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 resonate with that Blake! I think the churches I attended as a kid had no intention of preaching supercessionism per se. Given Dr. McDermott’s lecture, though, I see how it can slip in there by default, given it’s very broad teaching throughout Christian history. I wonder if the experience is different for reformed folk who might have heard specific sermons addressed at the idea of Old and New covenants and what they mean for Israel….
