Ancient Hebrew, proving original meanings of the Father's love

Q:3. Prove the original meaning of Words..

Here is the Ancient Hebrew meaning for "father", the "strong (one at) home". Doesn't this sound so much easier to understand?

The Hebrew word for mother is the "strong flow". (Hebrew letters read right to left, but we Westerns read letters left to right) Many times, we will never know why Nomadic tribes made the spellings of their word meanings the way they did. (After all these words were composed over 5,000 years ago.) Jeff Benner suspects that when cattle hides were boiled, they made a strong glue, hence a mother is the "strong glue" in the home. Perhaps. In any case, pictographs for each letter do help us appreciate the word meaning.

Surprisingly there are two Hebrew words for love.

We can tell from the pictographs for "Father" this "love" word meaning, is about a "father's love" and you would be correct. This is the most powerful word for our heavenly Father's love, known in Greek as "agape", but in Hebrew it is "ahab".

But there is another Hebrew word for love:-

This is a love a person shows to another person, as the pictograph letters suggest...We could call this type of love "fellowship love".

See studies on love, if you want more about this.

The author terms these two types of love, "maleness-love" and "femaleness-love" not because they are always pointing to gender, because they are NOT, but because they seem to come from a design aspect when "the Family of GOD" created mankind "gender male and gender female", with family in mind.

  • 1:26 � And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness:
  • Ge 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

    The man Adam was created and formed, but Eve was built out from the man, not created or formed. Thus femaleness-love is a part of maleness-love, and they come together as a harmonious unit.

    Here we see the word "echad", which means "the strong outside door".

  • Ge 2:24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one (echad) flesh.

    Notice two leave their mother and father, and cleave together like scales on a crocodile, and become a united unit. The door pictograph is used in a variety of ways if we assume we can understand Nomadic thinking all those years ago. One can relate to a "strong one outside the door" of ourselves. And this is our helper. Our partner and spouse.

    Often we do not understand why certain word meanings were composed from their pictographs, so in humility one should say we do not know...rather than as scholars do, and ignore the evidence we do have and invent a different theory for language.

  • Ge 2:20...but for Adam there was not found an help meet (ezer) for him.

    The pictograph meaning for "ezer" is "The eye ploughs for the head". What a strange concept.

    See a small study of interesting verses with "help-mate" in them.

  • Ps 30:10 Hear, O LORD, and have mercy upon me: LORD, be thou my helper.

    Next time you think about GOD as our helper, you are asking GOD's eye to plough your head. This concept of ploughing the mind is a simile of making us humble, removing our sins and helps us to see picture connections in Scripture, rather than meaningless words alone, and really helps to make Scripture excitiing to read ! Shalom

    This excitment increases as you learn many words and how they are related together by their pictures.
