Maranata

Maranatha (either מרנא תא; Maran ‘tha’ or מרן אתא; maran ‘Atha’ Greek μαραναθά) – phrase is Aramaic, more specifically in the Syrian dialect, which was used only one time in the New Testament, and also in the book Didache (early christian work of 1 st century – Teaching of the Lord proclaimed to nations by the twelve apostles). This phrase is not translated, but transliterated into Greek.

This phrase is at the end of the first letter to the Corinthians (1 Cor. 16:22).

At the end of the book Revelation (22:20 ZJ), the same phrase is used as a prayer or request, but this time translated into Greek as “Look, Lord.”

In some translations of the Bible “maranata” is translated as “Come, our Lord!” Or “Come, Lord Jesus!” (In this variant, the phrase is written as “Marana tha!”).

There is another variation of this phrase, which is written as “Maran atha” which is translated as “The Lord is coming”, “The Lord will come” or “The Lord has come.”

 

Using of the word Maranata / Maranatha

The first Christians used this phrase as a greeting. Apostle Paul used it alson the in the 1st Corinthians 16, verse 22:
22. If anyone does not love the Lord, anathema, maranatha.
In this verse whe should understand the phrase “anathema, maranatha” as “mayhe/she be separated until the time of the Lord´s comin” in the Lutheran translation anathema is translated as “let him be accursed.”
An alternative to this part of the verse is that the phrase “maranatha” doesn´t have a sensory connection with the previous sentence and presumably is associated with the following verses:
22. If anyone does not love the Lord, let him be accursed!
23 The Lord will come. The grace of the Lord Jesus be with you
The word “Maranatha” was used in the service, for the invitation of God’s presence at the Lord’s Supper and to express wishes, let the Lord returns in confirmation of his Kingdom.
This equals to the request of the Church in the prayer: “Let Thy kingdom come”.
In relation to Jesus „Maranatha“ has two meanings – prayer -” See the Lord “- but also i tis an expression of faith -” The Lord will come soon! ”
Using of the word in the times of New Testament marked the faith of believers in anticipation of the coming of the Lord Jesus. This faith meant a desire to declare that the return of the Lord Jesus will be supported by the Power and by spiritual gifts and signs which the Lord is using in His environment to demonstrate that He lives in His nation!
In times of the Old Testament a King would travel to carry out the justice. A trumpeter went before him and blared the trumpet, warning the nation: “The King is coming!”
And those who had been waiting for justice wanted the king to also come to them. People in the region that the King was just visiting were preparing for his arrival – they cleaned themselves and repaired roads and thereby wanted to show their humility and desire to submit to the King.
That’s how today’s church, communicating with the Lord and manifesting His power in spiritual manifestations and signs that confirm the preached Word, eagerly awaits glorious return of the Lord Jesus, to take His church.
And the Church constantly declares that “the Lord will come” and prays “Maranatha! O, look, Lord Jesus! ”
