The Ancient Hebrews had a relationship with their God unique to all others in that the “God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob” desired to have personal fellowship with His creation. That could only be accomplished if the natural principles of straightness were transferred to the spiritual understandings of man. The pictographs of Asar give a beautiful natural picture of that spiritual process.
