The First Person of the Blessed Trinity. He is truly Father as He begets a co-eternal and co-equal Son, to whom He imparts the plenitude of His Nature and in Whom He contemplates His own perfect image. By nature God is Our Creator and Lord, and we are His creatures and subjects. By sin we are His enemies and deserve His chastisements. By grace, however, He lovingly pardons us, adopts us as sons, and destines us to share in the life and beatitude of His only-begotten Son, Jesus Christ. Thus by Divine adoption God is Our Father and we are His children. This adoption is effected through sanctifying grace, a Divine quality or supernatural habit infused into the soul by God, which blossoms into the vision of glory in life eternal.

A name applied (1) to any ancestor (Deuteronomy 1:11 ; 1 Kings 15:11 ; Matthew 3:9 ; 23:30 , etc.); and (2) as a title of respect to a chief, ruler, or elder, etc. (Judges 17:10 ; 18:19 ; 1 Samuel 10:12 ; 2 Kings 2:12 ; Matthew 23:9 , etc.). (3) The author or beginner of anything is also so called; e.g., Jabal and Jubal (Genesis 4:20,21 ; Compare Job 38:28 ). Applied to God (Exodus 4:22 ; Deuteronomy 32:6 ; 2 Samuel 7:14 ; Psalm 89:27,28 , etc.).
As denoting his covenant relation to the Jews (Jeremiah 31:9 ; Isaiah 63:16 ; 64:8 ; John 8:41 , etc.).
Believers are called God's "sons" (John 1:12 ; Romans 8:16 ; Matthew 6:4,8,15,18 ; 10:20,29 ). They also call him "Father" (Romans 1:7 ; 1 Corinthians 1:3 ; 2 co 1:2 ; Galatians 1:4 )

A — 1: πατήρ (Strong's #3962 — Noun Masculine — pater — pat-ayr' ) from a root signifying "a nourisher, protector, upholder" (Lat., pater, Eng., "father," are akin), is used (a) of the nearest ancestor, e.g., Matthew 2:22 ; (b) of a more remote ancestor, the progenitor of the people, a "forefather," e.g., Matthew 3:9 ; 23:30 ; 1 Corinthians 10:1 ; the patriarchs, 2 Peter 3:4 ; (c) one advanced in the knowledge of Christ, 1 John 2:13 ; (d) metaphorically, of the originator of a family or company of persons animated by the same spirit as himself, as of Abraham, Romans 4:11,12,16,17,18 , or of Satan, John 8:38,41,44 ; (e) of one who, as a preacher of the Gospel and a teacher, stands in a "father's" place, caring for his spiritual children, 1 Corinthians 4:15 (not the same as a mere title of honor, which the Lord prohibited, Matthew 23:9 ); (f) of the members of the Sanhedrin, as of those who exercised religious authority over others, Acts 7:2 ; 22:1 ; (g) of God in relation to those who have been born anew (John 1:12,13 ), and so are believers, Ephesians 2:18 ; 4:6 (cp. 2 Corinthians 6:18 ), and imitators of their "Father," Matthew 5:45,48 ; 6:1,4,6,8,9 , etc. Christ never associated Himself with them by using the personal pronoun "our;" He always used the singular, "My Father," His relationship being unoriginated and essential, whereas theirs is by grace and regeneration, e.g., Matthew 11:27 ; 25:34 ; John 20:17 ; Revelation 2:27 ; 3:5,21 ; so the Apostles spoke of God as the "Father" of the Lord Jesus Christ, e.g., Romans 15:6 ; 2 Corinthians 1:3 ; 11:31 ; Ephesians 1:3 ; Hebrews 1:5 ; 1 Peter 1:3 ; Revelation 1:6 ; (h) of God, as the "Father" of lights, i.e., the Source or Giver of whatsoever provides illumination, physical and spiritual, James 1:17 ; of mercies, 2 Corinthians 1:3 ; of glory, Ephesians 1:17 ; (i) of God, as Creator, Hebrews 12:9 (cp. Zechariah 12:1 ).
Note: Whereas the everlasting power and divinity of God are manifest in creation, His "Fatherhood" in spiritual relationship through faith is the subject of NT revelation, and waited for the presence on earth of the Son, Matthew 11:27 ; John 17:25 . The spiritual relationship is not universal, John 8:42,44 (cp. John 1:12 ; Galatians 3:26 ).
B — 1: πατρῷος (Strong's #3971 — Adjective — patroos — pat-ro'-os ) signifies "of one's fathers," or "received from one's fathers" (akin to A), Acts 22:3 ; 24:14 ; 28:17 . In the Sept. Proverbs 27:10 .
B — 2: πατρικός (Strong's #3967 — Adjective — patrikos — pat-ree-kos' ) "from one's fathers, or ancestors," is said of that which is handed down from one's "forefathers," Galatians 1:14 .
B — 3: ἀπάτωρ (Strong's #540 — Noun Masculine — apator — ap-at'-ore ) "without father" (a, negative, and pater), signifies, in Hebrews 7:3 , with no recorded genealogy.
B — 4: πατροπαράδοτος (Strong's #3970 — Adjective — patroparadotos — pat-rop-ar-ad'-ot-os ) "handed down from one's fathers" (pater, and paradidomi, "to hand down"), is used in 1 Peter 1:18 .
Charles Spurgeon's Illustration Collection - God: Acting as a Father
A king is sitting with his council deliberating on high affairs of state involving the destiny of nations, when suddenly he hears the sorrowful cry of his little child who has fallen down, or been frightened by a wasp; he rises and runs to his relief, assuages his sorrows and relieves his fears. Is there anything unkingly here? Is it not most natural? Does it not even elevate the monarch in your esteem? Why then do we think it dishonorable to the King of kings, our heavenly Father, to consider the small matters of his children? It is infinitely condescending, but is it not also superlatively natural that being a Father he should act as such?

Charles Spurgeon's Illustration Collection - Minister: Should be a Nursing Father
In a church in Verona stands, or rather sits, a wooden image of St. Zeno, an ancient bishop, with knees so ludicrously short that there is no lap on which a babe could be dandled. He was not the first nor the last ecclesiastic who has been utterly incapable of being a nursing father to the church. It were well if all ministers had a heavenly instinct for the nourishing and bringing up of the Lord's little ones. Is there not much lack in this?
Charles Spurgeon's Illustration Collection - Prayers: of a Father
Philip James Spener had a son of eminent talents, but perverse and extremely vicious. All means of love and persuasion were without success. The father could only ft ray , which he continued to do, that the Lord might yet be pleased to save his son at any time and in any way. The son fell sick; and while lying on his bed in great distress of mind, nearly past the power of speech or motion, he suddenly started up, clasped his hands, and exclaimed: 'My father's prayers, like mountains, surround me!' Soon after his anxiety ceased a sweet peace spread over his face, his malady came to a crisis, and the son was saved in body and soul. He became another man. Spener lived to see his son a respectable man, in public office, and happily married. Such was the change of his life after his conversion.: N. E. Puritan.

Morrish Bible Dictionary - Father
Except as creator and preserver of all, God is not revealed as Father in the O.T. "Have we not all one father? hath not one God created us?" Malachi 2:10 . The Lord Jesus is also prophesied of as 'the everlasting Father' or 'Father of the everlasting age.' Isaiah 9:6 . It was reserved for the N.T. times that God should be made known as Father; and this was done only by the Lord Jesus while upon earth, who constantly spoke to His disciples of God as their Father in heaven. Matthew 5:16,45,48 ; Matthew 6:1,8,14,15 , etc. He could, as the Son, while on earth thus make Him known to them. After the resurrection the Lord was able to send this message to His disciples, whom He now calls His 'brethren:' "I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God." John 20:17 . The will of the Father and the work of His Son, the source of eternal life to them, had brought the disciples in this respect into the same heavenly position as the risen Christ Himself before the Father. The term 'father' is used symbolically when there is a moral likeness between a leader and his followers. John 8:38-44 .
In the O.T. the word ab is at times used as 'founder:' thus in 1 Chronicles 4:4 one is mentioned as the 'father' of Bethlehem.
Fausset's Bible Dictionary - Father
Chaldaic 'abba . Christ's endearing filial mode of addressing God; so believers (Mark 14:36; Romans 8:15); from 'aabah , "to show kindness." God's fatherhood is the ground and pattern for human fatherhood. Abraham was "father of nations," both by natural descent from him and by spiritual fellowship in his faith (Genesis 18:18-19; Romans 4:17). The godly father's blessing brought great good, his curse great evil (Genesis 9:25-27); the undutifulness of Ham entailing a curse on his race, the dutifulness of Shem and Japhet a blessing on their races (Genesis 27:27-40; Genesis 48:15-20; Genesis 48:49). The fifth commandment, "honor thy father and mother," is the first with special promise (Ephesians 6:2).
Love descends rather than ascends; hence this commandment is more needed than one concerning parents' duties to children, but this is added (Ephesians 6:4; Colossians 3:21). Dishonoring parents is one of the worst sins (Exodus 21:15-17; 1 Timothy 1:9; Malachi 1:6; Isaiah 45:10). Still the parent was not to inflict death, but to bring the refractory child before the city elders in the gate or place of justice (Deuteronomy 21:18-21). Any ancestor is called "father" or "mother" (Isaiah 51:2; Jeremiah 35:16-18, the sons of Jonadab son of Rechab, a striking instance of the blessing on obedience to parents; Daniel 5:2; 2 Chronicles 15:16 margin). "Father" is used also for protector, patron (Job 29:16; Psalms 68:5; Deuteronomy 32:6). "Fathers" mean elders (Acts 7:2; Acts 22:1). The pupils of a spiritual master are called "sons" (2 Kings 2:3; 2 Kings 4:1).
"Father" expresses one worshipped or reverenced (Jeremiah 2:27; 2 Kings 2:12; 2 Kings 5:13; 2 Kings 6:21). The inventor of any art is called "father" of it or of its practicers (Genesis 4:20-21; John 8:44; Job 38:28; Job 17:14). So the source (2 Corinthians 1:3) or instrument of spiritual blessings, as "mercy," regeneration. 1 Corinthians 4:15; "though ye have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet have ye not many fathers; for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel." The father's great duty was to teach God's laws continually to his children; "speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, when thou liest down, and when thou risest up ... that your days may be multiplied, and the days of your children ... as the days of heaven upon the earth" (Deuteronomy 11:18-21).
A Dictionary of Early Christian Biography - Gordianus, Father of Pope Gregory the Great
Gordianus (7), father of pope Gregory the Great, was a noble Roman of senatorial rank; and descended from a pope Felix (Joann. Diac. in Vit. S. Gregorii ; Greg. Dialog. l. 4, c. 16). John the Deacon says that Felix IV. ( acc. 523) was his ancestor; but this pope being described as a Samnite, whereas Gregory is always spoken of as of Roman descent, Felix III. ( acc. 467) is more probable. A large property accrued to Gregory on his father's death. Gordianus is described as a religious man, and thus contributing to the eminently religious training of his son, though not canonized after death, as were his wife Silvia, and his two sisters, Tarsilla and Aemiliana. John the deacon ( op. cit. l. 4, c. 83) describes two pictures of him and his wife Silvia remaining to the writer's time (9th cent.) in the Atrium of St. Andrew's monastery, where they had been placed by St. Gregory himself, the founder of the monastery. Gordianus is represented as standing before a seated figure of St. Peter (who holds his right hand) and as clothed in a chestnut-coloured planeta over a dalmatic , and with caligae on his feet. Gordianus is designated "Regionarius," from which, as well as from his dress, Baronius supposes that he was one of the seven cardinal deacons of Rome, it having been not uncommon, he says, for married men, with the consent of their wives, to embrace clerical or monastic life. As to the dress, he adduces two of St. Gregory's epistles ( Ep. 113, l. i. ind. 2, and Ep. 28, l. 7, ind. 1) to shew that the dalmatic and caligae were then part of the costume of Roman deacons. But the meaning of the title "regionarius" is uncertain. It occurs in St. Gregory's Ephesians 5 , l. 7, ind. 1, in Ephesians 2 of pope Honorius I. (regionarius nostrae sedis); in Aimoinus, de Gestis Francorum , pt. 2, p. 247 (regionarius primae sedis); in Vit. Ludovici Pii , ann. 835 (regionarius Romanae urbis); and in Anastasius, On Constantine (Theophanes regionarius). In two of these instances, those from Honorius and Aimoinus, the persons so designated are expressly said to be subdeacons. It seems to have denoted an office connected with the city of Rome and the apostolic see, but certainly not one confined to deacons. As to the dress, it is merely originally ordinary lay costume, the planeta, rather than the casula, having been worn by persons of rank. St. Gregory himself, in his portrait in the same monastery described by John the deacon, wears precisely the same dress, even to the colour of the planeta, only having the pallium over it, to mark his ecclesiastical rank.

