Welcome to our study in the book of Deuteronomy. This week we will be looking at chapter 6 and will cover the importance of the Shema. will look at four themes that run throughout this text which include the fear of the Lord, hearing and being attentive to the obedience of God in the Shema, a caution against disobedience and then obviously being obedient.
These themes are found throughout scripture and were not only important for Israel but are extremely important for the church today. The apostle Paul writes in 1 Corinthians 10 that everything that was written was written for our learning. Therefore, we look at this chapter in light of our relationships with God through the Lord Jesus Christ. may you be blessed.
