This page is a short introduction into the Standalone Aleph Tav. There are approximately 611 verses that have one of these special type of Alev Tav's in them. One of the features of My Hebrew Bible is that they have been highligted in red את.
In the Hebrew language it is called a direct object, but I believe it points to the Messiah.
Here is the first occurrence. It is in the first verse of the bible
בְּרֵאשִׁית בָּרָא אֱלֹהִים אֵת הַשָּׁמַיִם וְאֵת הָאָרֶץGen 1:1 WLC
Here is the first verse of the book of John which I believe is alluding to Gen 1:1
1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. Joh 1:1 KJV
1:7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen. 8 I am
Alpha and OmegaAleph and Tav, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty. Rev 1:7-8 KJV
12:10 I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me (תא) whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn. Zec 12:10
52:10 YHVH hath made bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth (תא) shall see the salvation of our God.
חָשַׂף יְהוָה אֶת־זְרֹועַ קָדְשֹׁו לְעֵינֵי כָּל־הַגֹּויִם וְרָאוּ כָּל־אַפְסֵי־אָרֶץ 10 אֵת 11 יְשׁוּעַת 12 אֱלֹהֵינוּ 13

53:5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. 6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and יהוה hath laid on him (תא) the iniquity of us all. Isa 53:5-6
10:4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ. 1Co 10:4

The quotes above are from the King James bible with some changes as an attempt to point out the meaning of the Aleph and Tav.
The changes include of course the addition of the Hebrew letters Aleph Tav which are colored in red.
Rev 1:8"" In Rev 1:8 the Greek transliterated word Alpha and Omega is marked up with a strikethrough and
the Hebrew equivalent transliteration of Aleph and Tav was appended next to it.
Both of these sets of letters Alpha and Omega for the Greek and Aleph and Tav for the Hebrew are the first and last letters for their respective languages (in English it would be like A and Z).
The change in the text was to emphasize the Hebrew roots of Y'shua (Jesus) and his disciple John the Revelator.
The presumption made is that a Hebrew messiah speaking to a Hebrew prophet did so in the Hebrew language.
About the picture: The picture of the rock which is found in Kadesh (Num 20) or Meribah-Kadesh (Deu 32:51).
If you look closely, the letters Aleph and Tav have been embossed and are not found in the original picture.
Artistic license was employed to express that the rock (Tsur) mentioned in Deu 32 and 1Cor 10:4 had followed them in the desert.
And it was from this rock that the miracle of the spiritual / living water sprang forth.
The rock (Tsur) is also one of the names for God (Elohim i.e. "…the Rock (Tsur) of his salvation (yeshuato)" (Deu 32:15).
• The word for the LORD in Isaiah 53:6 is substituted with the Hebrew word which is spelled Yood Hey Vav Hey.
• In Rev 1:8, the red letters are found in some version of the King James bible, so those colors therefore were not added.