A Dictionary of Early Christian Biography - Hegesippus, Father of Church History
Hegesippus (1) , commonly known as the father of church history, although his works, except a few fragments which will be found in Routh (Rel. Sacr. i. pp. 207–219) and in Grabe ( Spicil. ii. 203–214), have perished. Nothing positive is known of his birth or early circumstances. From his use of the Gospel according to the Hebrews, written in the Syro-Chaldaic language of Palestine, his insertion in his history of words in the Hebrew dialect, and his mention of unwritten traditions of the Jews, Eusebius infers that he was a Hebrew ( H. E. iv. 22), but possibly, as conjectured by Weizsäcker (Herzog, Encyc. v. 647), Eusebius knew this as a fact from other sources also. We owe our only information as to his date to a statement of his own, preserved by Eusebius (iv. 22), which is understood to mean that at Rome he compiled a succession of the bishops of the Roman see to the time of Anicetus, whose deacon was Eleutherus. After this statement Hegesippus is represented as adding, "and to Anicetus succeeds Soter, after whom Eleutherus." Much as the interpretation of these words has been disputed, it does not seem difficult to gather that Hegesippus means that the list of bishops compiled by him at Rome was drawn from the authentic records of the church there. That list closed with Anicetus. He was afterwards able to add the names of Soter and Eleutherus. It thus appears that he was at Rome in the days of Anicetus and made his inquiries then, but did not publish them till considerably later. But Anicetus, according to Lipsius ( Chronologie der römischen Bischöfe ), was bp. of Rome 156–167, and Eleutherus 175–189. Hegesippus had thus written much of his history previous to a.d. 167, and published it in the time of Eleutherus, perhaps early in his episcopate. Any difficulty in accepting these dates has been occasioned by the rendering given to another passage of Eusebius (iv. 8), where he quotes Hegesippus as speaking of certain games (ἀγών ) instituted in honour of Antinous, a slave of Hadrian, of which he says ἐφ᾿ ἡμῶν γενόμενος (a better established reading than γινόμενος ). But these words seem simply to mean that the games had been instituted in his own time, thus illustrating the μέχρι νῦν of the preceding sentence. Hadrian reigned 117–138, so that if Hegesippus published c. 180, being then well advanced in life, he might well remember the times of that emperor. This derives confirmation from a statement of Jerome, generally regarded as somewhat extravagant, that the life of Hegesippus had bordered on the apostolic age ("vicinus apostolicorum temporum," de Vir. Ill. c. 22). But there is no extravagance in the remark. If Hegesippus was born c. 120 or earlier, he may well be described as having lived near the times of St. John. We may, therefore, fix the bloom of Hegesippus's life about the middle of the 2nd cent.
His history embraced, so far as we may judge from its fragments, numerous miscellaneous observations, recollections, and traditions, jotted down without regard to order, as they occurred to the author or came under his notice during his travels. Jerome tells us that the work contained the events of the church from Palestine to Rome, and from the death of Christ to the writer's own day. It is not a regular history of the church, Weizsäcker well remarking that, in that case, the story of James the Just ought to have been found in the first book, not in the last.
Its general style was thought plain and unpretending, says Jerome, and with this description what remains sufficiently agrees. The question of its trustworthiness is of greater moment. The account given in it of James the head of the church in Jerusalem has led to many charges against Hegesippus of not having been careful enough to prove what he relates. He has been thought to be contradicted by Josephus, who tells us that "Ananus, the high-priest, assembled the Sanhedrin of judges, and brought before them the brother of Jesus Who was called Christ, whose name was James, and some others. And, when he had formed an accusation against them, he delivered them to be stoned" (Ant. xx. 9, 2). We may be permitted to doubt, however, whether the sentence thus referred to was carried out, for not only was it unlawful for the Sanhedrin to punish by death without consent of the Roman authorities, but Josephus informs us immediately after that the charge of the citizens against Ananus was, that it was not lawful for him to assemble a Sanhedrin without the procurator's assent, nothing being said of the stoning to death. Further, Eusebius, who has preserved the narrative of Hegesippus, and the early Fathers who allude to it, appear to have placed in it implicit confidence; and there is nothing improbable in most, if not even in all, of the particulars mentioned. Eusebius speaks of him in the most commendatory terms, and quotes him on numerous occasions (see H. E. ii. 23; iii. 11, 16, 20, 32; iv. 8, 11, 22), illustrating his own words in iv. 8, πλείσταις κεχρήμεθα φωναῖς . Such confidence appears to have been deserved. Hegesippus had an inquiring mind, and had travelled much; he endeavoured to learn all he could of the past and present state of the churches that he visited: at Corinth the first epistle of Clement excited his curiosity; at Rome the history of its early bishops. All this, and his unpretending and unexaggerated style, shows him as very far from being either a hasty observer or a credulous chronicler.
An important question remains: Was Hegesippus of the Judaizing Christian party?
Baur looks upon him as representing the narrowest section of the Jewish Christians even as a most declared enemy of St. Paul travelling like a commissioned agent in the interests of the Judaizers (K. G. i. p. 84; so also Schwegler Nachap. Zeit i. p. 342 etc.). This view is founded mainly upon an extract from his works preserved in Photius (see in Routh R. S. i. p. 219) where Hegesippus comments on the words "Eye hath not seen nor ear heard neither have entered into the heart of man the things which God hath prepared for the just," "Such words are spoken in vain and those who use them lie against the Holy Scriptures and the Lord Who says 'Blessed are your eyes for they see and your ears for they hear.'" It is argued that Hegesippus is here directly attacking St. Paul's words in 1Co_2:9; and the inference is that Hegesippus was keenly Judaic. We know that the Gnostics were in the habit of so using the words in question and that they described by means of them the very essence of that spiritual insight which the neophyte who had just sworn the oath of allegiance to them received "And when he
[1] has sworn this oath he goes on to the Good One and beholds 'whatever things eye hath not seen and ear hath not heard and which have not entered into the heart of man'" (Hippolytus Ref. of all Heresies i. p. 193 T. &T. Clark). It is much the more probable inference therefore that Hegesippus refers to this Gnostic misinterpretation of the words and not to St. Paul (cf. Routh R. S. i. p. 281; Ritschl Die Entstehung der Altk. Kirche p. 267; Hilgenfeld Die Apost. Väter p. 102). Further Hegesippus must have known that Clement whose epistle he approved quotes in c. xxxiv. for a purpose precisely similar to that of the apostle the very passage in question though with a slight variation in the words. How then can he have held the contrary opinion as to the use made of it by St. Paul? It is obviously a particular application of the passage different from that of the apostle that he has in view.
In the light of these considerations, Hegesippus appears to have been not a Judaizing but a Catholic Christian; and, if so, he becomes a witness not only for the catholicity in the main of the Christian church of the 2nd cent., but for the extent to which Catholic truth prevailed in it, for his evidence, whatever its purport, has reference to the condition of the church upon a large scale. Either, therefore, over this wide extent the church was as a whole marked by a narrow Judaic spirit, or over the same wide extent it was catholic in spirit, with heretical sects struggling to corrupt its faith. If our verdict be in favour of the latter view, it becomes impossible to look at Hegesippus in the light in which he has been presented by the Tübingen school. We must regard him as a Catholic, not as a Judaizing Christian, and his statements as to the condition of the church in his day become a powerful argument against, rather than in favour of, the conclusions of that school.

