Video on the Essenes and Dead Sea Scrolls
The Dead Sea Scrolls are the oldest copy of biblical texts, containing biblical texts as well as ones missing from the modern book. They date from the
second century B.C.E. They were found in the 1950s but the content was kept very secret until the 1990s. Even now, only small parts are available or
made public at all. They were written by the community of monks called the Essenes, or the Great White Lodge, who lived virtuosly and rightously, and
even had connections to the east. Yod He Vau He is foundational and key to the DSS, regardless of anything. Truth is truth however far back in
antiquity it might go. Anyways, they were VERY literate in many languages, both languages known to us and secret languages unknown to us now
The discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls was hailed as an important discovery
Although many of the scrolls are written in Aramaic script, other languages were also used, such as Greek. Some fragments were written in old
Hebrew called Paleo-Hebrew and a few were written in a secret script for initiates. An interesting and important scroll called the Habakkuk Commentary
[Figure 3], is an illustration of square Hebrew script or Aramaic used in the 1st and 2nd centuries B.C. Note, however, the use of an ancient Hebrew
script employed on line 10 to write the divine name of the Lord. The slant on the four letter word which represents the name of God as YHWH also has a
different lettering style.
The Tetragrammation and the DSS
Interesting quotes about the tetragramation
Tetragrammaton - a name of God that can be thought, read, gestured, and written, but not spoken aloud.
Originally, YHVH is a vibration or like a mantra, like OM
and a portrait of how a physical representation would be in 22 parts
But what is not always known and needs to be considered, is that very far back in time some people had no writing system. In fact, what might not be
so commonly known is that Egypt, the 22 part Tarot, travelling Egyptians, and those of a few other lands too probably, were the start of various
civilizations written language and spiritual teachings which eventually became religous concepts. And in fact, greed and gambling could insure that at
least some of the shell remains if not the inner meaning
Modern Tarot version
Who mapped the contellations?
