The central theme of the arc is the Shema. However, it is not the main point , as it often called. Rather, Moses commands a specific response to the truth of the Shema which flows into all of life. The outline is something like this: Here Israel: The Lord is one. Therefore, Love him with your all. As a result of your love, let this truth infect every aspect of your life. It would be subtle lie if we were to talk about results or inferences as though they were somehow more important than the thing which birthed them. That would be like saying that the Church is more important than Christ, because he is merely the head, or source or the life of the church. Clearly, that is to put the cart before the horse. What we have here is a beautiful and fundamental truth. God is our God, and he is one. The oneness of God, far from being a stark unitarian force, produces the great diversity within life. As God's oneness and presentness permeates our own existence, it must result a broad diversity of places, seasons, and ways of love and respect. For example, one loves God differently with one's children than simply at home. With a child, we love God by teaching him about God. With the home, we love God by reminding ourselves the great oneness and usness of him: we create doorposts to remember his greatness. The fascinating thing about Duet 6:4-9 is that it is so comprehensive in scope, and yet so open ended in mode. It seems that we cannot take each line as a literal command, or we would be wearing phylacteries on our foreheads all day long. Rather, the point is to show the great extent our love for him, in response to the greatness of his love for us. So, while the message is very clear that God ought to be loved and honored in every aspect of our life, whether place or time, alone or in relationship, the message is equally clear that there are some parameters, but also great freedom in how we ought to do such a thing. And what a simple task: to love him with everything we are and have. Surely it is proof positive that we are in constant sin, and as such it is among the greatest forerunners of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. As with the Sermon on the Mount, we look to God for the strength to obey the shema, but was also cry out in despair, "Lord, save us from the Shema!" God is one. He is our God. He is everywhere. There is no escaping him. And he commands us to love him with everything. Lord Jesus, be our Help! We need a prophet, a priest, and a king who have met these outrageous requirements, and we have one in Christ. With him there is forgiveness from the burning wrath of God. Ac-Res vs. Ac-Mn - It seems that Ac-Mn best describe the way in which something is done, e.g. I put the screw in the wall (Ac) by drilling it in with my power drill (Mn). The big question, therefore, is how? Ac-Res seems to be something of a g/inf relationship but in true-life form, e.g. I drilled the screw into the wall (Ac), and so I was able to hang the picture on it (Res). The big question, therefore, is what happened as a result? Are vv. 6-9 best described as an Ac-Res or Ac-Mn relationship? I admit, this is a difficult problem. On the Ac-Mn side, we might say that 6-9 answer the how question of the command to love God as stated in 4-5. This would mean that the way in which we love God is by doing x, y, & z. On the Ac-Res side, if we say that 6-9 answers the what happend as a result question, about the love of God, then we are saying essentially the the x, y, & z actions come from the outpouring of the Love of God. Already we can see the difficulty: If we say it is strictly Ac-Mn, then we say that loving=doing, which takes the love out of love, but if we say that it is entirely Ac-Res, then we say that loving>doing, which means the doing comes completely after the love. However, it is clear from God and from experience that loving and doing comingle such that at times either one could precede the other, and that one often cannot tell them apart. However, given that God is commanding love first and action second (whether view it is a temporal or hierarchal relationship), it seems best to define the relationship between 4-5 & 6-9 as Ac-Res, if we have to choose.