Hastings' Dictionary of the New Testament - Father, Fatherhood
FATHER, FATHERHOOD.—The one subject on which Jesus claimed to have unique and absolute knowledge was the Father (Matthew 11:27). Yet, in saying this, He evidently did not mean that He knew all that God knows. He confessed or implied that His knowledge was limited (e.g. Mark 13:32, Matthew 9:21-22); and the very fact that He looked up to God as His God is sufficient evidence that, by knowledge of the Father, He did not mean comprehension of the Infinite. The record of His life and teaching makes it plain that His unique knowledge of God was knowledge of the Divine character and purpose. This was the sphere in which He lived and moved and had His conscious being. This was the sphere of His revelation.
In setting forth Jesus’ conception of the Fatherhood of God, we shall consider (1) the use of the name ‘Father’; (2) the meaning of Fatherhood; (3) the Fatherhood of God in the Fourth Gospel; (4) the place of Fatherhood in the teaching of Jesus; and (5) Jesus’ conception of God compared with that of the OT and of His contemporaries.
1. Use of the name ‘Father’ by Jesus.—The first recorded sentence of Jesus (Luke 2:49), and that which was probably the last (Luke 23:46), both contain the name ‘Father.’ The boy of twelve felt an inward constraint to be engaged in the things of His Father, and twenty years later, expiring on the cross, it was into the hands of His Father that He commended His spirit. Throughout His ministry His use of this name is what we might expect from the scene which St. Luke records from His boyhood. ‘The child is father of the man.’ Whenever the personal relation between Him and God is involved, Jesus employs no name but ‘Father,’ if we except a single passage where He quotes from the 22nd Psalm (Mark 15:34). In each of the five prayers where the words of Jesus are given. He addresses God as ‘Father’ (Matthew 11:25-27; Matthew 26:39; Matthew 26:42, Luke 23:34; Luke 23:46); and in the longest of these, which includes only three verses, the name is repeated five times (Matthew 11:25-27). When speaking of God in the third person, Jesus refers to Him once as ‘the Great King’ (Matthew 5:35), and once as ‘Lord of the harvest’ (Matthew 9:38); but in almost every case He uses the name ‘God’ or the name ‘Father.’ He never employs such circumlocutions as ‘the Blessed One’ and ‘Holy One,’ and never uses abstract designations such as ‘Place,’ all of which were common in the synagogue. It is significant to compare with this usage that of Philo, whose commonest titles of God are abstract (e.g. τὸ ὄν, τὸ ὄντως ὄν, τὸ πρὸς ἀληθινὸν ὄν, ὁ ὤν—Drummond, Philo Judaeus, ii. 20). The name by which Jesus Himself addressed God was also the name which He put on the lips of His disciples. It was their privilege to share His communion with God (Matthew 6:9; Matthew 23:9).
2. The Meaning of Fatherhood.—What Jesus meant by the term ‘Father’ is to be learned both from His words and from His life. From His words we infer that He chose this term to describe the character of God. Thus He teaches that, as it is the very nature of a father to give good gifts to his children, so it is the very nature of God to give His good things to those who ask Him (Matthew 7:11, Luke 11:13). Earthly fathers, though evil, give to their children; much more will God give, who is absolutely and unchangeably good (Mark 10:18). He is ready to bestow the Kingdom of heaven upon the poor in spirit, and to give the vision of Himself to the pure in heart (Matthew 5:3; Matthew 5:8); that is to say, He gives the best He has to any who will receive it. And even upon those who will not receive the best, He bestows much; for He maketh His sun to rise on the evil, and sendeth rain on the unjust (Matthew 5:45). Jesus exhorts His hearers to have this spirit in order that they may become sons of the heavenly Father and share His perfection (Matthew 5:45; Matthew 5:48). Accordingly the term ‘Fatherhood’ describes what God is in Himself. It does not concern merely or chiefly His relation to men, but it declares His very spirit, that which lies behind all relationships.
The story of the Lost Son perfectly interprets Jesus’ conception of Fatherhood (Luke 15:11-32). The lost son does not stand for a lost Israelite merely, a fallen member of the theocratic people, but represents the sinner, whether Jew or Gentile. For, in the first place, the parable was spoken to justify Jesus’ reception of publicans (Luke 15:1-2), and publicans were rated as no better than Gentiles (Matthew 18:17); and, in the second place, the conclusion of Jesus in the parables of the Lost Sheep and the Lost Coin, which are manifestly parallel to that of the Lost Son, is perfectly general. He there declares that there is joy in heaven over one sinner who repents (Luke 15:7; Luke 15:10). Therefore, when Jesus, in the story of the Lost Son, says that the father watched and longed for his son’s return, and welcomed him at last with kisses and a joyful feast. He teaches that the Fatherhood of God is essential, and therefore a fact of universal significance. It is in keeping with this when Jesus, addressing the multitudes as well as His disciples, said to all who heard Him, ‘Call no man your father on earth: for one is your Father, who is in heaven’ (Matthew 23:1; Matthew 23:9). If we had more of the addresses of Jesus to the multitudes, we should probably have more instances of this same usage.
Again, the very life of Jesus shows what He meant by the Fatherhood of God, for He surely felt that the spirit of this Fatherhood was manifested through Him. He portrayed His own attitude towards the lost when He drew the picture of the father and his lost son. His brotherhood interpreted the spirit of the Divine Fatherhood. But the brotherhood of Jesus describes what He was. He did not simulate brotherliness. It was by the very necessity of His holy and loving will that He was the friend of sinners. It is impossible, therefore, to suppose that, in His thought, the Fatherhood of God was something less than essential, a figure setting forth His gracious relationship to certain favoured people. As His own love flowed out to men irrespective of all merely outward circumstances, and as He believed that He knew the Father and was in harmony with His will. He must have believed that God loves men irrespective of all outward circumstances; in other words, that His Fatherhood is essential, and hence of universal significance.
It is true that Jesus considered Himself sent to the lost sheep of the house of Israel, and that He confined His labours chiefly to them; but it is equally true that this was solely a matter of order. He told the Canaanitish woman that the children should be fed first (Mark 7:27), which plainly suggests that the gospel was for all, but that for some reason it was to be offered first to the Jews. Moreover, He granted the woman’s request, though He thus spoke; and in no case did He turn a Gentile away empty who came to Him for help. He healed a Samaritan leper (Luke 17:18), and the servant of a Gentile centurion (Matthew 8:13). There is no indication that they were less dear to Him than were the Jews.
We conclude, therefore, both from the words and the life of Jesus, that He called God our Father, not because God created us,—a view common in Philo,—or because He rules over us, or because of the covenant which He made with Abraham, but simply and only because He loves us. The abstract statement that ‘God is love’ (1 John 4:8) is a true interpretation of the word ‘Father’ as used by Jesus.
3. The Fatherhood of God in the Fourth Gospel.—The Fatherhood of God is more conspicuous in John than in the Synoptics, the word ‘Father’ occurring about 90 times as against 5 in Mark, 17 in Luke, and 45 in Matthew. Here also, as in the Synoptics, the word is found only on the lips of Jesus, with the exception of three passages where the author speaks from his own Christian point of view (John 1:18; John 8:27; John 13:3), and one passage in which he attributes his Christian usage to the Baptist (3:35).
The new feature of the subject in the Fourth Gospel is the emphasis laid on the universality of Fatherhood. Thus it is the world (κόσμος) which God is represented as loving up to the point of the highest sacrifice (John 3:16). It is all men whom Jesus will draw unto Himself (John 12:32). In offering life to a Samaritan, Jesus feels that He is accomplishing the Father’s will (John 4:10; John 4:34), and a visit of certain Greeks brought before His soul the vision of a great harvest for the Kingdom of God (John 12:20-24).
Still more noticeable, and more divergent from the earlier usage, is the employment of ‘Father’ in an absolute sense. The extent of this usage in John is not altogether clear. In the conversation with the Samaritan woman, Fatherhood is plainly universal: ‘The hour cometh and now is when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and truth: for such doth the Father seek to be his worshippers’; ‘Believe me, the hour cometh when neither in this mountain nor in Jerusalem shall ye worship the Father’ (John 4:21; John 4:23). Another passage which admits of no doubt is John 20:17 ‘I am not yet ascended to the Father. But go to my brethren and say to them, I ascend to my Father and your Father, and my God and your God.’ It is quite clear that the word ‘Father’ in the first clause is unlimited; for, in the later clauses, He who is here called ‘the Father’ is called by Jesus ‘my Father and your Father.’ Two other cases of what appears to be the same use of the word are John 6:27; John 6:46.
In about one quarter of the passages where God is called ‘Father,’ He is so called in reference to Jesus, and the language is ‘my Father’ (e.g. John 2:16; John 5:17; John 6:32). Since, now, there are some passages in which the absolute sense of ‘Father’ is required, and since in the majority of the other passages, where the expression ‘the Father’ is used, there is nothing which requires us to adopt a limited idea of Fatherhood, it must be regarded as probable that the author always employed the word in an unlimited sense when he did not associate a personal pronoun with it. Thus the Fourth Gospel would place a very striking emphasis on the thought that the Fatherhood of God is essential and universal. Such emphasis on this point in the teaching of John was, of course, made natural by the missionary activity of the early Church, which had gone forward many years before the Fourth Gospel was composed.
The meaning of Fatherhood in the Fourth Gospel is the same as in the primitive tradition. It describes the character of God, and is expressed in love. It is perhaps probable that the author of the Fourth Gospel occasionally used the term ‘Father’ in a metaphysical sense (John 1:14; John 1:18), but he has put no words on the lips of Jesus which require to be taken metaphysically. He often represents Jesus as saying ‘my Father,’ but it is unquestionable that Jesus would have every man address God in just this way. He taught His disciples to say ‘our Father,’ which, of course, implies that each individual may say ‘my Father.’ When Jesus, to comfort His disciples, is represented as sending them the message, ‘I ascend unto my Father and your Father, and my God and your God’ (John 20:17), He does not separate Himself from them by claiming a unique relationship to the Father, even God, but rather joins Himself closely with them by the thought that one and the same Father is theirs and His alike, one God the God of both. The Fatherhood of God according to Jesus, even in the Fourth Gospel, is one and ethical, but His appreciation and appropriation of that Fatherhood are unique.
4. The Place of Fatherhood in the teaching of Jesus.—In accordance with the fact that the sole subject on which Jesus claimed to possess unique knowledge was the character of God, or, as we may now say, the Fatherhood of God, we find that this truth is central and determinative in all His teaching. His conception of the Kingdom of heaven was dependent on His conception of the character of God. The Kingdom which He wished to see come on earth was the Kingdom of the Father (Matthew 6:9), a Kingdom in which the will of the Father should be done. Therefore the conception of the Kingdom of heaven is not the fundamental thought of Jesus. Nor was His teaching determined by His sense of the imperfections of the Law. These imperfections He saw clearly, but not because of a critical analysis of the Law such as a philosophical student of history might make. He considered the Law from above, as one who possessed in Himself a higher standard, a more perfect knowledge of the Divine will. His work was, indeed, to fulfil the Law, and to establish the Kingdom of God on earth; but the inspiring and ruling thought in all His work was the truth of God’s Fatherhood. What He teaches of man’s relation to God is determined by this truth. It is gathered up in the thought of sonship. The lost son is to return to the Father. His life is to be one of filial service in the Father’s presence. And it is the goodness of the Father that draws him back.
The Fatherhood of God requires that the spirit of the religious life shall be love, out of which will be born perfect trust. It invites and draws man to communion with God, and determines the character of his devotion. What Jesus teaches of man’s relation to man is also determined by His consciousness of the character of God. His morality is purely religious. The ethical life of His disciples is to be controlled by the fact of their sonship to God. The standard of that life is the very quality which constitutes the perfection of God (Matthew 5:48). It is one and the same quality that makes Him the Father and makes man His son. Thus the entire teaching of Jesus is but the interpretation of the fact of God’s Fatherhood. This is the sun in His heaven which lights and warms the broad field of human life.
5. Jesus’ conception of God compared with that of the OT, and with views of His contemporaries.—The new revelation which Jesus gave of the character of God was put into a term which had long been applied to Him in Israel. The first of the great prerogatives of the Jewish people which are enumerated by St. Paul is the adoption (Romans 9:4), that is, the appointment of Israel to be in a peculiar sense God’s son. This thought was derived from the OT. God’s message to Pharaoh by Moses involved a paternal relation to Israel, for Moses was to say in God’s name, ‘Israel is my son, my first-born’ (Exodus 4:22). Again, Deuteronomy represents Moses as saying to the people, ‘As a man chasteneth his son, so the Lord thy God chasteneth thee’ (Deuteronomy 8:5; Deuteronomy 32:6); and the Lord says in Hosea that when Israel was a child He loved him and called His son out of Egypt (Hosea 11:1; Hosea 1:10). In these passages, and in a few more, God is thought of as a Father to the people of Israel as a whole; and He is the Father of Israel because He made them a nation and established them by His mighty power (Deuteronomy 32:6). So far His Fatherhood is wholly national. There are, however, other passages in which we have an individualizing of the thought of Fatherhood. Thus the Lord says of the theocratic descendant of David, ‘I will be his father, and he shall be my son’ (2 Samuel 7:14); and the Messianic king puts the decree of Jehovah concerning himself in these words, ‘Thou art my son; this day have I begotten thee’ (Psalms 2:7). There is also an individualizing of God’s Fatherhood with reference to other persons, for the Psalter calls Him the Father of the fatherless; and His pity for those who fear Him is like the pity of a father for his children (Psalms 68:5; Psalms 103:13). Yet in all these passages we see only the relation of God to His chosen people, or to a particular class among them, or to His chosen king. ‘Father’ is a word of relation, not yet a description of God’s very character. It marks an advance upon that conception of Fatherhood which is derived from the fact of creation, but it is still far removed from the view of Jesus. The OT gave to Jesus the name ‘Father’ for God, but He filled it with a new content.
When we come down from the OT to the time of Jesus, we find among the Jews a conception of God that is far more widely unlike that of the gospel, and which by contrast serves to bring out the thought of Jesus into strong relief. This Jewish conception of God was based on the traditional interpretation of the Law, not on the spiritual teaching of the Prophets. God was put further and further away; the conception of Him became increasingly abstract and transcendental.
Even as early as the translation of the OT into Greek (3rd cent. b.c.) this tendency towards a more abstract conception of God is manifest. The translators sought to remove the thought that God bad come into actual contact with men. They do not, with Exodus 15:3, call God a ‘man of war,’ but render the passage by ‘the Lord who makes war.’ Moses no longer goes up ‘to God in the mount,’ as the original reads (Exodus 19:3), but he goes up ‘to the mount of God.’ Moses and those with him did not see the God of Israel (Exodus 24:9-10), but they saw the place where He stood.
As in the Greek translation of the OT, so in the Targums of Onkelos and Jonathan (1st cent. b.c.) appears the tendency to safeguard the holiness of God by removing Him far from men. An illustration may be cited from Genesis 18:8. It is said there that the heavenly visitants ate of the repast which Abraham had provided, but Onkelos changes it to ‘it seemed to him as though they ate.’ Such was the method of the Targumists. With the removal of God far from men there came to be associated in the course of time an elaborate doctrine of angels—a natural it not necessary correlate of the transcendental conception of God.
But though the scribes removed God far from contact with man and the world, their conception of Him was unspiritual.
He is pictured in the Talmud of Jerusalem as a great Rabbi. He studies the Law three hours each day, and observes all its ordinances. He keeps the Sabbath. He makes vows, and on their accomplishment He is released by the heavenly Sanhedrin. He also fulfils the injunction to rise up before the hoary head (see Gfrörer, Das Jahrhundert des Heils, i. 276; Weber, Jud. Theol.2 [1] pp. 17, 18). Thus the external, ceremonial conception of religion at last took complete possession of the future world, and threw the mesh of its enslavement to the letter even around God Himself. The prophet’s spiritual conception of Jehovah was lost; the glow of lovingkindness which they beheld in His face faded out utterly, and there remained a Being who was called ‘the Holy one,’ interesting perhaps to the scribe, but whom no one could really love.
To this conception of God the revelation of His Fatherhood by Jesus formed an absolute contrast. The scribes put God in the seventh heaven; Jesus taught that He is near. The scribes held that He is intensely concerned with outward ordinances; Jesus taught that He is full of love, and cares only for the heart of man. To the scribal mind God was the God of scribes; to Jesus He was the Father of all men. The religious teachers of Jesus’ time fell very far below the prophetic conception of God; Jesus rose still further above it.

The Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary - Father
This name in Scripture hath many applications. Not only the father of a family and head of an house or tribe, but also it is frequently put for the inventor of any art or science. Thus Jubal is said to have been the father of such as dwell in tents; and "Tubal the father of all such as handle the harp or organ." (Genesis 4:20) And in a yet more interesting sense, the word of God calls them father, who stand distinguished in the church in a way of pre-eminency, such as Abraham, the father of the faithful, so called for the greatness of his faith. And so on the contrary, the wicked and ungodly are called evil. Hence Christ told the enemies of his gospel, "Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do." (John 8:44)
But while we carefully attend to these distinctions, respecting the application of the name of father in Scripture it should be always kept in remembrance that the name Father is in a peculiar and blessed sense had in special reference to God, as "the father of our Lord Jesus Christ, of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named." (Ephesians 3:14-15)
Hence, in relation to him under this sweet appellation and character, the Lord Jesus himself said to Mary after he arose from the dead, "I ascend unto my Father and your Father, and to my God and your God." (John 20:17) Christ also is the everlasting Father of his church and people. (Isaiah 9:6) I refer the reader to what was said under the article Abba, for the farther view of the blessedness of this relationship. Nothing can be more sweet or consolatory. (Let the reader consult also those Scriptures, Matthew 23:9; Isaiah 63:16; Malachi 2:10)
Vine's Expository Dictionary of OT Words - Father
Âb (אָב, Strong's #1), “father; grandfather; forefather; ancestor.” Cognates of this word occur in Ugaritic, Akkadian, Phoenician, and other Semitic languages. Biblical Hebrew attests it about 1,120 times and in all periods.
Basically, 'âb relates to the familial relationship represented by the word “father.” This is the word’s significance in its first biblical appearance: “Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife …” (Gen. 2:24). In poetical passages, the word is sometimes paralleled to 'âb, “mother”: “I have said to corruption, Thou art my father: to the worm, Thou art my mother, and my sister” (Job 17:14). The word is also used in conjunction with “mother” to represent one’s parents (Lev. 19:3). But unlike the word ’em, 'âb is never used of animals.
'Âb also means “grandfather” and/or “greatgrandfather,” as in Gen. 28:13: “I am the Lord God of Abraham thy [1]father, and the God of Isaac.…” Such progenitors on one’s mother’s side were called “thy mother’s father” (Gen. 28:2). This noun may be used of any one of the entire line of men from whom a given individual is descended: “But he [2] himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a juniper tree: and he requested for himself that he might die; and said, It is enough; now, O Lord, take away my life; for I am not better than my fathers” (1 Kings 19:4). In such use, the word may refer to the first man, a “forefather,” a clan (Jer. 35:6), a tribe (Josh. 19:47), a group with a special calling (1 Chron. 24:19), a dynasty (1 Kings 15:3), or a nation (Josh. 24:3). Thus, “father” does not necessarily mean the man who directly sired a given individual.
This noun sometimes describes the adoptive relationship, especially when it is used of the “founder of a class or station,” such as a trade: “And Adah bare Jabal: he was the father of such as dwell in tents, and of such as have cattle” (Gen. 4:20).
'Âb can be a title of respect, usually applied to an older person, as when David said to Saul: “Moreover, my father, see, yea, see the skirt of thy robe in my hand …” (1 Sam. 24:11). The word is also applied to teachers: “And Elisha saw it, and he cried, My father, my father, the chariot of Israel, and the horsemen thereof …” (2 Kings 2:12). In 2 Kings 6:21, the word is applied to the prophet Elisha and in Judg. 17:10, to a priest; this word is also a title of respect when used of “one’s husband”: “Wilt thou not from this time cry unto me, My father, thou art the guide of my youth?” (Jer. 3:4). In Gen. 45:8, the noun is used of an “advisor”: “So now it was not you that sent me hither, but God: and he hath made me a father [3] to Pharaoh, and lord of all his house, and a ruler throughout all the land of Egypt.” In each case, the one described as “father” occupied a position or status and received the honor due to a “father.”
In conjunction with bayit (“house”), the word 'âb may mean “family”: “In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers …” (Exod. 12:3). Sometimes the plural of the word used by itself can represent “family”: “… These are the heads of the fathers [4] of the Levites according to their families” (Exod. 6:25).
God is described as the “father” of Israel (Deut. 32:6). He is the One who begot and protected them, the One they should revere and obey. Mal. 2:10 tells us that God is the “father” of all people. He is especially the “protector” or “father” of the fatherless: “A father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows, is God in his holy habitation” (Ps. 68:5). As the “father” of a king, God especially aligns Himself to that man and his kingdom: “I will be his father, and he shall be my son. If he commit iniquity, I will chasten him with the rod of men, and with the stripes of the children of men” (2 Sam. 7:14). Not every king was a son of God—only those whom He adopted. In a special sense, the perfect King was God’s adopted Son: “I will declare the decree: the Lord hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee” (Ps. 2:7). The extent, power, and duration of His kingdom are guaranteed by the Father’s sovereignty (cf. Ps. 2:8-9). On the other hand, one of the Messiah’s enthronement names is “Eternal Father”: “… And his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace” (Isa. 9:6).
Watson's Biblical & Theological Dictionary - Father
This word, beside its common acceptation, is taken in Scripture for grandfather, great-grandfather, or the founder of a family, how remote soever. So the Jews in our Saviour's time called Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, their fathers. Jesus Christ is called the Son of David, though David was many generations distant from him. By father is likewise understood the institutor of a certain profession. Jabal "was father of such as dwell in tents, and such as have cattle." Jubal "was father of all such as handle the harp and organ," or flute, &c, Genesis 4:20-21 . Huram is called father of the king of Tyre, 2 Chronicles 2:13 ; and, 2 Chronicles 4:16 , even of Solomon, because he was the principal workman, and chief director of their undertakings. The principal prophets were considered as fathers of the younger, who were their disciples, and are called sons of the prophets, 2 Kings 2:12 . Father is a term of respect given by inferiors to superiors. "My father," said Naaman's attendants to him, "if the prophet had bid thee do some great thing," 2 Kings 5:13 ; and so the king of Israel addresses the prophet Elisha, 2 Kings 6:21 . Rechab, the founder of the Rechabites, is called their father, Jeremiah 35:6 . A man is said to be a father to the poor and orphans, when he supplies their necessities, and sympathizes with their miseries, as a father would do toward them: "I was a father to the poor," says Job 29:16 . God declares himself to be the "Father of the fatherless, and Judge of the widow," Psalms 68:5 . God is frequently called our heavenly Father, and simply our Father; eminently the Father, Preserver, and Protector of all, especially of those who invoke him, and serve him: "Is he not thy Father that bought thee?" says Moses, Deuteronomy 32:6 . Since the coming of Jesus Christ, we have a new right to call God our Father, by reason of the adoption which our Saviour has merited for us, by clothing himself in our humanity, and purchasing us by his death: "Ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God," Romans 8:15 . Job entitles God "the Father of rain," Job 38:28 ; he produces it, and causes it to fall. The devil is called the father of the wicked and the father of lies, John 8:44 . He deceived Eve and Adam; he introduced sin and falsehood; he inspires his followers with his spirit and sentiments. The father of Sichem, the father of Tekoah, the father of Bethlehem, &c, signify the chief persons who inhabited these cities; he who built or rebuilt them. Adam is the first father, the father of the living; Abraham is the father of the faithful, the father of the circumcision; called also the "father of many nations," because many people sprung from him; as the Jews, Ishmaelites, Arabs, &c. God is called "the Father of spirits," Hebrews 12:9 . He not only creates them, but he justifies, sanctifies, and glorifies them, and thus confers upon them eternal happiness.
American Tract Society Bible Dictionary - Father
Is often synonymous with ancestor, founder, or originator, as Genesis 4:20-21 John 8:56 Romans 4:16 . Joseph was a father to Pharoah, Genesis 45:8 , as his counselor and provider. God is the Deuteronomy 32:6 Isaiah 63:16 64:8 Luke 3:38 . But as we have forfeited the rights of children by our sins, it is only through Christ that we can call God by that endearing name, "our Father," John 20:17 Romans 8:15-17 .
In patriarchal times, a father was master and judge in his own household, and exercised and authority almost unlimited over his family. Filial disobedience or disrespect was a high offence. Under the law, certain acts of children were capital crimes, Exodus 21:15,17 Leviticus 20:9 ; and the father was required to bring his son to the public tribunal, Deuteronomy 21:18-21 . See MOTHER .
Smith's Bible Dictionary - Father
The position and authority of the father as the head of the family are expressly assumed and sanctioned in Scripture, as a likeness of that of the Almighty over his creatures. It lies of course at the root of that so-called patriarchal government, (Genesis 3:16 ; 1 Corinthians 11:3 ) which was introductory to the more definite systems which followed, and which in part, but not wholly, superseded it. The father's blessing was regarded as conferring special benefit, but his malediction special injury, on those on whom it fell, (Genesis 9:25,27 ; 27:27-40 ; 48:15,20 ; 49:1 ) ... and so also the sin of a parent was held to affect, in certain cases, the welfare of his descendants. (2 Kings 5:27 ) The command to honor parents is noticed by St. Paul as the only one of the Decalogue which bore a distinct promise, (Exodus 20:12 ; Ephesians 6:2 ) and disrespect towards them was condemned by the law as one of the worst crimes. (Exodus 21:15,17 ; 1 Timothy 1:9 ) It is to this well-recognized theory of parental authority and supremacy that the very various uses of the term "father" in Scripture are due. "Fathers" is used in the sense of seniors, (Acts 7:2 ; 22:1 ) and of parents in general, or ancestors. (Daniel 5:2 ; Jeremiah 27:7 ; Matthew 23:30,32 )
Bridgeway Bible Dictionary - Father
A basic element in fatherhood is that it is related to origins, to bringing things into existence (Genesis 17:5). Consequently, the Bible speaks about God as the Father of creation, for he is the source of all things (Numbers 16:22; Isaiah 64:8; Malachi 2:10; Luke 3:38; Hebrews 12:9; James 1:17; see GOD). This is possibly one aspect of God’s fatherhood that Paul refers to when he points out that all fatherhood comes ultimately from God. Earthly fathers exist only because there is a heavenly Father (Ephesians 3:14-15). (For the responsibilities of fathers in human society see FAMILY.)
People in Bible times used the word ‘father’ as a respectful way of referring to their ancestors (Psalms 22:4; Hebrews 1:1; see ANCESTORS). They even used it to refer to their spiritual leaders, especially those who brought them to know God (2 Kings 6:21; 2 Kings 13:14; 1 Corinthians 4:14-15; 1 Timothy 1:2; 1 Timothy 1:18; 1 Peter 5:13; cf. Matthew 23:7-12). But the Bible’s most important use of ‘father’ is in relation to God.
Father of his people
When the Bible speaks of God’s fatherhood of his people, there is again a variety of meanings. In Old Testament times God was the Father of the nation Israel. He made Israel his people by covenant, and cared for them as a father cares for his children (Exodus 4:22; Deuteronomy 1:31; Deuteronomy 8:5; Hosea 11:1; Malachi 1:6; John 8:41). In particular he was Father to the king of his chosen people, and more particularly still, of the Messiah, whom Israel’s king foreshadowed (2 Samuel 7:14; Psalms 2:7; cf. Acts 13:33; Hebrews 1:5; see MESSIAH). In addition to all this, God was Father in a special sense to the true believers within the nation (Psalms 103:13; Isaiah 63:16; Malachi 3:17; John 8:42).
The New Testament shows that God is Father to all who believe in him – not just Israelites, but believers of all nations (Romans 1:7; 1 Corinthians 1:2-3). All people, regardless of nationality, are dead in sin, but those who repent of their sin and believe in Jesus are ‘born again’. They receive new life from God and so become God’s children (John 1:12-13; Ephesians 2:1; see REGENERATION). To use another picture, God adopts them into his family and gives them the status and privileges of full-grown sons (Galatians 4:4-6; see ADOPTION). Believers therefore can speak to God confidently as their Father (Matthew 6:9; Luke 11:9-13; Romans 8:15-16; see ABBA; PRAYER). Yet they must also reverence him, for he is their judge (Matthew 6:14-15; 1 Peter 1:17).
God, on his part, cares for his children’s needs and makes them heirs of his inheritance (Matthew 6:32; Luke 12:32; Romans 8:17), though he also chastises them when they do wrong (2 Samuel 7:14-15; Hebrews 12:7-11; see CHASTISEMENT). God’s children are to develop lives whose character is like that of their Father (Matthew 5:48).
Father of Jesus Christ
The highest sense in which God is Father is as the Father of Jesus Christ (John 1:18; John 5:36; Romans 15:6; 2 Corinthians 1:3). But his fatherhood of Jesus is different from his fatherhood of believers (cf. John 20:17).
God did not make Jesus his Son as he makes believers his sons. Jesus always has been the Son of God. There is no suggestion that God the Father existed first and God the Son came into existence later. The Father and the Son, both being God, have existed eternally, but they have existed eternally in this relationship of Father and Son. Though distinct persons, they are inseparably united (John 10:30; John 14:10; see SON OF GOD; TRINITY).
As the Son, Jesus alone has true knowledge of the Father. Therefore, only through the Son is the Father revealed to the world, and only through the Son can the world come to know the Father (Matthew 11:27; John 1:18; John 5:18; John 10:15; John 14:6-7).

Mississippi - When Father Marquette passed down the Mississippi to the mouth of the Arkansas in 1673, with Louis Joliet, he founded no missions on either side of the river, nor did the Recollects, Father Zenobius Membre and Father Anastase Douay, who accompanied La Salle in 1682, though they preached to the Taensa and Natchez Indians of Mississippi. The first missions within the present limits of Mississippi were founded, 1698, by priests of the Quebec Seminary; Father Frangois de Montigny devoting himself to the Taensas above Natchez and Father Antoine Davion to the Tonicas near the present Fort Adams. The next year their associate, Father Jean Frangois de Saint Cosme, settled at Natchez. The French settlers of Old Biloxi, near Ocean Springs, established by Iberville in 1699, and abandoned for Mobile in 1702, were served first by Father Bordenave and then by the Jesuits, Father Paul du Ru, and Father Pierre Donge. After the death of Father Nicholas Foucault, 1702, and Father Saint Cosme, 1706, at the hands of treacherous Indians in Mississippi, the missions were for a time almost abandoned.

