Inheritance and Posterity
God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto
the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son,
whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;
Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person,
and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself
purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;
Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance
obtained a more excellent name than they.
Hebrews 1:1ff (Spoke 14, Cycle 3)
Inheritence and Posterity
The name of the Fourteenth Letter
denotes a fish. This gave rise to a variety of related meanings such
as to continue, increase, propagate, and sprout.
The word Nun is the
root of נין (neen, son) which occurs
thrice in Scripture, always in conjunction with another Nun KeyWord
נכד (neked, posterity).
This pair appears three times translated twice as as "son" (Neen) and "nephew" (Neked) and
onece as "son" (neen) and "son's son" (neked).
Integration with the Inner Wheel of Isaiah
Neen is profoundly
integrated with the chapter sequence of Isaiah, where it appears only in
Isaiah 14, translated as son.
Nun KeyWord Nachal (Heritage)
The symbolic meaning of Nun as Son, Progeny, Perpetuity, and Posterity
manifests in the Nun KeyWord (Nachal, Inheritance)
which the Lord placed in
the seventh Nun-verse of the great alphabetic Psalm 119 (vs. 111):
Thy testimonies have I taken as an heritage for ever: for they are the rejoicing
of my heart.
Heir of All Things
This meaning of Nun
also manifests with perfect clarity in the Book of Hebrews which opens with the
proclamation that the Son is the "heir of all things." This is the meaning of
נין (neen, son) as used in
Isaiah 14. It both differs from
and integrates with the fundamental Beyt KeyWord בן (ben, son) which
reveals the nature of God the Son, the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity.
Neen differs from Ben in two ways: 1) it is a very rare word, 2) it emphasises the aspect
of inheritence, as opposed to Ben which emphasises the the Son as the Builder of the House. But it is
integrated in the analysis of the fundamental word Ben:
בן (Ben, Son)
= ב (Bet, House)
& נ (Nun, Posterity/Inheritance)
This is discussed in relation to
Psalm 2 - the Psalm of the Son.
The word Nun appears in the proper name of Joshua - the great Type of Jesus (indeed, Jesus is the
Greek version of the name Joshua) - who led the children of Israel into the
Promised land. His name Ben Nun means "son of perpetuity" and it is an acronym of the word
Ben itself. All this add deapth to Joshua Ben Nun as an image of the Eternal Son, the Lord
