NAME OF GOD: ‘Ab

Pastor Tony Evans created a list of all the names of God and their pronunciations that can be found here. I broke each one down separately. However, I felt that it would be nice to have all of them in one place.

MEANING: Father

When I saw this meaning, I immediately thought of the Scripture that talks about God being father to the fatherless. And this is the Scripture. Haha.