It occurs three times in the New Testament, and is always followed by 'father,' and translated Abba Father; that is, the 'abba' is transcribed and not translated: if it were translated it would be 'Father Father. ' In the Greek it stands thus: ἀββᾶ ὁ πατήρ the 'Abba' being Aramaic, and the 'Father' Greek. Jehovah asked, "Hath the rain a Father?" Job 38:28 . it appears to be used in a stricter sense of relationship: "Ye have received the Spirit of adoption [1] , whereby we cry, Abba Father," Romans 8:15 ; and "because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba Father. The only other instance is when the Lord thus addresses His Father, Mark 14:36 ; and the Spirit in the hearts of believers puts the very words He used into their lips. It has been suggested that in the two words the Jew and the Gentile each say 'Father' in his own language — the Aramaic being then spoken by the Jews, and Greek the language of the Gentiles in Palestine and many other places. , but it was reserved for New Testament times for Him to be made known to believers in the relationship of Father: cf

Procession of the Holy Ghost - A term made use of in reference to the Holy Ghost, as proceeding from the Father, or from the Father and the Son. "When the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, He shall testify of me. This procession, it is alleged, is here evidently distinguished from his mission; from the Father, even the Spirit of Truth, which proceeds from the Father. Watts, however, observes, that the procession of the Holy Ghost from the Father, respects not his nature or substance, but his mission only; and that no distinct and clear ideas can be formed of this procession; consequently it must be given up as popish, scholastic, inconceivable, and indefensible. But, it is answered, what clear idea can be given us of the originate, self-existent, eternal being of the Father? Shall we, therefore, deny him to be without beginning or end, and to be self-existent, because we know not how he is so? If not, why must we give up the procession of the Spirit, because we know not the mode of it. ...
We can no more explain the manner how the Spirit proceeds from the Father, than we can explain the eternal generation and hypostatical union of the two natures of the Son. We may say to the objector, as Gregory Nazianzen formerly did to his adversary, "Do you tell me how the Father is unbegotten, and I will attempt to tell you how the Son is begotten, and the Spirit proceeds. "The Spirit which is of God;" that is (say the advocates for this doctrine, ) the Spirit which is the same in nature and essence with the Father, and so is said to be of him, or out of him, not as to local separation, but with respect to identity of nature. About the eighth and ninth centuries there was a very warm dispute between the Greek and Latin churches, whether the Spirit proceeded from the Father only, or from the Father and the Son; and the controversy arose to such a height, that they charged one another with heresy and schism, when neither side well understood what they contended for. The Latin church, however, has not scrupled to say that the Spirit proceeds from the Father and the Son; but the Greek church chooses to express it thus: the Spirit proceeds from the Father by or through the Son, or he receives of the Son, Galatians 4:6
Michigan - The first Indians of Michigan to have the Gospel preached to them were the Chippewas living near Sault Sainte Marie who were visited by the Jesuits, Blessed Isaac Jogues, and Father Charles Raymbaut, 1642, the rapids then receiving their name.

In 1668 Father Jacques Marquette and Father Claude Dablon renewed the mission at the Sault, and three years later Father Marquette set up a rude bark chapet at Michilimackinac and founded the Mission of Saint Ignatius (Saint Ignace) which also ministered to the French of the post which was soon established. A third mission was established, 1679, at the mouth of the Saint Joseph River by Recollects accompanying La Salle, Father Louis Hennepin, Father Gabriel de la Ribourde, and Father Zenobius Membre.

Faith: Appropriating - I once heard a Father tell, that when he removed his family to a new residence, where the accommodation was much more ample, and the substance much more rich and varied than that to which they had previously been accustomed, his youngest son, yet a lisping infant, ran round every room, and scanned every article with ecstasy, calling out, in childish wonder at every new sight, 'Is this ours, Father? and is this ours?' The child did not say 'yours,' and I observed that the Father while he told the story was not offended with the freedom. You could read in his glistening eye that the infant's confidence in appropriating as his own all that his Father had, was an important element in his satisfaction. ...
Such, I suppose, will be the surprise, and joy, and appropriating confidence, with which the child of our Father's family will count all his own, when he is removed from the comparatively mean condition of things present, and enters the infinite of things to come. ' He bounds forward to touch and taste every provision which those blessed mansions contain, exclaiming, as he looks in the Father's face, 'Father, this and this is ours. ' The dear child is glad of all the Father's riches, and the Father is gladder of his dear child
Abba - The Chaldaic-Hebrew form, as ab is the Hebrew form, for the Greek pater , "father. ...
The use of the Hebrew and of the Greek appellation addressed to the one Father beautifully suggests that the Spirit of adoption from Jesus, who first used the double invocation, inspires in both Jew and Gentile alike the experimental knowledge of God as our Father, because He is Father of Jesus with whom faith makes us one, and as our God because He is Jesus' God. Compare John 20:17, "ascend unto My Father and (therefore) your Father

Father - Joseph was a Father to Pharoah, Genesis 45:8 , as his counselor and provider. But as we have forfeited the rights of children by our sins, it is only through Christ that we can call God by that endearing name, "our Father," John 20:17 Romans 8:15-17 . ...

Generation - As it relates to the common act of man in the circumstances of descent from Father to son, I should not have though it needful to have detained the reader with a single observation; but in relation to the Son of God, as God, it becomes of infinite importance as an article of faith, that we should have the clearest apprehension which the subject will admit. ...
The Scriptures in many places have said so much in defining the person of the Father and of the Son, as distinctions in the GODHEAD, that there can be nothing rendered more certain and as an article of faith to the believer, and none is more important. But while this is held forth to us in this view as a point most fully to be believed, God the Holy Ghost hath in no one passage, as far as I can recollect, pointed out to the church the mode of existence, or explained how the Son of God is the Son, and the Father is the Father, in the eternity of their essence and nature. ...
But while this doctrine of the eternity of the Son of God in common with the Father, is held faith to us in the Scripture as a most certain truth, though unexplained, because our faculties are not competent to the explanation of it, the Holy Ghost hath been very explicit in teaching the church how to understand the phrases in his sacred word, where the Son of God, when standing up as the Mediator and Head of his church before all worlds, is called the "first begotten Son, and the only begotten of the Father," full of grace and truth. (Isaiah 42:1) and his Father is greater than he. (John 14:28) And God is the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Our almighty Saviour, in a single verse, hath shewn it, when he saith, (Matthew 11:27) "No man knoweth the Son but the Father;" that is, knoweth him as Son of God, knoweth him in his Sonship as God, one with the Father, and impossible to be so known but by God himself. And it is in this sense also, that it is said, "No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which lay in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him;" (John 1:18) that is, no man hath seen God, as God, in his threefold character of person, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. But when he who lay in the bosom of the Father came forth in our nature, and revealed him as the Father and himself as the Son, equal in the eternity of their nature as God; then the glorious truth was explained. Then was it understood, that the Father, as Father, and the Son, as Son, were from all eternity the same; their existence the same, their nature the same; the Father not being Father but in the same instant as the Son the Son; for the very name of the one in the relationship implies the other, and the eternity of the one including the eternity of the other also

Trinity - As a fact the Scripture reveals the doctrine of the Trinity in two ways: first in passages in which the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are mentioned together as God; and secondly, in passages which speak of each as divine. These passages, carefully read, are sufficient to prove that "the Godhead of the Father, of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost is one, the glory equal, the majesty co-eternal; such as the Father is, such is the Son, and such is the Holy Ghost; the Father is God, the Son is God, and the Holy Ghost is God; and yet they are not three Gods, but one God

Fatherhood of God - Throughout the Bible we find God portrayed as a Father. There God is specifically called the Father of the nation of Israel (Deuteronomy 32:6 ; Isaiah 63:16 ; [1] 64:8; Jeremiah 3:4,19 ; 31:9 ; Malachi 1:6 ; 2:10 ) or the Father of certain individuals (2 Samuel 7:14 ; 1 Chronicles 17:13 ; 22:10 ; 28:6 ; Psalm 68:5 ; 89:26 ) only fifteen times. (At times the Father imagery is present although the term "Father" is not used [2]). ...
The teaching of the Fatherhood of God takes a decided turn with Jesus, for "Father" was his favorite term for addressing God. Abba was a term little children used when they addressed their Fathers. At one time it was thought that since children used this term to address their Fathers the nearest equivalent would be the English term "Daddy. " More recently, however, it has been pointed out that Abba was a term not only that small children used to address their Fathers; it was also a term that older children and adults used. As a result it is best to understand Abba as the equivalent of "Father" rather than "Daddy. "...
A third unique feature of Jesus' teaching concerning the Fatherhood of God is that the frequency of this metaphor is out of all proportion to what we find elsewhere in the Old Testament and other Jewish literature. They were to pray, "Father, hallowed by your name" ( Luke 11:2 ). It should be pointed out that although Jesus addressed God as "Father" and taught his disciples to do the same, he never referred to God as "our Father. It is also seen in Matthew 5:16,45 , 48 ; 6:1,4 , 6 ; 7:21 ; 10:32-33 , where Jesus refers to "your" (singular and plural ) and "my" Father but never "our" Father. ...
Because of Jesus' use of this metaphor, it is not surprising that the rest of the New Testament also emphasizes the Fatherhood of God. In the Pauline letters God is described as "Father" over forty times. For Paul this Fatherhood is based not so much on God's role in creation but rather on the redemption and reconciliation he has made available in Jesus Christ. This is why Paul refers to "the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ" (Romans 15:6 ; 2 Corinthians 1:3 ; 11:31 ). It is through the work of Christ that God invites us to call him "Abba, Father. ...
The description of God as "father" is under attack today in certain circles. When God is referred as a Father, this is simply the use of a metaphor in which he is likened to a kind and loving Father. Yet to avoid the metaphor of Father as a description and designation for God is to lose sight of the fact that Jesus chose this as his metaphor to address God and that he taught this as the metaphor by which his disciples should address God. It also loses sight of the continuity established by the use of this metaphor with those who have called God "Father" over the centuries. These include the disciples; the earliest congregations ( Romans 8:15 ; Galatians 4:6 ); the earliest church councils ("I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth "); and Christian churches all over the globe who over the centuries have prayed together "Our Father who art in heaven, Hallowed by thy name.

Missouri - The settlement of Saint Louis by Laclede in 1764 was antedated by those of Old Mines and Saint Genevieve by French miners and traders, c1735 By 1750 they were visited by Jesuit missionaries, and one of the oldest documents of the State is the register of the first little wooden church of Saint Genevieve which opens with the record of a baptism, February 24, 1760, by Father Philibert Watrin, S.

Eternally the Son...
God is a trinity of Father, Son and Holy Spirit, all of whom are equally and eternally God (see TRINITY). Although Jesus is the Son, that does not mean that he was created by the Father or is inferior to the Father. On the contrary, he has the same godhead and character as the Father (Matthew 11:27; John 1:1; John 1:14; John 1:18; John 5:26; John 8:18-19; John 10:30; John 10:38; Galatians 4:4-5; Hebrews 1:1-3; John 5:20-291; see WORD), has the powers, authority and responsibilities of the Father (John 3:35-36; John 5:21-22; John 5:43; John 13:3), and has the thought and purpose of the Father (John 5:17-20; John 5:30; John 8:16; John 8:28-29; John 14:10; John 14:24; see Father). ...
The relation between Jesus (the Son of God) and his Father is unique. It should not be confused with the relation between believers (sons of God) and their heavenly Father. The Father and the Son have always existed in a relation in which they are equally and unchangeably God. ...
Jesus was careful, when talking to believers, to make a distinction between ‘my Father’ and ‘your Father’ (Matthew 5:16; Luke 2:49; Luke 12:30; John 20:17). Through Christ they come into a close personal relation with God the Father, and can even address him as ‘Abba’ as Jesus did (Mark 14:36; Romans 8:15; Galatians 4:6; see ABBA). ...
The Son’s mission...
As the Son of God, Jesus shares in the deity and majesty of the Father; yet he is also humbly obedient to the Father. Although he existed with the Father from eternity, the Son willingly took human form to fulfil his Father’s purposes for the salvation of human beings and the conquest of evil (Romans 8:3; John 14:9; Hebrews 2:14-15). ...
The earliest recorded words of Jesus indicate that even as a child he was conscious of his special relation with the Father (Luke 2:49). The Father reaffirmed this special relation at some of the great moments of Jesus’ public ministry (Matthew 3:17; Matthew 17:5; see BAPTISM; TRANSFIGURATION). Because the Son and the Father existed in this special relation, Satan tempted the Son to act independently of the Father. Believers usually spoke of it in relation to Jesus’ divine person and his unity with the Father (Matthew 16:16; John 20:31; Colossians 1:13; 1 John 2:23; 1 John 4:15). Jesus also spoke of it in this way, but in addition he emphasized the meaning of his sonship in relation to his earthly ministry and complete submission to his Father (Mark 13:32; John 4:34; John 5:19; John 7:16; John 8:28; John 8:42; cf. ...
The Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world, and the Son’s obedience to this mission meant that he had to suffer and die (John 3:14-16; John 12:27; Romans 5:10; Romans 8:32; 1 John 4:9-10; 1 John 4:14). ...
However, the mission that the Father entrusted to the Son involved more than saving those who believe. The Son will restore all things to the Father, and God’s triumph will be complete

He was accompanied by Father Alonzo Martinez and nine Franciscan companions and in 1598 the first mission was established and a church built at San Juan de los Caballeros, about 30 miles north of Santa Fe.

Oregon - The two missionaries sent out by Bishop Signay of Quebec to the Oregon country in 1838, Reverend Francois Norbert Blanchet and Reverend Modeste Demers, settled by request of the Hudson Bay Company in the Cowlitz valley within the present state of Washington, and it was not until the close of the year that Father Blanchet began his ministry in Oregon proper. Father Blanchet then took up his residence there. After three years of apostolic labor among Indians and settlers, he received into the Church in 1842, Dr John Mcltoughlin, the chief factor of the Hudson Bay Company at Fort Vancouver, a pioneer whose influence and ability earned him the title of the "Father of Oregon," and who for his loyalty to the Church was made a Knight of Saint Gregory in 1846. Meanwhile in 1843Father Demers had come from Cowlitz to Oregon City, founded by Dr McLoughlin about 1842, and by 1846 the church of Saint John was built there. In 1840 the indefatigable apostle of the Northwest, Father Pierre de Smet, S. , had reached Vancouver for a conference with Father Blanchet.

