Maranatha a phrase in that occurs only once in the New Testament, it is a phrase in Aramaic. The phrase also occurs in the Didache which comes under the Apostolic Fathers collection. It is said to be transliterated in the Greek language. The phrase appears at the end of Paul's First Epistle to the Corinthians as a farewell phrase. In the newer version it is translated as "Our Lord, Come!" in the earlier version its translation was "Come, O Lord".

According to the translation it shows that the phrase was a prayer which was said in order for Jesus Christ to return.

The Greek Equivalent stands for "Amen. Come, Lord Jesus".
