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?

You are so right. Many traditionalists are in the mindset that we are the New Israel (Traditional Catholicism) and Judaism is to be eradicated which means we Christianize the Jews to become goyim (gentiles). True catholicity lies in the unity of Jew and Gentile becoming One new man (humanity). The Covenant was renewed for them and new to the Gentiles that we may enter into the commonwealth of Israel according to the promises of God to Abraham. see CCC839