Father Blanchet, made Vicar Apostolic of Oregon, 1843, and consecrated 1845, was named Archbishop of the See of Oregon City, 1846

Salmon - The Father of Boaz ( Ruth 4:20-21 ), and therefore in the direct line of the ancestry of our Lord ( Matthew 1:4 ; Matthew 1:6 , Luke 3:32 ). If the Salma of 1 Chronicles 2:51 ; 1 Chronicles 2:54 is the same person, he was the ‘father’ or founder of Bethlehem, but it is to be noticed that that Salma is reckoned as one of the sons of Caleb the son of Hur
Elioenai - In the seventh generation from Zerubbabel, contemporary with Alexander the Great, but the Hebrew (1 Chronicles 3:23-24) is probably an error, and Shemaiah, grandfather of Elioenai and Father of Neariah, Elioenai's Father, is probably Shimei, Zerubbabel's brother

Abba - (ab' buh) is the Aramaic word for “father” used by Jesus to speak of His own intimate relationship with God, a relationship that others can enter through faith. Ab usually refers to a human Father. On occasion the Old Testament speaks of God in the role of Father to Israel ( Exodus 4:22 ; Deuteronomy 32:6 ; Isaiah 45:9-11 ; Malachi 2:10 ) or to Israel's king (2 Samuel 7:14 ; Psalm 2:7 ; Psalm 89:26-27 ). God relates to believers as a Father relates to his child. Even when “Father” in the New Testament translates the more formal Greek word pater, the idea of abba is certainly in the background
Zerubbabel - Matthew 1:12 , and 1 Chronicles 3:17 ; 1 Chronicles 3:19 , make Jeconiah king of Judah to be Father to Salathiel; but they do not agree as to the Father of Zerubbabel. The Chronicles say Pedaiah was Father of Zerubbabel; but St. Luke, Ezra, and Haggai, constantly make Salathiel his Father. We must therefore take the name of son in the sense of grandson, and say that Salathiel having educated Zerubbabel, he was always afterward looked upon as his Father
Athanasians - The Athanasian Creed, though generally admitted not to be drawn up by this Father, (but probably, as Doctor Waterland says, by Hilary, bishop of Aries, in the fifth century,) is universally allowed to contain a fair expression of his sentiments. For there is one person of the Father, another of the Son, and another of the Holy Ghost. But the Godhead of the Father, of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, is all one; the glory equal, the majesty co-eternal. Such as the Father is, such is the Son, and such is the Holy Ghost;" namely, "uncreate, incomprehensible, eternal," &c. The Sabellians considered the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit as one in person;—this was "confounding the persons:" the Arians considered them as differing in essence—three beings;—this was "dividing the substance:" and against these two hypotheses was the creed originally framed

Abba - It approximates to a personal name, in contrast to "Father," with which it is always joined in the NT. This is probably due to the fact that, abba having practically become a proper name, Greek-speaking Jews added the Greek word pater, "father," from the language they used. Abba is the word framed by the lips of infants, and betokens unreasoning trust; "father" expresses an intelligent apprehension of the relationship

Children of God - —The teaching of Jesus Christ about the children of God cannot be understood apart from His teaching about the Fatherhood of God: indeed, it is from the latter standpoint that it must be approached. In such an approach the main positions seem to be as follows:—...
(1) Jesus asserts absolutely the Fatherly nature of God. His use of the name ‘Father’ implies that the Fatherly nature is eternal in God. God does not become Father; He is ‘the Father. ’ All knowledge of God is deficient which does not ‘know the Father’ (Matthew 11:27, John 14:6-11). This Fatherly nature of God necessarily manifests itself in all God’s dealings. He cannot be other than Father, and ‘he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sendeth rain on the just and the unjust’ (Matthew 5:45). ...
(2) This eternal Fatherhood in God is complemented by an eternal Sonship in God. Jesus used habitually the name ‘My Father. ’ It implied a special relationship between the Father and Himself, which is summed up by John, ‘The only begotten Son which is in the bosom of the Father’ (John 1:18). ...
(3) The Fatherly heart of God does not rest satisfied in the eternal Sonship in God. The Divine Fatherhood is woven into its texture. Therefore the picture of God the Father is offered to everybody, with its necessary appeal to the hearer to enjoy the filial relationship. He told the Jews that they were of their Father the devil (John 8:44), and distinguished ‘the good seed, the sons of the kingdom,’ from ‘the tares, the sons of the evil one’ (Matthew 13:38); cf. The children of God are ‘peacemakers,’ are those who love their enemies, and who do the will of the Father (cf. The Fatherhood of God is an ethical attitude eternally present in the Godhead; man’s Divine sonship is his ethical response to this Divine Fatherhood. But their assumption of this filial position depends upon their adoption of the filial attitude, ‘I will arise and go to my Father. ’ As Wendt says, ‘God does not become the Father, but is the heavenly Father, even of those who become His sons. ...
This religious attitude which betokens Divine sonship, includes four elements, (a) Children of God love their heavenly Father. When claiming to have come forth from God, He said to the Jews: ‘If God were your Father ye would love me,’ where love of Himself is identified with love of the Father whom He revealed. ...
(b) Children of God obey their heavenly Father. It is clearly stated in these sentences: ‘Whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother’ (Matthew 12:50); ‘Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven’ (Matthew 7:21); cf. ...
(c) Children of God trust their heavenly Father. Jesus exhorts His disciples not to be as the Gentiles, but to rely upon their heavenly Father’s knowledge of their needs and His desire to help them. Anxiety must be banished from the hearts of God’s children, who are fed and clothed by their Father (Matthew 6:25-34, Luke 6:22-34). ...
(d) Children of God try to be like their heavenly Father. They are to be perfect, even as their heavenly Father is perfect (Matthew 5:48). This must not be interpreted, as it often is, ‘Be as perfect as your Father. ’ Its exhortation is to take the Fatherly character of God as the standard of perfection. ’ The Father loves all men: let His children do likewise. By thus taking the Fatherly character of God as the standard, His children will fulfil the second great law, ‘Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself’ (Matthew 22:39). The natural man adopts other ideals of perfection; but the children of God try to be like their Father. ’ That prayer is put into the lips of those who can say ‘Our Father which art in heaven. The hallowing of the Father’s name implies the sanctification of His children after His likeness. The Kingdom is God’s proffered blessing: ‘It is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom’ (Luke 12:32). The Kingdom includes the blessings of forgiveness (Matthew 6:14 ||); of guardian care (Matthew 6:33); of the Holy Spirit (Luke 11:13); of eternal life (John 5:21-26; John 17:3); and finally, the enjoyment of the Father’s house (Matthew 25:34, John 14:2-3). Considerable importance attaches to the solemn words in Matthew 11:27 ‘All things have been delivered unto me of my Father: and no one knoweth the Son, save the Father; neither doth any know the Father, save the Son and he to whomsoever the Son willeth to reveal him. ’ They declare that the knowledge of the Father must be experimental. Only one who has lived as a son can know the Father. Men do not know God primarily as Father. They think of Him as King, as Judge, as Law-Giver; and because they are sinners they cannot know Him purely as Father. But ‘the Son’ knows God as Father. Therefore He can know God as the Father; and He is able to reveal God to men as Father. Jesus does this by ransoming captive spirits from the bondage of sin and death (Matthew 20:28), by persuading them to trust the Fatherly love of God, and by strengthening them to break away from the self-life in favour of the life of surrender (Matthew 16:24-27 ||). The Son is willing to reveal the Father to all. Jesus does not say ‘Go to the Father’; He says ‘Come unto me, and I will give you rest. ’ This is because He is the revealer of the Father; and the rest He offers is rest in the Fatherhood of God. He found rest to His own soul in the Father: ‘I thank thee, O Father … Even so, Father’ (Matthew 11:25-26). The only way in which men can come to the Father is by coming to Himself. One is that the Fatherhood of God is made accessible to men in Jesus Christ. He is the appointed trysting-place where men are sure to meet their heavenly Father. Jesus is the trysting-place where they are gathered at the feet of their heavenly Father (John 11:52). If men come to Him, the see the Father. The other fact is that Jesus gives men knowledge of the Father by teaching them to live as God’s children must live. They must also learn obedience to the Fathers will. ’ He is wearing the yoke of obedience to the Father, and He finds it ‘easy. ...
In particular, it may be noted that Jesus claimed kinship with the Father because ‘I do always the things that are pleasing to him’ (John 8:29). This is in harmony with His reference to men who do the Father’s will, as His ‘brethren’ (Matthew 12:50). Jesus Christ is the mighty deliverer who can lift men out of death in sin and bring them to the Father. (β) As High Priest, Jesus secures access to the Father for all who come unto God by Him (Ephesians 2:18, Hebrews 7:24-25)

