Chapter Summary

When asked about the meaning of 'the speech of God as Father in the prayers of Jesus tradition, it is necessary to distinguish first between the title and the name of God, which is assessed for any other source text in its formal and substantive nature. The basis for this is necessarily a brief but comprehensive as possible sighting of Old Testament and antique-Jewish evidence of speech or of God as Father in the context of prayers. In the traditional prayers of Israel and of Judaism from the period up about 100 n. Chr. found the title "father" of not few places and overall in many ways using. Even the absolute used "Father" can be used differently. The address of God as "Father" is found. Matthew and Luke deliver in different contexts, the so-called acclamation of Jesus. The Greek and Hebrew text passages are summarized in the Appendix.
