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 completely understand where you’re coming from. Growing up, I also saw the Bible as a cohesive story but didn’t grasp the present importance of the Jewish people. It never felt right to think God would abandon His chosen people. This course has been eye-opening for me too. Dr. McDermott’s teachings have shown me the deep connections between Christians and Jews and provided solid scriptural foundations to explain God’s enduring love for the Jewish people. It’s been transformative!
