Just some diagrams on my own preferred "config" for the double letters. I like having the Bet "top centre" because it makes the "mechanics" of getting it into the top right position when the Tree is divided into male and female halves (as per Abraham;s Genesis 15 split), quite simple.
And with the Bet above the Reish and the Tau, the central column has the template or skeleton for the word covenant - Bet-Reish-Yod_Tau (Brith).
Brith – Covenant
I will also paste in some more diagrams highlighting the "pluses" for shifting Tiphereth down so that it sits in the centre of the Tree -- the "benefits" include:
- The configuration of the links into the "nodes" (ie the sephiroth) relates to the structure of the Torah
- The Tipereth (beauty) visually sits at the centre of the Tree - fitting for something associated with beauty, the Tree (cf the Golden Ratio links), and with the 8 Connecting links, and with Jesuss
- It highlights the very special link between Joseph and our world (ie Malcuth), and between the two messiahs
Have edited the post to put the diagrams of the allocation of letters to vertical lines into into a separate pdf. An important part of the allocation, is that teh central line in the Tree spells out the skeleton of teh word for covenant. So, the centre of the Tree, will have the three letters, ברת, which are the skeleton or backbone of the word for covenant.
This is important because the Tree is a model of Jesu's heart – and when the Roman soldier cut Jesus' heart with the spear, he was cutting the covenant that ensured humanity's future. More on this in future posts.
The pdf of the sample allocation of the Double letters to the vertical lines in the Tree is here.
Tthe diagrams in the pdf are the ones that were previously in this post. he allocation of 3 and 4 (Gimel and Daleth) to the right side of the Tree is done to match the two halves of the first verse of theh Bible - 3 words (Gimel = 3) in one half, and four words (Daleth = 4) in the second half. Several other possible allocations are possible, and are in more common use than those shown in the pdf.
