What is the Greatest Commandment of them all?

Yeshua answered, “The most important is, `Sh’ma Yisra’el, ADONAI Eloheinu, ADONAI echad [Hear, O Isra’el, 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 with all your strength.'” (Mark 12:29-30)

Yeshua was quoting the Torah in Deuteronomy 6:4-5, a passage known as the “Sh’ma”. It is considered the most important commandment, and is recited twice daily (morning and evening).
