Ephpheta is an Anglicised form of an Aramaic word meaning “be opened”. As Jesus healed a deaf man (Mark 9:34), he says “be opened”, and so the deaf man begins to hear and speak. The sign above is the same as the letter “e” in the Irish sign alphabet.

Faith is the attitude that a Christian believer has towards Jesus and his teachings. Christian faith is primarily about a person. A Christian believes firstly in the person of Jesus, and next in his teachings.
