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?
reading bible was important in church i attended also, I moved out of the area though. I did not make the connection that the land was important. I’m not sure why it wasn’t until I’m now because life experience and taking Philos Pathfinder course that I realized the importance of land and a place to call one’s own. I agree with you that reading the bible and knowing the importance of the land literally helps to understand Christianity and Judaism more.
