    As the reference below shows -- the idea of the relation of hearing to 
obedience is not that far off.

"The frequent use of hUPAKOUEIN for (the hebrew) SHAMA in the LXX shows how 
strongly the idea of hearing is still present for the translator ... Hence 
hUPAKOUEIN  and hUPAKOH as terms for religious activity are always to be 
thought of within the sphere of a religion which receives the  divine Word by 
hearing and then translates it into action..."  TDNT V.1 p.224

    "A Christian is one who recognizes Jesus as the Christ, the Son of the 
Living God, as God manifested in the flesh, loving us and dying for our 
redemption; and who is so affected by a sense of the love of this incarnate 
God as to be constrained to make the will of Christ the rule of his 
obedience, and the glory of Christ the great end for which he lives."

Charles Hodge in John Piper’s, A Godward Life
