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.”
