Where did the Star of David (✡) Come
Essentially, King David started it. His name is spelled
"דוד" in Hebrew, or
"ΔYΔ" in ancient Paleo Hebrew.
The VAV (ו or Y) is
understood in Hebrew to mean "join these two together". So David created a
symbol for his name by creating a symbol that was a DALET (Δ) joined with another DALET
(Δ), or a "✡". Of course, since you can't see them both
if they were right side up, one of the DALETs (Δ) was turned upside down, thus
forming a rightside DALET (Δ) with an upside down DALET (Δ) on top of it, or a "✡". Note also that the Paleo VAV (Y)
suggests an upside DALET, and this may have also contributed to the idea of
turning one DALET (Δ) upside down. King David sent his men out to battle with
this symbol on their shield as a way of telling the good guys from the bad guys
- part of their "uniform" so to speak.
It has remained a symbol of Israel ever
since. Archeological finds have discovered it from prior to Yeshua's time,
and the "Messianic Seal", which includes a Menorah, start of David, and fish,
has been observed from the 1st century AD time period on artifacts from just
after Yeshua's time.
Some people have tried to rewrite history
and allege that the Star of David is a pagan symbol carried into Judaism, but
there really is no evidence linking any ancient pagan practices to the Star of
David. Furthermore, the ambundance of ancient pagan practices that include
Baptism/ritual Immersion among Mithraics, Jewish style feasts among the
Shinto-ites, and the fact that Satan worshipper's use Hebrew as their favorite
language for rituals, tell us that many false religions have tried to imitate
what our Creator gave to His own people, and that every parallel observed should
not be attributed as having originated with paganism.
The Star of David is composed of 2 DALET
(Δ) , each of which have a
numerical value of 4 in Hebrew since the letter DALET (Δ) is used to represent the
number 4 for mathematical purposes. The Star of David would
therefore have a numerical value of 2x4=8. The design of the Star of David
has 8 triangles or "Dalets". There are two large triangles / Dalets, and
then 6 smaller ones created by the intersection of the two Dalets, as numbered
So the design of the Star of David can be
considered to geometrically represent how 2x4=8 in Hebrew thought, since each
triangle or DALET (Δ) is a
symbol of hte number 4.
