Jesus is reported as saying "ABBA hO PATHR" in the Greek text of Mark
14:36, with the Aramaic loan word in the Greek. Paul uses the identical
phrase in Romans 8:15 and Galatians 4:6.
"Abi" is probably a Hebrew and/or Aramaic translations or
reconstructions of Jesus' words at other places e.g. Matthew 10:32,
which is recorded in the Greek words hO PATHR MOU, "my Father".