Father, Fatherhood - FATHER, FatherHOOD. —The one subject on which Jesus claimed to have unique and absolute knowledge was the Father (Matthew 11:27). Mark 13:32, Matthew 9:21-22); and the very fact that He looked up to God as His God is sufficient evidence that, by knowledge of the Father, He did not mean comprehension of the Infinite. ...
In setting forth Jesus’ conception of the Fatherhood of God, we shall consider (1) the use of the name ‘Father’; (2) the meaning of Fatherhood; (3) the Fatherhood of God in the Fourth Gospel; (4) the place of Fatherhood in the teaching of Jesus; and (5) Jesus’ conception of God compared with that of the OT and of His contemporaries. Use of the name ‘Father’ by Jesus. —The first recorded sentence of Jesus (Luke 2:49), and that which was probably the last (Luke 23:46), both contain the name ‘Father. ’ The boy of twelve felt an inward constraint to be engaged in the things of His Father, and twenty years later, expiring on the cross, it was into the hands of His Father that He commended His spirit. ‘The child is Father of the man. ’ Whenever the personal relation between Him and God is involved, Jesus employs no name but ‘Father,’ if we except a single passage where He quotes from the 22nd Psalm (Mark 15:34). He addresses God as ‘Father’ (Matthew 11:25-27; Matthew 26:39; Matthew 26:42, Luke 23:34; Luke 23:46); and in the longest of these, which includes only three verses, the name is repeated five times (Matthew 11:25-27). When speaking of God in the third person, Jesus refers to Him once as ‘the Great King’ (Matthew 5:35), and once as ‘Lord of the harvest’ (Matthew 9:38); but in almost every case He uses the name ‘God’ or the name ‘Father. The Meaning of Fatherhood. —What Jesus meant by the term ‘Father’ is to be learned both from His words and from His life. Thus He teaches that, as it is the very nature of a Father to give good gifts to his children, so it is the very nature of God to give His good things to those who ask Him (Matthew 7:11, Luke 11:13). Earthly Fathers, though evil, give to their children; much more will God give, who is absolutely and unchangeably good (Mark 10:18). Jesus exhorts His hearers to have this spirit in order that they may become sons of the heavenly Father and share His perfection (Matthew 5:45; Matthew 5:48). Accordingly the term ‘Fatherhood’ describes what God is in Himself. ...
The story of the Lost Son perfectly interprets Jesus’ conception of Fatherhood (Luke 15:11-32). Therefore, when Jesus, in the story of the Lost Son, says that the Father watched and longed for his son’s return, and welcomed him at last with kisses and a joyful feast. He teaches that the Fatherhood of God is essential, and therefore a fact of universal significance. It is in keeping with this when Jesus, addressing the multitudes as well as His disciples, said to all who heard Him, ‘Call no man your Father on earth: for one is your Father, who is in heaven’ (Matthew 23:1; Matthew 23:9). ...
Again, the very life of Jesus shows what He meant by the Fatherhood of God, for He surely felt that the spirit of this Fatherhood was manifested through Him. He portrayed His own attitude towards the lost when He drew the picture of the Father and his lost son. His brotherhood interpreted the spirit of the Divine Fatherhood. It is impossible, therefore, to suppose that, in His thought, the Fatherhood of God was something less than essential, a figure setting forth His gracious relationship to certain favoured people. As His own love flowed out to men irrespective of all merely outward circumstances, and as He believed that He knew the Father and was in harmony with His will. He must have believed that God loves men irrespective of all outward circumstances; in other words, that His Fatherhood is essential, and hence of universal significance. ...
We conclude, therefore, both from the words and the life of Jesus, that He called God our Father, not because God created us,—a view common in Philo,—or because He rules over us, or because of the covenant which He made with Abraham, but simply and only because He loves us. The abstract statement that ‘God is love’ (1 John 4:8) is a true interpretation of the word ‘Father’ as used by Jesus. The Fatherhood of God in the Fourth Gospel. —The Fatherhood of God is more conspicuous in John than in the Synoptics, the word ‘Father’ occurring about 90 times as against 5 in Mark, 17 in Luke, and 45 in Matthew. ...
The new feature of the subject in the Fourth Gospel is the emphasis laid on the universality of Fatherhood. In offering life to a Samaritan, Jesus feels that He is accomplishing the Father’s will (John 4:10; John 4:34), and a visit of certain Greeks brought before His soul the vision of a great harvest for the Kingdom of God (John 12:20-24). ...
Still more noticeable, and more divergent from the earlier usage, is the employment of ‘Father’ in an absolute sense. In the conversation with the Samaritan woman, Fatherhood is plainly universal: ‘The hour cometh and now is when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and truth: for such doth the Father seek to be his worshippers’; ‘Believe me, the hour cometh when neither in this mountain nor in Jerusalem shall ye worship the Father’ (John 4:21; John 4:23). Another passage which admits of no doubt is John 20:17 ‘I am not yet ascended to the Father. But go to my brethren and say to them, I ascend to my Father and your Father, and my God and your God. ’ It is quite clear that the word ‘Father’ in the first clause is unlimited; for, in the later clauses, He who is here called ‘the Father’ is called by Jesus ‘my Father and your Father. ...
In about one quarter of the passages where God is called ‘Father,’ He is so called in reference to Jesus, and the language is ‘my Father’ (e. Since, now, there are some passages in which the absolute sense of ‘Father’ is required, and since in the majority of the other passages, where the expression ‘the Father’ is used, there is nothing which requires us to adopt a limited idea of Fatherhood, it must be regarded as probable that the author always employed the word in an unlimited sense when he did not associate a personal pronoun with it. Thus the Fourth Gospel would place a very striking emphasis on the thought that the Fatherhood of God is essential and universal. ...
The meaning of Fatherhood in the Fourth Gospel is the same as in the primitive tradition. It is perhaps probable that the author of the Fourth Gospel occasionally used the term ‘Father’ in a metaphysical sense (John 1:14; John 1:18), but he has put no words on the lips of Jesus which require to be taken metaphysically. He often represents Jesus as saying ‘my Father,’ but it is unquestionable that Jesus would have every man address God in just this way. He taught His disciples to say ‘our Father,’ which, of course, implies that each individual may say ‘my Father. ’ When Jesus, to comfort His disciples, is represented as sending them the message, ‘I ascend unto my Father and your Father, and my God and your God’ (John 20:17), He does not separate Himself from them by claiming a unique relationship to the Father, even God, but rather joins Himself closely with them by the thought that one and the same Father is theirs and His alike, one God the God of both. The Fatherhood of God according to Jesus, even in the Fourth Gospel, is one and ethical, but His appreciation and appropriation of that Fatherhood are unique. The Place of Fatherhood in the teaching of Jesus. —In accordance with the fact that the sole subject on which Jesus claimed to possess unique knowledge was the character of God, or, as we may now say, the Fatherhood of God, we find that this truth is central and determinative in all His teaching. The Kingdom which He wished to see come on earth was the Kingdom of the Father (Matthew 6:9), a Kingdom in which the will of the Father should be done. His work was, indeed, to fulfil the Law, and to establish the Kingdom of God on earth; but the inspiring and ruling thought in all His work was the truth of God’s Fatherhood. The lost son is to return to the Father. His life is to be one of filial service in the Father’s presence. And it is the goodness of the Father that draws him back. ...
The Fatherhood of God requires that the spirit of the religious life shall be love, out of which will be born perfect trust. It is one and the same quality that makes Him the Father and makes man His son. Thus the entire teaching of Jesus is but the interpretation of the fact of God’s Fatherhood. In these passages, and in a few more, God is thought of as a Father to the people of Israel as a whole; and He is the Father of Israel because He made them a nation and established them by His mighty power (Deuteronomy 32:6). So far His Fatherhood is wholly national. There are, however, other passages in which we have an individualizing of the thought of Fatherhood. Thus the Lord says of the theocratic descendant of David, ‘I will be his Father, and he shall be my son’ (2 Samuel 7:14); and the Messianic king puts the decree of Jehovah concerning himself in these words, ‘Thou art my son; this day have I begotten thee’ (Psalms 2:7). There is also an individualizing of God’s Fatherhood with reference to other persons, for the Psalter calls Him the Father of the Fatherless; and His pity for those who fear Him is like the pity of a Father for his children (Psalms 68:5; Psalms 103:13). ‘Father’ is a word of relation, not yet a description of God’s very character. It marks an advance upon that conception of Fatherhood which is derived from the fact of creation, but it is still far removed from the view of Jesus. The OT gave to Jesus the name ‘Father’ for God, but He filled it with a new content. ...
To this conception of God the revelation of His Fatherhood by Jesus formed an absolute contrast. To the scribal mind God was the God of scribes; to Jesus He was the Father of all men. ...

The young man being sorely troubled in his conscience, said to those about him, 'I am dying, take me from my bed, and let me lie in sackcloth and ashes, in token of my sorrow for my ingratitude to my Father. ' The thought of his boy's broken heart touched the heart of the Father. If ye, being evil, are overcome by your children's tears, how much more shall your Father who is in heaven find in your bemoanings and confessions an argument for the display of his pardoning love through Christ Jesus our Lord?

"Keep, Holy Father, (saith Jesus) through thine own name, those whom thou hast given me. And the Holy Ghost, by Moses the man of God, when giving directions to Aaron to bless the people, appointed this form in reference to the Father. (See Numbers 6:24 see also Isaiah 27:3) And certainly there is a blessedness in the thought, that the church in Jesus is the continued object of the Father's love and care

JEHOVAH, or Lord, is equally adapted and made use of in common to teach us all the persons of the GODHEAD, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. We find, it, every part of the word of God, JEHOVAH the Father, so called, (see Zechariah 2:10) where JEHOVAH the Father is represented as sending JEHOVAH the Son. So again we find JEHOVAH the Father speaking to JEHOVAH the Son, (Psalms 110:1; Isaiah 42:5-8) and numberless other instances occur throughout the Bible. In like manner, God the Son is called by this glorious name, (Jeremiah 23:6) with express designation of character, and this also by JEHOVAH the Father, And throughout both Testaments of Scripture, God the Son possesseth in common with the Father and the Holy Ghost, the distinguishing name of Lord

Children (Sons) of God - ...
With these exceptions, the term, with the correlative one of ‘Father,’ designates the relation of men to God and of God to men, with varying fulness of meaning. To call God ‘Father’ may imply little more than that He is creator and ruler of men (cf. ‘Zeus, Father of gods and men’); or it may connote some phase of His providence towards a favoured individual or nation; or, again, it may assert that a Father’s love at its highest is the truest symbol we can frame of God’s essential nature and God’s disposition towards all men. Similarly, men may conceivably be styled ‘children of God’ from mere dependence, from special privilege, from moral likeness, or finally from a full and willing response to the Divine Fatherhood in filial love, trust, and obedience. It is, therefore, not surprising that the Scripture facts present a varying and progressive conception of God as Father and of men as His children. That favoured nation as a whole is His ‘son,’ He their ‘Father’: it is because this tie is violated by Israel’s ingratitude and apostasy that the prophets rebuke and appeal, while here, too, lies the hope of final restoration. God is the ‘Father’ of Israel, whom He begat by delivering them from Egypt, nourished in the wilderness and established ( Deuteronomy 32:6 ; Deuteronomy 32:10-15 ; Deuteronomy 32:18 ); the people are His ‘sons and daughters,’ His ‘children’ ( Deuteronomy 32:19-20 ). The Divine Fatherhood towards Israel is manifested in protecting and redeeming love: it involves the Divine faithfulness, to which His people may make appeal in their extremity (Jeremiah 31:9 ; Jeremiah 31:18-20 , Isaiah 43:6 ; Isaiah 63:16 ; Isaiah 64:8-12 ). The fact of Israel’s sonship carries with it the obligation of filial response: ‘a son honoureth his Father … if then I be a Father, where is mine honour?’ ( Malachi 1:6 ). But such response is, of necessity, not only national, but also, and first, individual; and the way is opened for a conception of God as Father of every man (cf. For if the religion of Israel had really attained to any clear conception of God as Father and of men as His children, it would most naturally find utterance in these compositions, in which we have at once the devoutest expression of the personal religious consciousness and the chosen vehicle of the worship of the congregation. True, the Divine care for man and the Divine help are set forth under a wealth of imagery: God is shield, rock, fortress, refuge, shepherd, light, salvation, but not Father. He is ‘a Father of the Fatherless’ ( Psalms 68:5 ); ‘Like as a Father pitieth his children, so the Lord pitieth them that fear him’ ( Psalms 103:13 , cf. ...
It cannot, then, be said that in the OT we have a doctrine of men as ‘children of God,’ springing from, and developed under, a conception of God as essentially Father. ...
Bousset affirms that ‘the belief comes to light, more and more frequently the nearer we approach to Jesus’ own time, that God is the Father of each individual believer’ ( Jesus , p. But against this may be set the judgment of Wendt: ‘In the later Judaism, down to the time of Jesus, there was by no means a development of the conception of God … inclining to a more prevalent use of the name of Father. Est 16:16), and nowhere does our Lord’s teaching appear in sharper contrast to current religious ideas than in relation to the Divine Fatherhood ( e. The outstanding fact is that in the self-revelation of Jesus Christ, as well as in His teaching, the characteristic name for God is ‘Father. ’ He enters into full inheritance of the OT conception of the Divine power and transcendence, proclaims a Kingdom of God, and develops its meaning for His disciples; but the King is also Father, and the stress of Christ’s teaching on this side is not on the Kingship but on the Fatherhood of God. In what unique sense He knew God as ‘His own Father,’ Himself as ‘Son of God,’ we do not here inquire (see Jesus Christ), noting only how simply, in the deepest experiences of joy or trouble, His faith uttered itself in the name ‘Father’ ( Matthew 11:25 ; Matthew 26:39 , Luke 23:46 ). But there was that in His religious consciousness which He could freely share with His disciples as ‘children of God’: the faint and halting analogy of the OT became through Him a clear and steadfast revelation of the Divine Fatherhood, and of sonship, in its fullest sense, as the possible and indeed normal relation of human to Divine. The essential and universal Fatherhood of God appears in such sayings as that of Matthew 5:43-48 , and, supremely, in the parable of the Prodigal Son. Even when, as generally, it is in discourse to the disciples that the term ‘your Father’ is used, it still connotes what is in God, awaiting in man that obedient recognition which is sonship. It is the appeal of Christ to His disciples against hypocrisy, unforgivingness, lack of faith ( Matthew 6:1 ; Matthew 6:15 ; Matthew 6:26 ); it stands as symbol of the Divine providence, forgiveness, redemption in a word, of the Divine love ( Luke 6:36 ; Luke 11:13 , Mark 11:25 ), and hence it gives the ground and manner of all access to God, ‘Whensoever ye pray, say, Father’ ( Luke 11:2 ). ...
If with Jesus the Fatherhood of God lies in His disposition towards men, not in the mere fact that He created them, so the filial relationship is ethical. God is Father, men must become children. Thus, the peacemakers ‘shall be called sons of God’ ( Matthew 5:9 ): love to one’s enemies has for its motive ‘that ye may become sons of your Father which is in heaven’ ( Matthew 5:45 , cf. But since sonship is virtually identical with membership of the Kingdom of God, these direct references must be supplemented by the many sayings in which the conditions of entrance into the Kingdom are laid down: it is the righteous (and what the term means is set forth in the Sermon on the Mount) who ‘shall shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father’ ( Matthew 13:43 ). In the Fourth Gospel (considered here rather than in its chronological sequence, for the sake of comparison with the Synoptics) certain elements in our Lord’s revelation of the Father receive new emphasis. Hence the Synoptic phrase ‘your Father’ all but disappears. What it implies is not absent, but is to be reached through a rich unfolding of, and fellowship with, the personal religious consciousness of Jesus Himself, under the terms ‘my Father’ and, especially, ‘the Father. ’ Only once does He speak to the disciples of ‘your Father,’ when, after His resurrection, He links them with Himself as’ brethren’ in the message, ‘I ascend unto my Father and your Father, and my God and your God’ ( John 20:17 ; cf. ...
( b ) The sonship of the disciples is to be attained through Jesus Christ : ‘No one cometh unto the Father but through me’ ( John 14:6 ). What is exceptional in the Synoptics ( Matthew 11:25 , Luke 10:22 ) becomes the normal teaching of the Fourth Gospel: to see, know, believe, love, confess the Son, is the one way of access to the Father ( John 14:1-31 ; John 15:1-27 ; John 16:1-33 ; John 17:1-26 , 1 John 2:23 ). Moreover, the impulse of attraction to Christ is itself from the Father ( Ephesians 1:5-14 ; John 6:65 ), and the Divine initiative, as well as the completeness of the break required with ‘the world’ and ‘the flesh’ ( 1 John 2:16 , John 3:6 ), is described as being ‘born anew,’ ‘born of the Spirit,’ ‘born of God’ ( John 3:3-8 ; John 1:13 , 1 John 3:9 ). Paul makes moral appeal on the ground that in exchange for the ‘spirit of bondage’ they had received the ‘spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father’ ( Romans 8:15 ). ’ The Law as ‘tutor’ has led them to Christ, in whom they are now ‘sons of God’; Christ has ‘redeemed’ them from the bondage of Law that they might ‘receive the adoption of sons,’ and, because they are sons, ‘God sent forth the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, Abba, Father

Branch - In this particular Scripture CHRIST is the branch springing from the Father to reveal in His life, His actions and His words the beauty and the glory of the Father. He is like the Father in this respect. So CHRIST in every respect is exactly like His Father. (See Jeremiah 33:15) In this place also CHRIST is represented as being exactly like His Father in His righteous character. He is absolutely holy and pure, as is GOD the Father. This branch has all the characteristics of the tree (the Father) in being perfectly sinless, perfectly righteous in every thought, word and deed. The type in this passage represents CHRIST as being the servant of GOD who will do everything that the Father wants done, and in the way the Father wishes to have it done. By His words and His work He reveals exactly the character and conduct of the Father. The branch is of course, as in the previous references, exactly the same in essence, in substance, in character, and in appearance as His Father. ...

