The first question
One of the first dialogues in scripture, the first question in sacred Scripture, is God saying to man, “Adam, where art thou?” Man, why are you hiding? Why do you run from me? The next dialogue is about the neighbor. God says to Cain, “Where is thy brother Abel?” God is immersed in the thought of man. Here we find the first two laws of God, love of God and love of neighbor, in the two questions: “Man where art thou?” and “Where is thy brother?” It was at the beginning of humanity, we find, therefore, that humanity received a call from God to communion with himself. God will not let man go.
