One of the world’s leading theologians and biblical scholars introduces the prayer that Jesus gave us. ‘Our Father, who art in heaven …’ When he saw Jesus praying, one of his followers asked him to teach them how to pray. Jesus instructed them in the right words to use. When we say the words of the ‘Our Father’ we pray not only as Jesus taught us but also (in part) we pray in the same way Jesus himself prayed. We are bonded to him in prayer.
