The sign: X, Taw and Tiwas
Posted by Fredsvenn on February 5, 2017
Gud sier han er alfa (a) og omega, som kan sammenlignes med bokstaven tau (t) da omega er den siste bokstaven i det greske alfabetet, mens tau er den siste bokstaven blant de semittiske abjader.
Hengt Tyr, som ga seg selv til kollektivet gjennom å ofre seg selv for å få bukt med Fenrisulven, og den korsfestede Jesus er den samme.
Navnet Tyr, som ga opphav til navnet på dagen tirsdag, stammer fra Hovedguden Dyeus i den protoindoeuropeiske mytologien. Dyeus ga også opphav til det latiske ordet for gud, Deus.
Tyr symboliserer stjernetegnet Vekten, som er forbundet med rettferdighet. Bokstaven omega og symbolet for Vekten er den samme. Det er planeten Venus.
Vekten er høstjevndøgnet, mens vårjevndøgnet er Væren, på latinsk Aries, som symboliseres med Guden Mars. Mars er sammen med gudinnen Venus.
Året startet før vi flyttet datoen til desember tidligere i mars. Tyr blir ansett for å være den germanske ekvivalenten av Mars.
Omega (stor bokstav Ω, og liten bokstav ω) er den 24. og siste bokstaven i det greske alfabetet.
Ordets betydning er den store O, der mega på gresk har betydningen stor. Dette skiller bokstaven fra det greske alfabetets andre o, omikron, den lille O, der mikro har betydningen liten.
Tau (Τ, τ) er den nittende bokstaven i det greske alfabetet, men den toogtyvende og siste bokstav blant de semittiske abjader. Den ble brukt som symbol for korsfestelsen som et symbol for livet og oppstandelsen.
Tyr, the hanged god

The so-called “Chrismon of Saint Ambrose” (Chrismon Sancti Ambrosii), on display on the eastern wall of Milan Cathedral, a Chi-Rho combined with Alpha and Omega in a circle. According to Landulf of Milan (12th century), it was used by Saint Ambrose to introduce the catechumens to the mysteries of the Christian faith (whence it was called “oracle” or chresmos of St. Ambrose, written by Landulf as crismon, whence the later New Latin term for the Chi-Rho symbol).
In Plato’s Timaeus, it is explained that the two bands that form the soul of the world cross each other like the letter Χ. Plato’s analogy, along with several other examples of chi as a symbol occur in Thomas Browne’s discourse The Garden of Cyrus (1658). Chi or X is often used to abbreviate the name Christ, as in the holiday Christmas (Xmas). When fused within a single typespace with the Greek letter Rho, it is called the labarum and used to represent the person of Jesus Christ.
The Chi Rho (also known as chrismon) is one of the earliest forms of christogram, and is used by some Christians. It is formed by superimposing the first two (capital) letters—chi and rho (ΧΡ)—of the Greek word ΧΡΙΣΤΟΣ “Christ” in such a way that the vertical stroke of the rho intersects the center of the chi. The Chi-Rho thus symbolises specifically the status of Jesus as the risen Christ (Messiah).
An early visual representation of the connection between the Crucifixion of Jesus and his triumphal resurrection, seen in the 4th century sarcophagus of Domitilla in Rome, the use of a wreath around the Chi-Rho symbolizes the victory of the Resurrection over death.
The Chi-Rho is also known as the labarum, which is based on the Latin word laureum, “military standard.” The Chi-Rho symbol was used by the Roman emperor Constantine I (r. 306–337) as part of a military standard (vexillum).
According to Lactantius, a Latin historian of North African origins saved from poverty by the Emperor Constantine I, who made him tutor to his son Crispus, Constantine had dreamt of being ordered to put a “heavenly divine symbol” on the shields of his soldiers. The description of the actual symbol chosen by Emperor Constantine the next morning, as reported by Lactantius, is not very clear: it closely resembles a Chi-Rho or a staurogram, a similar Christian symbol. That very day Constantine’s army fought the forces of Maxentius and won the Battle of the Milvian Bridge (312), outside Rome.
Libra – Justice
LIFE / LAW
The Ancient picture is a type of “mark,” probably of two sticks crossed to mark a place, similar to the Egyptian hieroglyph , a picture of two crossed sticks. This letter has the meanings of “mark,” “sign” and “signature.” Taw is believed to be derived from the Egyptian hieroglyph meaning “mark”.
Taw, tav, or taf is the twenty-second and last letter of the Semitic abjads. Its original sound value is /t/. The Phoenician letter gave rise to the Greek tau (Τ), Latin T, and Cyrillic Т. In ancient times, tau was used as a symbol for life or resurrection, whereas the eighth letter of the Greek alphabet, theta, was considered the symbol of death.
God proclaimed Himself as “the Alpha and the Omega” (Revelation1:8,21:6,22:13) which is the first and last letters in the Greek alphabet. Jesus spoke Aramaic. The first and last letters of the Aramaic and Hebrew language. “I am the Alaph and the Taw” (Aramaic) or “I am the Aleph and the Tav” (Hebrew).
