About Vav Part One
Man was created on the Sixth Day.
In Genesis 1:26-31 it states:
26 Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”
27 So God created mankind in his own image,
in the image of God he created them;
male and female he created them.
28 God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”
29 Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. 30 And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the ground—everything that has the breath of life in it—I give every green plant for food.” And it was so.
31 God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning—the sixth day.
The Vav is commonly said to be the connecting piece between “heaven and earth.”
In the first sentence of Genesis “Vav” literally begins the word we translate as “and” between “heaven and earth.” Not only this, but it is the beginning of the sixth (6) word in Genesis.
The letter Vav is the sixth letter of the Hebrew alphabet and it looks like this: ו
The Vav (ו) joins the heavens and the earth together, suggesting the connection between the spiritual and earthly matters.
Further, the letter Vav (ו) represents a tent peg, hook, spear or nail.
The Vav (ו) is used to depict the hooks that held the curtains of the Tabernacle together. The Tabernacle was the habitation of God in the wilderness and the Torah is the habitation of His Word.
So a Torah scroll is patterned after the Tabernacle.
The Vav (ו) starts each column of the text in a Torah scroll, thereby hooking the text to the parchment or scroll.
ALL glory goes to God alone.
This film is dedicated to all the men and women who spent countless years and persecutions or worse to collect the data and research in films like the one above. There has been a real fight against the authenticity of the ancient pages of the Torah and the Christian Bible. For many, such a fight has even cost their lives.
God bless each and every one of you on the other side of the screen.
