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?

Growing up, I was thought that Jewish people who were not Christian had rejected Christ and, in a way, had missed the opportunity to obtain the gift of the promise and covenant God had made to those Jews who did not accept him. The insight from Dr. McDermott about God upholding his covenant with the Jewish people to this very day was very surprising. I had never thought about it that way. It makes me want to evangelize and spread the gospel among the chosen people. I personally see how Christianity has been the biggest blessing in my life and I want to share the gift of Christ with others. Knowing that God still upholds his covenant with Jews, makes me realize how much God loves us, regardless of how many times we reject, sin or turn away from his love, He is always patient and waiting for all of us.
