Today’s Translation: The Voice Bible | Weekly Video: Called to Love (Mark 12:28-34) Jesus: “The most important commandment is this: “Hear, O Israel, the Eternal One is our God, and the Eternal One is the only God…”” – Mark 12:29 Live It Out! When asked what is the greatest commandment, Jesus recites what is known as “The Great Shema.” The Hebrew word shema means ‘to listen or to hear,’ and immediately precedes many important passages in the Old Testament. As Christians, we should always be listening to the wise words of our Heavenly Father by reading our Bibles.
