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?
Alex, I really appreciate the introspective take that you have on this issue. Not many people can look at the way they read Scripture and understand that it isn’t always about them, especially in the States. Also, your point about God being a covenant keeper is so important and really struck me as I was listening to the lectures, too. Likewise, diving into Hebraic thought is such a fun journey, so excited for you!
