Abba, Father

Dr. Scott Callaham, Baptist Theological Seminary, Singapore

Dr. Scott Callaham is Lecturer of Hebrew and Old Testament at Baptist Theological Seminary, Singapore. He has authored and edited a number of books and articles and is currently completing a new teaching grammar of Biblical Aramaic. Dr. Callaham discusses the form, meaning, and theological significance of the Aramaic term Abba, which Jesus uses in his prayer in the Garden of Gethsemane and which also appears twice in Paul’s writings.

“Exegetically Speaking” is a weekly podcast of the friends and faculty of Wheaton College, IL and The Lanier Theological Library. Hosted by Dr. David Capes, it features language experts who discuss the importance of learning the biblical languages—Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek—and show how reading the Bible in the original languages “pays off.” Each podcast lasts between seven and eleven minutes and covers a different topic for those who want to read the Bible for all it is worth.

An Amazing Father

Here is my Facebook post of October 11, 2019.

Ten weeks ago today our adult son, Daniel Capes, died of a rare form of cancer. He was 36 years old. Here is one of my favorite pictures of Daniel and his son, Tobias Alexander Capes. The occasion was the wedding of our oldest son, Bryan Capes to Carolina Valera Capes. Daniel’s mom and I are incredibly proud of how wonderful a father he always was to Toby. Toby turned 5 years last Sunday.

Son, we miss you. I hope you know that. You turned out to be an amazing young man and father. We loved seeing you with Toby and will treasure the pictures and memories we have. We could not be more pleased with the person you are and will always be.Daniel and Toby 3
