God the Father

God the Father is a name that distinguishes the Father as the first person of the Trinity. Jesus (Yeshua‘) is the Son of God. Through faith in Jesus we become sons and daughters of the Father and then the name that Paul used, God our Father, can be used by us too.

Several other New Testament names include the word “Father.”
