The Shema: Listen and Remember
January 8, 2016 • Deuteronomy 6
The Shema is a familiar, easily recognized Jewish prayer. It's probably as recognizable as "Now I lay me down to sleep" or the Lord's Prayer is to a Christian. Yet Christians should recognize the Shema too; we know it from Jesus Christ who quoted it to the religious teachers of his day when they asked him to name the greatest commandment. Join Groundwork as we dig into Deuteronomy 6 to discover what The Shema meant to Israel way back when, what it continues to mean for all of us yet today, and how it can strengthen our love for God.
