Word Study: Shema – “Listen”


Is hearing and listening the same thing? This video, discover how sound entering your ear-drums isn’t synonymous with “listening”, at least from a biblical perspective.

    Thank you for this clarification! I’ve always had an issue with the English word “obey” to me it means to act blindly and mindlessly. Surely God wants us to “shema” instead…love it.

    Thus faith means not merely intellectually assenting – agreeing with the Christian faith – but needs obedience: “hearing”.

    actually… Shema means “gaurd and protect” from Shamir “thorn” as in protecting torah (or practical example, they would place a bee hive in the Christ’s Thorn Jujube, native to Israel to protect the honey from wild animals. This thorn bush was also used to gaurd and protect as a hedge around a flock… Amazingly the (pollination) flower of this thorn made the honey never crystallize… “flowing in milk and honey”. Torah is compared to honey, and ‘full circle’ this was used to crown *Yeshua (*Torah in the flesh).
