How does the Language of the Garden of Eden Compare to other ancient languages?
Take a look at the ancient languages of the pagan nations of Sumeria, Phoenicia, Egypt, and China. They are full of iconic symbols that became objects of worship. The Sun, the Moon, the Stars are pictured in these pictographic languages as sacred entities.
Man’s technology is lifted up in these pagan pictographic languages that were birthed in the chaos and confusion that followed Babel.
Look at the Egyptian, Sumerian and Chinese pictograms and what do you notice? Notice the boats and carts pulled by oxen, mules, and horses. Notice the spears and the bows, the sword and the whips. Notice the adornment and sensualization of women, notice the jewelry and other bodily adornments including make-up. Notice the division of classes of men from the lowliest to the most elevated.
Compare all this to the simple pictures that undergird the Hebrew language, the language of the Garden of Eden. Notice all the Pictograms that are present in the earliest Pictographic languages of the Egyptians, Chinese, and the Sumerians.
Now notice what you don’t see.
The Language of the Garden has NO…
- Metal Works
- Beasts of Burden
- Ox Carts
- Sun to worship
- Moon to worship
- Stars to worship
- Graven Idols
- Pagan art
- Musical Instrument
In other words, the Language of the Garden has NONE of the works of Man pictured.
If you're familiar with the Hebrew pictures that undergird each Hebrew letter you might be tempted to correct me on a couple small points. You could point to the Hebrew letter Zayin and say that it is a picture of an axe, which could be used as a weapon. Remember that the Language that came out of the Garden of Eden was the same language that was used in a fallen world full of murder, treachery and all manner of sin. If you were the caretaker of a garden you would need some tools. Tools for pruning and harvesting. Zayin is simply pictured originally as a harvesting tool for pruning fruit trees that could be and would be corrupted into a weapon. The fact hat Zayin is now pictured as axe with a steel blade only proves that the language of the Garden of Eden was designed to survive the fall of mankind into sin and rebellion. When we look at the original pictogram of Zayin it reveals something else altogether. It is the picture of what you might consider a harvesting tool, an ax for pruning and tending an orchard.
You might also wonder why a tent is the picture for the Letter Beyt. Did Adam live in a tent made of animal skins or woven from wool or fiber in the Garden of Eden?
Adam lived under the firmament.
Did Adam understand that he was living under a dome or firmament?
Of course he did.
God himself pictures the world, including the firmament into which God placed the sun, moon and all the stars along with Adam and Eve who dwelt safely on the dry ground that God had so lushly graced with both flora and fauna, as a tent.
The simple truth is that there is not one single picture in the palette of 22 pictures that are not consistent with life in the Garden of Eden before the fall.
Here is where we come face to face with the miracle of God’s Pure Language.
By the Creator's design from the beginning the language of the Garden perfectly accomplished its purpose before and after the fall of Adam. It was a language perfectly suited for the Garden or Eden and divinely designed to accomplish its redemptive purpose after the expulsion from the Garden. It was a language that anticipated the fall of man without having to change a single letter, picture or number.
I know what your thinking.
Obviously, words that were unfamiliar to Adam in the Garden of Eden would be constructed from the letters in the Hebrew alphabet in order that men might communicate in this newly fallen and changing a sinful world. The miracle is that the language of the Garden made that seemingly impossible transition and accommodation without loosing its original purpose.
And what was that purpose?
The answer can be found in one word. The word is Messiah. The Hebrew language is designed at its very root to communicate the message of Messianic atonement and redemption.
