  1. 1. בְּרֵאשִׁית בָּרָא אֱלֹהִים אֵת הַשָּׁמַיִם וְאֵת הָאָרֶץ   This is the first sentence in the Bible Genesis 1:1 Beresheet bara Elohiym et ha-shamiym v’et ha-arets In English we know it as: In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth
  2. 2. בְּרֵאשִׁית בָּרָא אֱלֹהִים אֵת הַשָּׁמַיִם וְאֵת הָאָרֶץ <ul><li>Note that there are seven words in this scripture.

  3. 3. Revelation 1:8 says: <ul><li>I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the Ending, says the Lord, the One who is, and who was, and who is coming, the Almighty. </li></ul><ul><li>Is this the way Yeshua (Jesus) would have said it? or… </li></ul>
  4. 4. Aleph Tav <ul><li>… because he was a Hebrew man talking to John a Hebrew himself, would he have rather said “I am the Aleph Tav”? Using the first and last Hebrew letters? </li></ul><ul><li>Read John 1:1-5 </li></ul>
  5. 5.

  7. 7. The Hebrews <ul><li>In the Mishkan or the tabernacle the center burner of the lampstand (menorah) was to burn continuously. This is a picture of the life and light of men that shines in the darkness. </li></ul><ul><li>In the next slide note Gen.1:1 again, then note the location of the center burner on the menorah in relation to the Aleph Tav. Note the position of the Aleph Tav to Elohiym! </li></ul><ul><li>Then go back and read John 1:1-5 </li></ul>
