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 Haley! My experience has been a bit similar to yours – I had never really had these conversations in the church when I was young. Because of this, I feel like I had a pretty significant gap in understanding in regard to this topic, so studies like these have been immensely beneficial to my understanding of the Word and my faith as a whole. God doesn’t break promises, and I don’t think I had ever thought to apply this truth to this topic, and it certainly adds to my own compassion and love toward the Jewish people, too.
