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?

Paulo, I appreciate your post and can relate to your experience. I also didn’t grow up hearing much about the Jewish roots of our faith. I understood that God chose the Jewish people and remained faithful to them despite their disobedience, but my knowledge was limited. This course has provided me with deeper insights into the similarities and differences between our faiths, much like my visit to Israel did. It has given me a new perspective on reading the Bible and significantly deepened my understanding.
