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?
Hi Audra, I appreciate your insight, and what you said about God being the same today as He was yesterday, and His promises of the past are ones that He still upholds today really resonated with me. Growing up, I understood the covenant God had made to the Jewish people, but I made the assumption God had fulfilled that covenant with Jesus in the new testament and therefore, some Jews had missed the covenant, but you are correct, God upholds his promises still and every Jew has the opportunity to enter into that covenant today and enter into a relationship with Jesus.
