This past Shabbat in synagogue, we read our weekly Torah Parsha, which includes the most well-known portions of Scripture in the entire Bible, especially to Jewish people. It is found in Deuteronomy 6:4-9, known in short as the Shema and V’Ahavta.
On my journeys to share my faith with people in the different countries I have visited, quite often after I speak, one or more of the people from the conference or church body at which I was sharing would come up to me and say these words, “I wish I was Jewish.”
There are many things in the Bible that help me to have confidence and faith in the overpowering forgiveness of G-D. One of the most significant is the book of Deuteronomy. Yes, the last book of the Torah, or first five books of the Bible.
