Messianic Insights - Beth Part 3 (Discovering Messiah Through Hebrew Alphabet) 

– ‘בן’ – the ‘SON’ – ‘בר’

Psalm 119 v 9/16 is the ‘Beth’ section and deals with what is inside the ‘Beth’ (house) – the person or the family is what matters. To ‘live’ these verses we must seek God with our whole heart – see verse 11 “Thy words I have treasured in my heart, that I may not sin against Thee.” KJV version reads “Thy words have I hid in my heart, that I might not sin against Thee.”

The lessons from the Hebrew alphabet teach us some of the secret things of God and His plan for His people Israel - Hidden from the view of generations, they are now being revealed in these ‘last days’. As God told Daniel through the archangel Michael, these truths were sealed up “even to the time of the END; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge [including knowledge of God] shall be INCREASED" (Daniel 12 v 4).


In this light, it is interesting to note that Deuteronomy 32 v 6, uses the enlarged ‘Hey’ to illustrate the END of His (God’s) ‘works, time-table, plan, and time of judgment’ -ה ליהוה תגמלי-ואת עם נבל ולא הכם הלוא-הוא אביך קגך הוא עשך ויכננך (Deuteronomy 32 v 6) – “Do you thus repay the LORD, O foolish and unwise people? Is not He your Father who has bought you?  He has made you and established you.”


Even as the diminutive ‘Hey’ in Genesis 2 v 4 points to the beginning of Creation, which began on the first day of the Creation week, so the final large ‘Hey’ in Deuteronomy 32 v 6 points to the Preparation Day, sundown, the end of the Sixth Day, when the first Creation of man is finished, and the beginning of the Seventh-Day Sabbath Rest.

 “אלה תולדות השמים והארץ בהבראם ביום עשות יהוה אלהים ארץ ושמים” (Genesis 2 v 4) – “This is the account of the heaven and the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made earth and heaven.”

Deuteronomy 32 v 7 points directly to creation and is a prophecy of the 6,000 year plan of God. We read: “Remember the days of old, consider the years of many generations.”


There are many revelations found just by looking at the very first Hebrew word in the Torah – Bereshit! - בראשית

Yeshua’s ‘body’ was the ‘beth’ the ‘house’ in which God dwelt when He was on earth “And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.” (John 1 v 14).

The only ‘oversized’ letter ‘Beth’ in the whole of the Torah is seen at the beginning of the Hebrew word –בראשית- ‘Bereshith’ – this is revealing to us how God is going to speak to us – He speaks to us through His ‘Son’ – the Hebrew word for son is בן - ‘ben’ (Strong’s H1121) and it is the ‘beth’ the first of the two letters spelling son (בר) that starts the Torah – the value of ‘son’ – ‘ben’ in Hebrew Gematria is Beth = 2, Nun soffit = 50 – total = 52.

interestingly ‘and He divided’ - (Strong’s H914 ‘badal’) in Genesis 1 v 4 has the same Gematria of 52 ‘ויבדל’.

Genesis 22 v 2 ‘יחידך’ – “thine only” – “And He said, “Take now your son, your only son, whom you love, Isaac, and go to the land of Moriah; and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I will tell you.”- the Gematria here is also 52!

So now the son is identified with the ‘only son’ that the Father took to the mountain of Moriah to sacrifice Him on the altar!


The following is quoted from ‘Number in Scripture’ by Ethelbert W Bullinger -

“We have now come to the spiritual significance of the number TWO.  We have seen that ONE excludes all difference and denotes that which is sovereign.  But TWO affirms that there is a difference – there is another; while ONE affirms that there is not another!

The difference may be for good or for evil.  A thing may differ from evil and be good; or it may differ from good, and be evil,  Hence, the number TWO takes a TWO-FOLD colouring, according to the context.

It is the first number by which we divide another, and therefore in all its uses we may trace this fundamental idea of division and difference.

The TWO may be, though different in character, yet one as to testimony and friendship.  The Second that comes in may be fore help and deliverance.  But, alas! Where man is concerned, this number testifies of his fall, for it more often denotes that difference which implies opposition, enmity and oppression.

When the earth lay in the chaos which had overwhelmed it (Genesis 1 v 2), its condition was universal ruin and darkness.  The second thing recorded in connection with the Creation was the introduction of the second thing – Light; and immediately there was a difference and division, for God DIVIDED the light from the darkness.”

Our Father begins Torah with this Second letter of the Hebrew alphabet to point to His ‘Son’ His ‘Another’ – His ‘Seconder’!

“For if either of them falls, the one will lift up his companion.  But woe to the one who falls when there is not another (margin = ‘a second’) to lift him up.” (Ecclesiastes 4 v 10).

בראשית– bereshith

ב - beth

בר - bar

ברא - bera

ברא - bara

בראש -berosh

ראש - rosh

ראשי– roshy

שי– shay

שית – shayith

Beth = ‘in, inside’

Berehsith = “In the beginning”

Bar = ‘son’ – Daniel 3 v 25 (Strong’s H1247/1148) – ‘Son in the fire’ seen here as the ‘fourth’ – 3 + 1 = 4.  Also the word for ‘grain’ – Genesis 41 v 49 (Strong’s H1250) see also John 12 v 24/26).

Bera/bara ‘to create’ - (Strong’s H1254) a verb ‘to create, only God is the subject of this verb – the first and second Hebrew words in Genesis 1 v 1 have the same letters.

B(e)rosh – ‘tree’ - (Strong’s H7898)  ‘cypress or fir tree’ (2 Kings 19 v 23).

Rosh – ‘head’ (Strong’s H7218) – (Genesis 49 v 26, Ephesians 1 v 22).

Roshy – ‘my head’

Shay – ‘gift’ – (Strong’s H7862) – (Psalm 68 v 29)

Shayith – ‘scrub, trash, thorns’ (Strong’s H7898) – (Isaiah 10 v 17).

Beth – Genesis 6 v 14, 7 v 1, Leviticus 14 v 41 – we are told to “kiss the son (בר – bar– Strong’s H1248/1247) lest he be angry with you.” (Psalm 2 v 12).

The Paleo Hebrew Word Picture of the Hebrew word בר– Beth = ‘house, tent’ – Resh = ‘head’ – or ‘the man within the house’ – Proverbs 31 v 2 (בר – bar).

בקר – ‘boker’ – Hebrew word for ‘morning’ – ‘Boker Tov’ (Good morning) is seen clearly in the Hebrew Word Pictures -

Beth = ‘house/tent’

Resh = ‘a head’

Qof = ‘back of the head, what has behind the person’

Morning is when the house (beth) is behind the person (Qof) when they (resh) leave for work!

Psalm 30 v 5 “But His anger is for a moment, His favour is for a lifetime; weeping may last for a night (Strong’s H6153 – ‘erev’) but a shout of joy comes in the morning (Strong’s H1242 – ‘boker’). 

The Hebrew word for ‘grave’ is ‘קבר = ‘kever’ – if we rearrange the same three ‘root’ letter  בקר- ‘boker’ – ‘morning’ – what appears ‘night’ is but the ‘morning’ of a higher existence!

If we look at the Paleo Hebrew Word Picture for ‘קבר Quof – ‘back of the head’ or ‘what is behind’

Beth – ‘house/tent’

Resh – ‘head’ – could it be ‘finally leaving behind the offer of an entrance into the house of the ‘Head’ of all things – our Beloved Saviour Yeshua?!
