When Jesus states the Shema (Hear O Israel…) in answer to the greatest command, he adds something to the command to love God—to love God with all our mind. How is this done?
-Seek out a teacher of the faith
-Ask significant questions.
-Listen carefully to the answer from the teacher.
-Affirm the insights that are shared.
-Repeat the insights in your own words
-Apply the insights of the teacher to your own life.
-Allow teacher to comment on your understanding.
The scribe in this text gives us an example of how to love God with all one’s mind. He seeks out the teacher Jesus and asks him a significant question. Affirms the truth & his summary shows that he perceives that to love God with one’s mind is to seek understanding. Further, he understands the application that such love is greater than rituals.
