Reply To: In the first lecture, Dr. McDermott teaches that the Bible is one story, and that God upholds his covenant with the Jewish people to this very day. Was this what you were taught growing up? If not, how will this insight change the way you read the bible going forward?
Thank you for your post. Supercessionism was very shocking to me when I first learned about it. I was even more shocked about famous Christian leaders who were supersessionist and antisemitic. What frustrated me was that I learned this in a secular academic setting rather than within the church. I wish I learned this within the Church so I can have a better understanding for the times I would have heard it in a secular settings. It would have been helpful to have some foundations before having conversations about the topic.
