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?

This is a really interesting perspective and I thank you for sharing it. I agree with you the bible is one story and it is important to see the narrative flowing toward the ultimate salvation of mankind and creation. One thing I would like to contemplate is that if God’s promise to the land made with Abraham remains valid, then what does that mean for the other peoples and groups which have lived there during the period after the second temple? I do not claim to have any answers, just thinking outloud.
