1250 Abba

1250 Abba

The Aramaic word “Abba” is thought to be a very intimate term for “Father” suggesting that those who use it to refer to God enjoy a close relationship with him. Jesus Christ uses the term as a consequence of his natural sonship of God; believers may use it as a consequence of their adopted sonship of God through faith.

“Abba” used in addressing God

By Jesus Christ Mk 14:36

By believers Ro 8:15; Gal 4:6
