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?
I agree with your statement. I’ve made a decision to not only revisit this particular course but to also share it when needed. Dr. McDermott’s teachings can give you a new lens when reading the bible. Some perspectives are hard to understand but with such teachings, it becomes easier to connect dots.
