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?
Encouraging to read your response, Josiah. That’s my big takeaway too, we know God will be faithful to us because of His faithfulness to the Jewish People from thousands of years ago, through today. It is interesting to see biblical prophecy unfold, that Israel was established as a secular state, but undeniably in fulfillment of God’s word, quite miraculously. I am thankful I also grew up being taught that God’s covenants are eternal.
