S'hema Yisrael, Adonai Elohanu, Adonai Echad.
The "S'hema" gets its name from the first Hebrew word of the Biblical text in Deuteronomy 6:4 “Hear, O Israel! The Lord our God, the Lord is one”
The English word “Hear” renders the Hebrew word “S'hema.”
This “prayer” was so widely practiced in the second-temple period, Jesus himself grew up praying it. This prayer was formative for Jesus, and he drew upon it in his teachings. He was once asked which command in the Torah was the greatest:
Jesus answered, “The first of all the commandments is, ‘Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God is one Lord.
You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength. This is the first commandment. The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” Mark 12:29-31
