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 appreciate your insight coming from the Southern Baptist background and their emphasis on the importance and relevance of the Old Testament. Similar to yourself, it was a belief I was exposed to as a child but have not encountered often as an adult attending a different church. As you said, it was a good reminder of how God’s promises are sure and that He is the same yesterday and today, and that He will fulfill His covenants.
