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?
Hi Marina! You have such a wise point here. Taking another’s teaching and putting it against the Word of God to judge whether it is right and true is something that is so critical to our faith. Otherwise, we would have no idea if what we are hearing is something that aligns with the Lord and His character. I hadn’t known about his anti-Semitic writings, either – this is a perfect example of this great need!
