Deconstructing the Pentateuch, Rabbi Ba’al Shiva


The first five books of the bible hold special significance to the Hebrew community.  There is a warning that comes with it, do not change a single letter.  It was thought that there was some hidden code and people have meditated on the mystery and tried to uncover why these first 5 books are so important.  I am not here to say yay or nay on whether the bible code is real, but it is interesting, what I am here to do is to explain why these books are special and what they mean.


The Pentateuch is considered the extended name of god theoretically if you could pronounce it correctly powerful world changing forces are unleashed.  It is devowelated which means the vowels have been removed, now this also allows for interpretations and renditions of the meaning of the scriptures, a forced equality of perspective since you can’t prove your perspective as the single correct perspective and you can’t change the scripture to prove yourself correct.  This is why there are so many commentaries and interpretations from so many perspectives, because you can’t slam the door on anybody else’s perspective.  In a way it kind of has the same effect as the Sanatana dharma in Hinduism.

Now since we know that god’s name is the ineffable name, and if you are familiar with my explanation of the ineffable name, you know that you can’t pronounce god’s name in the physical sense because it has to be pronounced through right action, right thought, right emotion, and also right speech, as is consistent with Jewish Praxis a term more common in Kabbalah than in Judaism.  Extrapolating from this premise the same would hold true for the extended version of god’s name.

Now, in my humble opinion, the characters in the Pentateuch represent the world or more specifically the people in the world.  The vowels would represent the relationship between the phenomena which could also include animals to a certain extent.  Which means that the way that you would pronounce god’s name on a grander scale, in the world, would be through the proper relationship between all of the people in the world.  Which to my way of thinking would be what i refer to as equality under the authority of reason, or the Law.  “Aequalitatus sub ratio”.
