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?
I wasn’t given supersessionist teaching. Only that Jesus is the only way to be saved, but that didn’t stop a Jewish person or anyone from being saved if they accept Christ. When I’ve been to Catholic services this was neve brought up, there would be a short scripture reading a sermon and hymns but there wasn’t debates about whether the Jewish people could be saved I took it as a given they were saved and the covenant applied to the Jewish people.
