This ability of a word picture used in context to express the function of a word makes Paleo Hebrew the perfect language system to express the heart of God in His communication to man. Equally valuable is the ability of man to teach and pass on the precepts of God to others through the use of Paleo Hebrew word pictures. In its most basic form the Hebrew word “father” demonstrates this principle. The Hebrew word is Av. It is spelled אב in modern form (reading right to left). Upon learning the modern language rules of Hebrew any reader can read the word phonetically, just as with any other word in Hebrew, and apply it to a memorized association. In this case the elder male member of the household.
However, in Paleo Hebrew the spelling is comprised of two pictographs, BA. The A is the depiction of an ox head speaking in ancient cultural context of strength or leader. The B is the depiction of the floorplan of a tent speaking in ancient cultural context of a tent or house. Therefore BA is not just the elder male but the “strength or leader of the tent or house”.
One can quickly see how this understanding applied to Biblical words can immensely expand the functional understanding of those words when applied in the cultural context in which they were written.
