The present work, which belongs to the biblical spirituality domain, aims to extract some characteristics about obedience from a few biblical fragments that, although they do not directly refer to obedience, nevertheless constitute paradigms for a much better understanding of obedience and a real support of practicing it. For this reason, we have called these fragments that we will analyze “biblical paradigms”. Being a work of biblical spirituality, the emphasis will not be placed on biblical study (in the sense of biblical exegesis), but on the spiritual hermeneutics of these biblical fragments, whose main purpose is the spiritual life, in a practical way of speaking.
