Shema Yisrael in Hebrew. Shema Yisrael (or Sh’ma Yisrael or just Shema) (Hebrew: שְׁמַע יִשְׂרָאֵל; “Hear, [O] Israel”) are the first two words of a section of the Torah (Hebrew Bible) that is a centerpiece of the morning and evening Jewish prayer services. The first verse encapsulates the monotheistic essence of Judaism: “Hear, O Israel: Yahweh our God is the one, the only Yahweh. You must love Yahweh your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength” (Deuteronomy 6:4-5 NJB(.

This strict monotheism is also proclaimed in the New Testament.According to the Lord Jesus Christ, the first commandment is the same: “Listen, Israel, the Lord [Yahweh] our God is the one, only Lord [Yahweh], and you must love the Lord [Yahweh] your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind and with all your strength (Mark 12: 28-30). See also, (1 Corinthians 8:4b-6, Ephesians 4:4, 6; 1 Timothy 2:5).

Orthodox Rabbi Reveals Name of Messiah~”JESUS”,”Yehoshua” or “Yeshua”

Regardless of the argument about the authenticity of the story told in the video, it is amazing and wonderful to hear that the Son of God, Jesus appeared to a Hebrew Rabbi as He did that before to Saul of Tarsus [St Paul]. I am hoping for the salvation of the Jews. Isaiah also cries out concerning Israel: “Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, The remnant will be saved” (Romans 9:27).
I am hoping for the same vision to every Jew and Muslim. Jesus said, “And other sheep I have which are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they will hear My voice; and there will be one flock and one shepherd” (John 10:16).   
In Hebrew, the name of God is u^v%ohy [Yahweh: The Father]. Isaiah said, “You, O Lord [Yahweh], are our Father; Our Redeemer from Everlasting is Your name” (Isaiah 63:16). Moreover, the name of the Son of God is u^v%ohy [Yahoshua: Jesus], that means “Yahweh Saves”. The angel said to St. Mary, “You will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Jesus u^v%ohy” (Luke 1:31). And to Joseph, he said, “She will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus u^v%ohy, for He will save His people from their sins” (Matthew 1:21).
