*All those who sat in the Sanhedrin looked intently at him and saw that his face was like the face of an angel. And the high priest said,

*Paul stood on the steps and motioned with his hand to the people; when all was quiet, he addressed them in Hebrew, `My brothers and fathers, listen to what I am about to say to you in my defense’" (Acts 21:40, 22:1). *
“*It depends on faith, in order that the promise may rest on grace and be guaranteed to all his descendants–not only to the adherents of the law but also to those who share the faith of Abraham, for he is the **father **of us all, as it is written, `I have made you the father of many nations’” (Rom. 4:16-17). *
*“I do not write this to make you ashamed, but to admonish you as my beloved children. For though you have countless guides in Christ, you do not have many fathers. For I became your **father **in Christ Jesus” (1 Cor. 4:14-15).
"I appeal to you for my child, Onesimus, whose* father** I have become in my imprisonment" (Philem. 10).
“I am writing to you, fathers, because you know him who is from the beginning. . . . I write to you, fathers, because you know him who is from the beginning” (1 John 2:13).
