Abba
        This Syriac or Chaldee word is found three times in the New
        Testament (Mark 14:36; Rom. 8:15; Gal. 4:6), and in each case is
        followed by its Greek equivalent, which is translated "father."
        It is a term expressing warm affection and filial confidence. It
        has no perfect equivalent in our language. It has passed into
        European languages as an ecclesiastical term, "abbot."
