Abba is a cognate for the Hebrew word for “father”, Av. In Galatians 4:4-6, the Apostle Paul wrote “But when the set time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those under the law, that we might receive adoption to sonship. Because you are his sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, ‘Abba, Father.’”
