"What is the greatest commandment?" Yeshua was asked. His reply:
Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one, and you are to love Adonai your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your understanding, and all your strength.
And the second is this:
You are to love your neighbor as yourself.
Yeshua (Jesus) saw this central creed of the Jewish people to be the most essential of all the commandments in the Bible. Why? Because it teaches about loveâ€”love for God, love for humanity, love for family, all so needed in today`s world.
Now, Irene Lipson, has written a superb book explaining each word of this lofty statement so it can be fully grasped and lived. Her depth of understanding of Hebrew opens up new insight into The Greatest Commandment.
