The spirit of adoption (pneuma uioqesia). See on this term uioqesia, Galatians 4:5 . Both Jews and Gentiles receive this "adoption" into the family of God with all its privileges. "Whereby we cry, Abba, Father" (en h krazomen Abba o pathr). See Galatians 4:6 for discussion of this double use of Father as the child's privilege.
