Can someone please post the Aramaic lettering for Abba, as used in the New Testament? IE: Mark 14:36.

Thank you!

    Hello,

    I'm sorry I don't have a Syriac keyboard to type the lettering for you, but you should be able to do this yourself. In Aramaic, the word for father is transliterated as ABA (with just one B), the same as I believe in Hebrew. So just think of it as the same word, but different script or font.

    Here's the site with the Aramaic alphabet: http://www.omniglot.com/writing/syriac.htm

    Scroll down to the Estrangelo script, and just string together the letters alap-beith-alap. And since the word is spelled the same way whether you write from left to right or right to left, it won't matter, but Syriac, like Hebrew, is written from right to left.

    Hope this helps! :)

    Following wonderment, the Estrangelo script for ABA is; ܐܒܐ .

    The font does not seems to be supported in the forum, though.
