faythwalker said:In its most literal translation Abba means “daddy” more than Father. It would be an expression a 6 year old might say when running to see their father coming in from the fields after a day’s work. God’s majesty is shown in many of His names, but his proximity to us in love…

living-loved said:That’s why many of the people were surprised when Jesus used “abba” because it wasn’t like Father or “Heavenly Father,” instead it was like saying “daddy” or even “dada.” I think it just shows how personal we can be with God honestly.
joyseph said:I’ve never heard anyone call Him ‘daddy.’ That just sounds so creepy, never mind arguments about being respectful or not! Haha it’s just weird!!