Father - " God's Fatherhood is the ground and pattern for human Fatherhood. Abraham was "father of nations," both by natural descent from him and by spiritual fellowship in his faith (Genesis 18:18-19; Romans 4:17). The godly Father's blessing brought great good, his curse great evil (Genesis 9:25-27); the undutifulness of Ham entailing a curse on his race, the dutifulness of Shem and Japhet a blessing on their races (Genesis 27:27-40; Genesis 48:15-20; Genesis 48:49). The fifth commandment, "honor thy Father and mother," is the first with special promise (Ephesians 6:2). Any ancestor is called "father" or "mother" (Isaiah 51:2; Jeremiah 35:16-18, the sons of Jonadab son of Rechab, a striking instance of the blessing on obedience to parents; Daniel 5:2; 2 Chronicles 15:16 margin). "Father" is used also for protector, patron (Job 29:16; Psalms 68:5; Deuteronomy 32:6). "Fathers" mean elders (Acts 7:2; Acts 22:1). ...
"Father" expresses one worshipped or reverenced (Jeremiah 2:27; 2 Kings 2:12; 2 Kings 5:13; 2 Kings 6:21). The inventor of any art is called "father" of it or of its practicers (Genesis 4:20-21; John 8:44; Job 38:28; Job 17:14). 1 Corinthians 4:15; "though ye have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet have ye not many Fathers; for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel. " The Father's great duty was to teach God's laws continually to his children; "speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, when thou liest down, and when thou risest up

The Father of Levi the tax-gatherer ( Mark 2:14 ), afterwards Matthew the Apostle and Evangelist ( Matthew 9:9 ; Matthew 10:3 ). It is perhaps possible that Alphæus the Father of James was identical with Alphæus the Father of Levi, and that the two tax-gatherer Apostles were brothers

Among the latter the leader was the Belgian Father Charles von Quickenborne who had gone west from Maryland to Saint Louis, 1821, and ministered to the Indians of Kansas as early as 1827. Saint Mary's Mission on the Kansas was established 12 years later by Father Pierre de Smet. At about the same time Father Schoenmakers founded a mission for the Osages on the Neosho J River
Abiathar - (uh bi' uh thahr) Personal name meaning, “father of abundance. Only because of his faithful service to Solomon's Father, King David, was he spared the death penalty (1 Kings 2:26-27 ).

Affinity - There are several degrees of affinity, wherein marriage was prohibited by the law of Moses: thus the son could not marry his mother, nor his Father's wife, Leviticus 18:7 , &c. The brother could not marry his sister, whether she were so by the Father only, or only by the mother, and much less if she were his sister both by the same Father and mother. The grandfather could not marry his granddaughter, either by his son or daughter. No one could marry the daughter of his Father's wife; nor the sister of his Father or mother; nor the uncle, his niece; nor the aunt, her nephew; nor the nephew, the wife of his uncle by the Father's side. The Father-in-law could not marry his daughter-in-law; nor the brother the wife of his brother, while living; nor even after the death of his brother, if he left children. ...
It is true the patriarchs, before the law, married their sisters, as Abraham married Sarah, who was his Father's daughter by another mother; and two sisters together, as Jacob married Rachel and Leah; and their own sisters, both by Father and mother, as Seth and Cain. If some other examples may be found, either before or since the law, the Scripture expressly disapproves of them; as Reuben's incest with Balah, his Father's concubine; and the action of Ammon with his sister Tamar; and that of Herod Antipas, who married Herodias, his sister-in-law, his brother Philip's wife, while her husband was yet living; and that which St
Philip the Apostle - "...
Sincere in aim, defective in knowledge; for it was Christ who found him, not he Christ (Isaiah 65:1); and Jesus was Son of God, not of Joseph His reputed Father, husband of Mary. 2:25) identifies him with the disciple who said, "suffer me first to go and (wait until my Father dies, and) bury my Father" (Matthew 8:21); but Jesus said, cf6 "let the dead (in sin) bury their (literal) dead: follow thou Me" (the same words as at his first call), cf6 "go thou and preach the kingdom of God" (1 Kings 19:20; Leviticus 10:3; Leviticus 10:6; Ezekiel 24:16-18). The Lord then spoke of His Father as about to honour any who would serve Jesus, and cried: "cf6 Father, glorify Thy name; a voice came, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again"; "He that seeth Me seeth Him that sent Me" (John 12:28; John 12:45). ...
This saying sank deep into Philip's mind; hence when Jesus said, cf6 "if ye had known Me ye should have known the Father, henceforth ye know and have seen Him," Philip in childlike simplicity asked,"Lord, show us the Father, and it sufficeth us" (1618732013_98). As he had led Nathanael and the Greeks to "see" Jesus, so now Jesus reveals to Philip himself what, long as he had been with Jesus, he had not seen, namely,cf6 "he that hath seen Me hath seen the Father . I am in the Father, and the Father in Me " (Hebrews 1:3; Colossians 1:15, "the image of the invisible God"; John 1:18)
Sabellians - As, from their doctrine, it follows that God the Father suffered, they were hence called by their adversaries, Patripassians; and, as their idea of the trinity was by some called a modal trinity, they have likewise been called Modalists. Sabelius taught that there is but one person in the Godhead; and, in confirmation of this doctrine, he made use of this comparison: As man, though composed of body and soul, is but one person, so God, though he is Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, is but one person. Hence the Sabellians reduced the three persons in the trinity to three characters or relations, and maintained that the Word and Holy Spirit are only virtues, emanations, or functions, of the Deity; that he who is in heaven is the Father of all things; that he descended into the virgin, became a child, and was born of her as a son; and that, having accomplished the mystery of our redemption, he effused himself upon the Apostles in tongues of fire, and was then denominated the Holy Ghost. The word, according to their doctrine, was darted, like a divine ray, to accomplish the work of redemption; and having re-ascended to heaven, the influences of the Father were communicated, after a like manner, to the Apostles. According to some, he taught that the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, were one subsistence, and one person, with three names; and that, in the Old Testament, the Deity delivered the law as the Father; in the New Testament dwelt among men as the Son; and descended on the Apostles as the Holy Spirit. According to Mosheim, his sentiments differed from those of Noetus, in this, that the latter was of opinion, that the person of the Father had assumed the human nature of Christ; whereas Sabellius maintained, that a certain energy only proceeded from the supreme Parent, or a certain portion of the divine nature was united to the Son of God, the man Jesus; and he considered, in the same manner, the Holy Ghost as a portion of the everlasting Father. His sentiments on the trinity appear to have been, that the Godhead, the Deity itself, personally distinguished as the Father, was united to the man Christ Jesus; in consequence of which union or indwelling of the Godhead, he became properly God. Watts conceived this union to have subsisted before the Saviour's appearance in the flesh, and that the human soul of Christ existed with the Father from before the foundation of the world: on which ground he maintains the real descent of Christ from heaven to earth, and the whole scene of his humiliation, which he thought incompatible with the common opinion concerning him

But Scripture afford instances of another kind of adoption-that of a Father having a daughter only, and adopting her children.

However, as well he as his posterity, instead of being reckoned to the family of Judah, as they would have been by their paternal descent from Hezron, is reckoned as sons of Machir, the Father of Gilead. Nay, more, it appears, Numbers 32:41 , that this Jair, who was in fact the son of Segub, the son of Segub, the son of Hezron, the son of Judah, is expressly called "Jair, the son of Manasseh," because his maternal great-grandfather was Machir to the son of Manasseh. Some of the privileges of this state are, deliverance from a fearful and servile spirit; the special love and care of our heavenly Father; conformity to his image; a filial confidence in him; free access to him at all times; the witness of the Holy Spirit, whereby we cry, "Abba, Father;" and the title to our heavenly home, Romans 8:14-17 Ephesians 1:4,5
Beloved - It will be fully sufficient to all the present purposes intended, to remark, that in all the parts of the divine word, at every place, and upon every occasion, when God the Father is represented as speaking of his dear Son, or to him, he expresseth himself with the greatest rapture and delight. And what I would beg the reader particularly to remark with me on this occasion is, that this love of the Father to the Son is specially spoken of in Scripture, not with reference to his divine nature, but in his mediatorial character. It would have been of no profit to us, (for the subject is above our faculties of apprehension) to have been told of the love of the Father to the Son, in the nature and essence of the GODHEAD. " The Lord Jesus speaks of his Father's love to him on this very account. "Therefore, (saith Jesus) doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life that I might take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father. But as considered as one with Christ, and made comely, from the comeliness which Jesus hath imparted to her, and put upon her, she is lovely in God the Father's view, and beloved by JEHOVAH for ever. Yea, the Lord Jesus not only calls her his beloved, and tells her that she is all fair, and that there is no spot in her, but he saith, in that sweet prayer he put up to the Father, in the night before his sufferings and death, that "the Father loveth the church as the Father loved him

This saying of Jesus from the cross strikes a dissonant chord for some Christians, because it seems to indicate that Jesus felt forsaken by the Father. ...
Another view sees this cry as indicating a genuine forsaking of Jesus by the Father, a forsaking which was necessary for our redemption. Perhaps the most serious difficulty of this view is that it raises the question of whether the idea of God the Father turning His back on the obedient Son is consistent with the general biblical teaching of the steadfastness and faithfulness of God. This feeling of His death as a “ransom for many” may, indeed, have obscured for a time His feeling of closeness with the Father, so that even in dying He was tempted as we are. Rather than forsaking the Father in that moment, He cried out to Him in prayer

Son of God - Jesus conceived of His divine sonship as unique as indicated by such assertions as “I and the Father are one” (John 10:30 NIV) and the “Father is in me and I am in the Father” ( John 10:38 NRSV). Elsewhere, He frequently referred to God as “my Father” ( John 5:17 ; John 6:32 ; John 8:54 ; John 10:18 ; John 15:15 ; Matthew 7:21 ; Matthew 10:32-33 ; Matthew 20:23 ; Matthew 26:29 ,Matthew 26:29,26:53 ; Mark 8:38 ; Luke 2:49 ; Luke 10:21-22 ). ...
At Jesus' baptism and transfiguration, God the Father identified Jesus as His son, in passages reflecting Psalm 2:7 . John emphasized Jesus' personal relationship to the Father
Adoption - God is a Father who graciously adopts believers in Christ into his spiritual family and grants them all the privileges of heirship. God declares that he is the Father of the nation Israel, whom he loves as his child (Isaiah 1:2 ; Hosea 11:1 ). More specifically, he says to David (and the Messiah), "You are my son; today I have become your Father" (Psalm 2:7 ); and of David's descendant, "I will be his Father, and he will be my son" (2 Samuel 7:14 ). And by him we cry, 'Abba, Father'" (Romans 8:15 ). As a result the Holy Spirit comes into the believer's heart crying, "Abba, Father" (Galatians 4:5 ). The intimacy of a relationship with God the Father in contrast to the ownership of slavery is a remarkable feature of salvation

Prodigal Son - The younger of a certain man’s sons, dissatisfied with the quiet life he is leading, resolves to leave his Father’s house; and, having received the share of property that fell to him, goes to a distant country and gives himself up with the fullest abandonment to every indulgence that appetite craved. He therefore resolves to return home, confess his fault, and solicit the place of a servant in his Father’s household. He carries out his intention, but his Father receives him with the greatest eagerness and affection, and orders a feast to be prepared in celebration of his safe return. His Father entreats him to enter into the spirit of the occasion; but he is obstinate and petulant, and complains that this display in honour of his brother is in marked contrast with the treatment accorded him. ...
Here, then, we have a Father and his son differing as to how a younger son who had grievously misbehaved himself ought to be treated. The fact of the young man’s wrongdoing and the sincerity of his repentance are accepted by both; but while the elder brother challenges the justice and propriety of rejoicing over the return of one who had been so headstrong and foolish, the Father firmly defends the course he had followed, and, in terminating the discussion, speaks with a finality that is not to be questioned: ‘It was meet that we should make merry and be glad: for this thy brother was dead, and is alive again; and was lost, and is found. The contrast is drawn between the Father and the elder brother in reference to their treatment of the wrongdoer, and not between the brothers either in regard to character or conduct. The substance of the parable is this: a F
