Lesson 2: Hebrew Tav

Let us take a look at the last letter of the Hebrew alphabet, the Tav which looks like this:

Long ago, during proto-canaanite time, this letter originally looked like a cross.
It slowly changed over time to look like a T or a small cross in most languages.
Definition: a mark or a sign.
Symbolic of: ownership, to seal, to make a covenant, to join 2 things together, to make a sign.

Here are the some related scriptures with the word SIGN or SIGNS:
Isaiah 7:14
Therefore the Adonai(Lord) Himself will give you a sign:
Behold, a virgin will be with child and bear a son,
and she will call His name Immanuel. (Elohim with us)
In Genesis 1:14-19 We read how Elohim (God) created the sun, moon and the stars on the fourth day to serve
as signs to mark the seasons, days and years.
And Elohim said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the sky to separate the day from the night,
and let them serve as signs to mark seasons and days and years ...
Revelation 22:16
Elohim sent Yeshua as a sign from Heaven. Yeshua is called the Bright Morning Star
I am the Root and Offspring of David, the Bright Morning Star.
Malachi 4:2
Yeshua is also called the Sun of Righteousness and in John 8:12, he is the Light of the World.

Scriptures with the word SEAL or MARK:
2 Corinthians 1:21-22
He anointed us, set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Ruach (Spirit) in our hearts as a deposit. (A deposit is a down payment, a guarantee, or a pledge. In this case, the full payment is to come later as we receive new eternal bodies).
Revelation 7:3
"Do not harm the earth or the sea or the trees until we have sealed the bond-servants of Elohenu (our God) on their foreheads."

The lesson continues... next we will talk again about both letters, Alef and Tav, and how to find Yeshua hidden in the text of Genesis... how the Hebrew scriptures reveal Yeshua in the beginning of the creation!
