Deut 6:4 - The Lord our God is One......
Jesus and Moses say the same thing - Look at Duet 6:4-5 and Mark 12:29-34! Interesting!
Here is what Matthew Henry says about God being the only "One":
A brief summary of religion, containing the first principles of faith and obedience. These two verses the Jews reckon one of the choicest portions of scripture: they write it in their phylacteries, and think themselves not only obliged to say it at least twice every day, but very happy in being so obliged, having this saying among them,Blessed are we, who everymorning and evening say, Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God is one Lord.But more blessed are we if we duly consider and improve,1. What we are here taught to believe concerning God: thatJehovah our God is oneJehovah.(1.) That the God whom we serve is Jehovah, a Being infinitely and eternally perfect, self-existent, and self-sufficient. (2.) That he is the one only living and true God; he only is God, and he is but one. The firm belief of this self-evident truth would effectually arm them against all idolatry, which was introduced by that fundamental error, that there are gods many. It is past dispute that there is one God, and thereis no other but he,Mk. Let us therefore have no other, nor desire to have any other. Some have thought there is here a plain intimation of the trinity of persons in the unity of the Godhead; for here is the name of God three times, and yet all declared to be one. Happy they that have this one Lord for their God; for they have but one master to please, but one benefactor to seek to. It is better to have one fountain that a thousand cisterns, one all-sufficient God than a thousand insufficient ones.
