Witnesses of God

“God is God whatever we do or fail to do. But God, having set His image on every human being, took the risk of identifying His presence in history with one small people with whom He made a covenant in a lonely desert long ago, and that fact has charged Jewish existence with immense responsibility ever since. We are God’s witnesses. How the people of God behave affects how God Himself is perceived.”

Covenant and Conversation: Leviticus, p. 322
