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 sharing! I have heard of these two perspectives and it is so interesting maneuvering through the different types of theology and figuring out where one stands. It is incredible what can happen when we get in the word and begin to unpack and ask big questions- because God is not a God of confusion but desires for us to seek out the truth. I agree with you it is not two separate stories but the continuation of the promise and the covenant of God.
