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, I like how you mentioned that the Gentiles are now welcomed into the covenant of God through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. I feel like many of us Christians grow up singing that God is a covenant-keeping God and keeps His covenants to a thousand generations. However, if we don’t have the knowledge of God keeping His covenant to Israel, our understanding of His covenant keeping power can be quite limited. I am thankful that we now have that knowledge.
