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?

Matheus, Thank you for sharing that! It has shocked me and been very eye opening to see the influence of Christians over time in various forms of persecution of the Jews. For me I’m also remembering seeing very allegorical teaching at times of scriptures in the Old Testament as applying to church but not considering the literal meaning being spoken to or of Israel and/or Judah as it was written to. May God help you in your desire to bring awareness and I say Amen that we would would grow in our love for the Jewish people and appreciation for what God has done through Israel (and is still doing) to bless the world! God bless you!
