Hello Devin! Thanks for sharing. I like that you shared a little bit about your personal history and knowledge. To expand further on your points, I think the importance of knowing history is that it helps us analyze problems and solutions. Likewise, when we do not know our history, we stay stuck in lies that may only further divide us. I also found it interesting that God spoke to the people of Israel first and in spite of the fact that he already knew that many would reject Jesus even till the point of death. This resonated with me a lot.
