From cover to cover, the Bible makes one thing abundantly clear— God is relational. God desires a relationship with us, and God cares about our relationships with others, too. The commands to love God (Deut. 6:5) and to love neighbor (Lev. 19:18) are built into the fabric of the Hebrews’ life with God. This dual command is reinforced by Jesus, who acknowledges its centrality within Jewish law and its life-giving nature (Luke 10:25–29). And in the high priestly prayer in John’s Gospel, Jesus sums up God’s intentions for relationships: “That they may be one, as we are one” (John 17:11 NRSV).
