Jesus Reveals God the Father

“The German theologian Joachim Jeremias, a New Testament scholar, did a study in which he searched through the Old Testament  writings and existent rabbinic writings from ancient Jewish sources. He could not find a single example ever of a Jewish writer or author addressing God directly as Father in prayer until the tenth century AD. He found examples of God being referred to as “the Father,” but the word Father was never used in a direct form of personal address.” -R.C. Sproul
