The Changing Alphabet

1. All human language and the first writing emerged out of Mesopotamia. The best form of the language, the highest level of beauty and elegance was achieved at Nineveh around 1000 BC. This is the writing that can be studied at the British Museum collection of the Ashurbanipal Library. Here is a picture of the curator of the Museum with one of the cuneiform tablets from the Flood story. My comments will be italicized and in bold. All the other views are underlined; they are not my views. They are issues I'm drawing attention to.

[Flood Tables - Noah]

Irving Finkel, curator in charge of cuneiform clay tablets at the British Museum, poses with the tablet which describes "The Ark Before Noah."

Here's another tablet from the British Museum and the article describing it:

Here's the British Museum website:

The Assyrian King Ashurbanipal (reigned 669-631 BC) collected a library of thousands of cuneiform tablets in his palace at Nineveh. It included letters, legal texts, lists of people, animals and goods, and a wealth of scientific information, as well as myths and legends.

The best known of these was the story of Gilgamesh, a legendary ruler of Uruk, and his search for immortality. The Epic of Gilgamesh is a huge work, the longest piece of literature in Akkadian (the language of Babylonia and Assyria). It was known across the ancient Near East, with versions also found at Hattusas (capital of the Hittites), Emar in Syria and Megiddo in the Levant.

This, the eleventh tablet of the Epic, describes the meeting of Gilgamesh with Utnapishtim. Like Noah in the Hebrew Bible, Utnapishtim had been forewarned of a plan by the gods to send a great flood. He built a boat and loaded it with all his precious possessions, his kith and kin, domesticated and wild animals and skilled craftsmen of every kind.

Utnapishtim survived the flood for six days while mankind was destroyed, before landing on a mountain called Nimush. He released a dove and a swallow but they did not find dry land to rest on, and returned. Finally a raven that he released did not return, showing that the waters must have receded.

This Assyrian version of the Old Testament flood story was identified in 1872 by George Smith, an assistant in The British Museum.

Here's another article on the web that goes into how the story of the Flood is taken from more ancient sources.

NB! In my view all these articles are attempts to weaken the authority of the Scriptures; Marya Allaha gave humanity this knowledge over thousands of years. It was lost to humanity for certain periods, but many prophets came along and continued the tradition of describing how the Creator of the Universe created everything. All history and science is to the glory of Maryah Allaha and is ultimately to serve the purpose of Maran Eashoa Msheekha.

2. According to contemporary scholars, the original Hebrew script developed alongside others in the region during the course of the late second and first millennia BCE; it is closely related to the Phoenician script, which itself probably gave rise to the use of alphabetic writing in Greece (Greek). It is sometimes claimed that around the 10th century BCE [verification needed] a distinct Hebrew variant, the original "Hebrew script", emerged, which was widely used in the ancient kingdoms of Israel and Judah until they fell in the 8th and 6th centuries BCE, respectively. It is not straightforward, however, to distinguish Israelite/Judahite scripts from others which were in use in the immediate area, most notably by the Moabites and Ammonites.

Following the Babylonian exile, Jews gradually stopped using the Hebrew script, and instead adopted the "square" Aramaic script (another offshoot of the same family of scripts). This script, used for writing Hebrew, later evolved into the Jewish, or "square" script, that is still used today. Closely related scripts were in use all over the Middle East for several hundred years, but following the rise of Christianity (and later, the rise of Islam), they gave way to the Latin and Arabic scripts, respectively.

The Hebrew alphabet was later adapted in order to write down the languages of the Jewish diaspora (Karaim, JudŠo-Arabic, Ladino, Yiddish, etc.), and was retained all the while in relatively unadapted form throughout the diaspora for Hebrew, which remained the language of Jewish law, scriptures and scholarship. The Hebrew alphabet was also retained as the alphabet used for writing down the Hebrew language during its rebirth as an everyday modern language starting in the 18th to 19th century.

According to one Jewish tradition, however, the block script seen today in Hebrew Torah Scrolls, known as Kthav Ashurith, was the original Hebrew script carved into the Ten Commandments. According to this opinion, the Ktav Ashurith was lost over time, as the masses used Paleo-Hebrew and its cousins, known as Kthav Ivri, for day to day writing, just as Jews today use a non block script for everyday writing.

NB! The Ktav Ashurit is the genuine Ancient Aramaic alphabet of the Scriptures. It should be placed first at the top. All the other scripts evolved out of the source of the original Ktav Ashurit, which is the language of Nineveh. Later it became the Galilean dialect of Eashoa Msheekha when King Ashurnasirpal III moved the Ninevite tribes that had followed Jonah to Galilee, ca 1000 BC. Today's Galilean language is Arabic. The Galilean Arabic is a late comer to the area -- after the Islamic Era in the 7th Century AD. The Aramaic displayed on the web as the language of Galilee is not the true language. The Aramaic of the Essenes and the Dead Sea Scrolls is not the Ancient Aramaic of the Scriptures. The Essene Aramaic is a primitive form of Aramaic. This is not the language Eashoa read from in the synagogues of Judea. Eashoa read from the Ashurit Ancient Aramaic. How do I know? Because this is the manuscript I'm translating from and this is the Scripture that is true to the teachings of Eashoa Msheekha. This is the truth that cannot be refuted by those people who possess the Faith in Eashoa Msheekha.

