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?

Hello Paulo,
Really interesting to read of your ministry in the Middle East. I think you’ve highlighted the importance of the ‘Hebraic lens’. By recognising the Jewish roots of our faith, we are far better equipped to engage in the Near East and beyond. Cutting off Christianity from its Jewish origins would surely be a mistake, if we wish to effectively work with those of other faiths and worldviews.
