Metaphysical meaning of Eber (mbd)
Meta. Shem was a son of Noah; he typifies the spiritual in man. Eber, a great-grandson of Shem's, reveals the germination (a shoot) in man's consciousness of this spiritual phase of his being. Beyond signifies that the individual, at the period of his unfoldment that is suggested by Eber, has not yet come to full growth spiritually; the time when he can bring forth the perfect fruit of the Spirit to eternal life and wholeness is still in the future. However, he has passed over, come over, on the other side, his old conception of mortality, and has entered into a new perception of Truth, of the possibility of limitless attainment.