NB! In order to understand the evolution of the Alphabet, it is necessary to examine the various scripts that emerged over the centuries with respect to the language of the Scriptures. In the chart below you will not find the true alphabet of the Ancient Church of the East. You will find it in the chart below this one. It's in the 4th place. The alphabet you find in the chart immediately below this comment shows the evolution of the animal shaped alphabet of all the languages. And you can also discern the deliberately manipulated order of the Arabic, Latin, Cyrillic (in other words the Western alphabets, which don't follow the Hebrew or the Aramaic order. Arabic and the Western alphabets do not follow in the order of the Hebrew-Aramaic 22 letter alphabet.)

NB! Note that the order of the various alphabets are not correct. The Arabic alphabet to the right of all is made to conform to the Hebrew and Aramaic. The Arabic alphabet is "Aleph, beth, thaw..." Tau is the last letter of the Aramaic and Hebrew alphabets; it is not the third letter.

The order of the alphabet are changed because the Alap is the first letter of the Alphabet and signifies the Creator of the Universe's name. It is the symbolic representation of His Name. He is the Alap (the Beginning) and the Tau (the End.) In other words, He is the Beginning and the End -- or Eternal.

Notice how the other alphabets derive from the pictures of animals (including the Hebrew alphabet), but the Ashurit Aramaic does not (you see this in the chart below). This is not easy to discern by people who do not know all these languages. Even the people who have supposedly studied these languages do not know the significance of how the changes have distorted the meaning of Scriptures, and how it is only through the Ancient Aramaic that the Trinity is preserved in the language of the Scriptures.

3. The early Arabic alphabet according to wikipedia:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_the_Arabic_alphabet

The Arabic alphabet evolved either from the Nabataean, or (less widely believed) from the Syriac. This table shows changes undergone by the shapes of the letters from the Aramaic original to the Nabataean and Syriac forms. Arabic is placed in the middle for clarity and not to mark a time order of evolution. It should be noted that the Arabic script represented in the table below is that of post-Classical and Modern Arabic, not 6th century Arabic script which is of a notably different form.

NB! Notice the English transcription 5 is not in the order of the English alphabet. That's why English can never be considered a sacred scribal language. Neither does any other language. It's only the Ancient Aramaic that is the sacred, scribal language of Scriptures. Here it's in the 4th place in the chart. This alphabetic script is not the only one; it's one of them. There are a few scripts that follow the Ancient Aramaic form; all of them came down from the Ancient Church of the East, which does not exist anymore, except for its remnants, such as the Church of the East of the Atourai and a few other ones that followed the Ashurai tradition of Christianity, the tradition of the Men of Nineveh referred to by Eashoa Msheekha in Matthew 12:39-41. This is also the Ashurit that the Jewish scholars refer to today.

NB! This table above shows four of the scripts that evolved from the Ancient Aramaic, the language of Mesopotamia. This is not what the article says, nor is the chart above representative of the correct order and the origin of the alphabet.

I presented this chart here so you can understand how the falsification of the alphabet's origin is carried out, and its ultimate purpose -- which is to deny the authenticity of the Ancient Aramaic Scriptures and the concept of the Trinity of the Faith in Eashoa Msheekha.

Note that the Syriac, placed in the 4th position, is the script of the Ancient Church of the East. This is the legitimate script of the sacred, scribal language.

When you study the origin of the alphabet further, you will notice that the letters presented at the top of the chart are called "Aramaic" and they are representation of the images of animals. The Ancient Aramaic script of the Scriptures did not evolve from the animal shapes of the "Aramaic" script presented at the top of the chart as #1.


NB! I'll be adding more information to this article. There are thousands of facts that have never been revealed to the people who are interested in the origin of the alphabet and the authority of the Ancient Aramaic Scriptures. It will take someone two lifetimes to present all these facts -- not that it will do much good, because the Western Churches will continue to say the New Testament was written in Greek and the Old Testament was written in Hebrew, even though it's here on this page how the Hebrew scholars who wrote these articles I've quoted here say that the Hebrew language is relatively new compared to the original language (which they correctly identify as Ashurith! Slightly misspelled, as it is not Ashurith but Ashurit. Ashurith is the Arabic form of the word; the language Eashoa spoke is the Leeshana Ateeqah and the word is pronounce Ashurit. This is the language of Nineveh, the Land of Ashur.

The important thing to note is that all the languages that emerged out of animal shapes are not the origin of the Sacred Scribal Language, the Ancient Aramaic (Leeshana Ateeqah). This is why I've put this page together, so that some people might follow up these articles with the outside links and study this subject for themselves. Personally, I know that Maryah Allaha spoke the Ancient Aramaic, because only in His language are the names of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit preserved.
