The pictograph portrays getting our attention, ‘Behold’, the root of Em (mother or giver of life) who seeks to establish continual life or activity in us. Faith then is the actions of our life that reveal our relationship with the life giver. Our faith brings a life that has purpose.

A

The ‘Aleph’ is the picture of an ox head and illustrates the strength of an animal. It can mean strong, power, or leader.

M

The ‘Mem’ illustrates water or waves. As a nomadic people, the Hebrews feared the waves or waters of the ocean. So the letter came to mean chaos, mighty, or blood.

v

The ‘Vav’ pictures a tent peg or nail. It means to secure, connect, or establish.

n

The ‘Nun’ represents a seed or sprout and gives us the meaning of continuing to a new generation. It can have the meaning of continuing, perpetuating, sustaining, offspring, or heir.

h

The ‘Hey’ pictograph represents a man with his hands in the air trying to get someone’s attention. It suggests look, reveal, behold.

  1. I truly love this!!! Do you offer more teaching? I’ve been reading Hebrews about faith and knew it meant more than the anemic definition usually given. Thank you so much!!!

  2. I’m so so happy to understand some basic words in the Hebrew language.
    Especially the pictogram aspect of the language.
