vav ו is a yod י with the lower portion extended downward to the baseline of the Square Letter Template. When used as a prefix it is translated and. It is a metaphor for the first words that God spoke into the void created by the yod: "Let there be light" [5]

The vav, representing this declaration, distinguishes between the Darkness and the Light, but it also joins them the same way the word and does in English. Some say that the vav 'clarifies' things; distinguishing between two things that are associated as one. [6]

The vav is the Word which was spoken into the void. That Word became flesh as Christ Jesus [7]

All of the other letter are made up of yods, vavs and corners. Corners will be examined later.

Zayin ז

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.

Final nun ן

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

The nun נ, which will be examined later, is the Son of Man. As a final nun ן it is interpreted that the Son of Man died (or must die).

Final kof ך

The final kof is not part of the family. The upper horizontal is too long and will be examined more closely as part of the Dalet family. The Word family has four members, and the word 'word' has four letters.

Yah יו

Yah is the short name for Jehovah, or Yahweh. I indicates that he thought to create י, and then he spoke to create ו.

Joab Yow’ab יואב - Jehovah יו is father אב
Joach 'Yow’ach יואח - Jehovah יו is brother אח
Joel 'Yow’el יואל - Jehovah יו is God אל

Jotsin יוזן

If the letters of the Word family are read as a word, it is a word that does not exist. It still forms a pneumnemonic.

Jotsin Yow’zin יוזן - Jehovah יו is diverse kinds זן

The word does not exist because God IS NOT diverse kinds. God is ONE.

Feed the bride יון ז

The zayin ז has a different top from the other letters. If we pull it out of sequence, it leaves zuwn יון which means 'feed'. Now we have - feed יון the bride ז. Feeding is a metaphor for teaching and learning. The first letter family tells us that we will be taught.


  1. The same is true of Genesis 1:1
  2. Ex 20:25 And if thou wilt make me an altar of stone, thou shalt not build it of hewn stone: for if thou lift up thy tool upon it, thou hast polluted it.
  3. 1Ki 8:27 ... behold, the heaven and heaven of heavens cannot contain thee;...
  4. The phrase "God said..." is used ten times during creation as He created all using words. See Ten sayings of creation
  5. Ge 1:3 ¶ And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
  6. Darkness represents the love/grace of God, and light represents his holiness. They are two aspects of the one God. Notice that Darkness was not created. If darkness represents evil as so many have taught, then God dwelt in evil before he created the light. This is an indefensible position. God covers sinners with love/grace and does not destroy them. They live in a condition requiring grace. They live in darkness. God commands them to be holy; to sin no more, and come into the light. Darkness, as any metaphor has multiple expressions. God IS love but in him there is nothing that requires grace, so we can say that love is not required or presumed upon in the Trinity. It just is. It is not a contradiction to say with John: 1Jo 1:5 ¶ This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
  7. Joh 1:1 ¶ In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. Joh 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
