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 Andrew, thanks for your insight. I had never heard of the term “The Stick of Judah,” so that was interesting to learn from you! I appreciate your explanation of how your church defines Christian-Jewish relations. I believe that, no matter what our exact doctrine is as a Christian, we should be able to find both similarities and differences about the stance on Hebraic Christianity and even Hebraic Judaism- and we’ll likely see even more similarities!
