The significance of the Hebrew letters “Aleph” and “Tav”

The Hebrew letters “Aleph” and “Tav” appeared throughout the Old Testament Scriptures and was not translated or readable. However, if we go back to ancient Hebrew pictograms, something significant can be derived just from the two letters themselves.

Jesus (Ox at the cross) was mentioned in the Old Testament in the first verse of the Book of Genesis that was written probably 1000-2000 years ago before He came to dwell with man and died for our sins at the cross…

Aleph (Alpha in Greek) in ancient Hebrew pictogram is a symbol of an ox (God/leader/strength/sacrifice)

Tav (Omega in Greek) is a symbol of a cross (covenant/mark/sign)

… and Jesus confirms that He is the Aleph and Tav when He says this of Himself in the New Testament in the Book of Revelation 22:13 “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.”

Hope you are blessed by this post as you behold Jesus in the Scriptures!

  1. Thankyou. I also saw a wonderful thing explained by someone.. He is the Aleph/Tav ie the Aleph (Eternal Father) who achieved both the “end” and the “beginning” on the Tav (cross)

  2. Lev 6:25 Look at the sin offering 2 times in the Hebrew its spelled He Hhet Tet Aleph Tav in other words , He means Behold -look – reveal , Hhet Tet means sin , outside – snake , Aleph is a Ox Head means leader – power – strong , TAV is a CROSS the Word is all most ever where . I cry a lot now , Because I study the Hebrew ancient letters , they teach me the truth spelled Aleph Mem Tav .


  3. First, your post is no bad.
    Clear thoughts.
    If we go by the truth.
    Greek doesn’t apply to the Torah or the Teachings of our Creator YAHUAH, yes that is his name, Jeovah is wrong.
    No letter J in any Hebrew alphabet.
    If you look carefully the old ancient pictographs the name of our Creator is there and our Messiah YAHUSHA is also there.
    Jesus, is pagan Greek, Roman miss translation


  4. I am leading a study where we are looking at ancient zodiac symbols found in the night sky. Psalm 19, the heavens declare the glory of God. Starts with Virgo the virgin and ends with Leo the King. The 9th symbol, Taurus is the head of an Ox. Before the bible we have today, God would share the Good News in many different ways. The night sky one of them Heb 1:1