The tau was also considered a symbol of salvation due to the identification of the tau with the sign which in Ezekiel 9:4 was marked on the forehead of the saved ones, or due to the tau-shaped outstretched hands of Moses in Exodus 17:11: “And it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed: and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed.”
In Biblical times, the taw was put on men to distinguish those who lamented sin, although newer versions of the Bible have replaced the ancient term taw with mark (Ezekiel 9:4) or signature (Job 31:35).
The symbolism of the cross was connected not only to the letter chi but also to tau, the equivalent of the last letter in the Phoenician and Old Hebrew alphabets, and which was originally cruciform in shape.
The Tau Cross is a form of the Christian cross symbol, named after the Greek letter it resembles. It is also variously St. Anthony’s Cross, Old Testament Cross, Anticipatory Cross, Cross Commissee, Egyptian Cross, Advent Cross, Croce taumata, Saint Francis’s Cross, Crux Commissa. The shape of the letter tau or T was interpreted as representing a crucifix from antiquity.
The ancient pictorial lettering of the Alaph/Aleph is a picture of a head of an ox and symbolizes “God, first, strong, power and leader.” The Taw/Tav is a picture of two crossed sticks and symbolizes “a covenant, monument mark and a sign.” “From aleph to taf” describes something from beginning to end, the Hebrew equivalent of the English “From A to Z.”
The Alaph/Aleph ox head is like the animal sacrificial system under the Old Covenant. The Taw/Tav crossed sticks is like a symbol of the crucifixion under the New Covenant. Put together, it represents God as the First Leader with strong power and the sign of New Covenant of Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross.
According to the Poetic Edda and Prose Edda, at one stage the gods decided to shackle the Fenris wolf (Fenrir), but the beast broke every chain they put upon him. Eventually they had the dwarves make them a magical ribbon called Gleipnir. It appeared to be only a silken ribbon. Fenrir sensed the gods’ deceit and refused to be bound with it unless one of them put his hand in the wolf’s mouth.
Týr, known for his great wisdom and courage, agreed, and the other gods bound the wolf. After Fenrir had been bound by the gods, he struggled to try to break the rope. Fenrir could not break the ribbon and, enraged, bit Týr’s right hand off. When the gods saw that Fenrir was bound they all rejoiced, except Týr.
Fenrir would remain bound until the day of Ragnarök. As a result of this deed, Týr is called the “Leavings of the Wolf”; which is to be understood as a poetic kenning for glory. As a consequence, however, his name is also associated with perjury. According to the Prose version of Ragnarök, Týr is destined to kill and be killed by Garm, the guard dog of Hel. However, in the two poetic versions of Ragnarök, he goes unmentioned; unless one believes that he is the “Mighty One”.
Sigrdrífumál teaches runemagic and advises one to twice name Týr and carve “victory runes” on the sword hilt, presumably referring to the t rune. If a warrior carved the rune Tîwaz on his weapon he would be dedicating it to Týr and strengthen the outcome of a battle to be in his favor. The reconstructed Proto-Germanic name is *Tîwaz or *Teiwaz.
Tiw was equated with Mars in the interpretatio germanica. Tuesday is in fact “Tīw’s Day” (also in Alemannic Zischtig from zîes tag), translating dies Martis. The t-rune ᛏ is named after Týr, and was identified with this god. Týr in origin was a generic noun meaning “god”, e.g. Hangatyr, literally, the “god of the hanged”, as one of Odin’s names, which was probably inherited from Týr in his role as god of justice.
During the battle at Ragnarök, Fenrir swallows Odin whole. In Norse mythology, Víðarr (Old Norse, possibly “wide ruler”) is a god among the Æsir associated with vengeance. Víðarr is described as the son of Odin and the jötunn Gríðr, and is foretold to avenge his father’s death by killing the wolf Fenrir at Ragnarök, a conflict which he is described as surviving.
The mid-11th century Gosforth Cross, located in Cumbria, England, has been described as depicting a combination of scenes from the Christian Judgement Day and the pagan Ragnarök. The cross features various figures depicted in Borre style, including a man with a spear facing a monstrous head, one of whose feet is thrust into the beast’s forked tongue and on its lower jaw, while a hand is placed against its upper jaw, a scene interpreted as Víðarr fighting Fenrir. The depiction has also been theorized as a metaphor for Jesus’s defeat of Satan.
Georges Dumézil theorized that Víðarr represents a cosmic figure from an archetype derived from the Proto-Indo-Europeans. Dumézil stated that he was aligned with both vertical space, due to his placement of his foot on the wolf’s lower jaw and his hand on the wolf’s upper jaw, and horizontal space, due to his wide step and strong shoe, and that, by killing the wolf, Víðarr keeps the wolf from destroying the cosmos, and the cosmos can thereafter be restored after the destruction resulting from Ragnarök.
