Deuteronomy 3124 And it came to pass, when Moses
had made an end of writing the words of this law

this book of the law, and put it in the side of
the ark of the covenant of the LORD your God,

Just before the death of Paul, he said
2 Timothy 49 Do thy diligence to come shortly
unto me The cloak that I left at Troas with
Carpus, when thou comest, bring with thee, and
the books, but especially the parchments.

(hand) is used while reading the scroll.

THERE HAD TO BE A KEY, A CONTROL, TO MAKE SURE
THERE WERE NO MISTAKES. When Jesus said one Jot
or one tittle would not pass from the Law (Torah)
he was making reference to the YOD (JOT) the
most common letter used 31,530 times in the
Torah And the TET (TITTLE) the least common
letter used 1,820 times in the Torah PERHAPS
THIS WAS THE KEY
