About: “In the beginning God created אֵת”

Living Word of God  who created all things “In the beginning God created  אֵת” 

Scripture reveals the Lord Jesus Christ as both the Word of God and the Alpha Omega (), using the names of the First and Last Letters of the Greek Alphabet. These are Twenty-Four Greek, or Twenty-Two Hebrew Letters.

The infinite set of all possible Letter combinations therefore lists everything that could ever be named, so that the totality of any Alphabet, represented by its First and Last Letters, inherently forms a symbol of wholeness and completeness. In English we say “from A to Z,” and in Hebrew, “from Aleph to Tav.”

The connections between the Word, the Alphabet, and Everything are inherent in the symbol of Alpha Omega (and the corresponding Hebrew Aleph Tav), and are easy to understand without reference to the Biblical witness. But when viewed in light of the revelation of Jesus Christ as Alpha Omega, we immediately recognize that this symbol, by its very nature, expresses the fundamental Christian doctrine that He is the Living Word of God by whom “all things were made” (John 1:3). This is why the symbol is so powerful, and one of the reasons the Creator chose it to identify Himself. These ideas inevitably carry over onto the Bible, which is the written analog (a kind of incarnation) of the Second Person of the Godhead whose “name is called the Word of God” (Rev 19:13).

In the Old Testament, God never explicitly identified Himself with Aleph and Tav () as He did with Alpha and Omega () in the New, but He did use the same style of language three times in Isaiah, referring to Himself as the first and the last:

The Aleph-Tav, is thought to be a contraction of  אוֹת (oth) Hebrew word OTH that means “sign, constellation, star or banner”. A symbol standing for something else therefore an ensign like the banners for each of the 12 tribes

Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God. Isaiah 44:6
