Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
In an earlier blog I mentioned that there was an Aleph and Tav (the first and last letters in the Hebrew alphabet) not translated in this verse. In the greek this would be the Alpha and Omega. The Aleph represents God, the first letter, the beginning. Aleph means strength. The Tav is like our “T”. The word Tav itself means mark which God says in Ezekial 9:4 would be placed upon the righteous, a cross.
I want to focus on the word create. It is spelt Bet, Resh, Aleph – bara. The first two letters spell bar which means son. Therefore, Bartimaeus was not the name of the blind man that Jesus healed in Mark 10. He was the son of Timaeus.
Now, let’s go back to the Hebrew word for create, bara. If bar means “son” and the last letter, Aleph, represents God as was mentioned already, could it not be said that very word create is the Son of God. No, there is no evidence that God created the Son of God. Rather, God, the Son of God, created.
This falls in line with what Paul said, that all things were created by Him, Colossians 1:16.
So, not only do we have the silent Aleph-Tav (Alpha and Omega), we also have the Son of God within the Hebrew text, in the word create.
