To be even more accurate, say "Protestant" or "Calvinist" values.

Maimonides existed in an era where there was no Protestantism and anybody translating the Bible into the vernacular, toppling icons, or suggesting that only Grace was necessary would have been burned at the stake.

Gibberish. Jesus and the apostles were Jewish. The Old Testament and Torah share many of the same books including Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy.

Exactly. From Pilgrim's Progress to the Sermons of Cotton and Edwards, to Spelling Horns of the 18th and 19th Century and throughout literature, the OT is extensively quoted. Just look at the popularity of OT names like Jacob, Issac, Aaron, Abraham, etc. in the USA.

God's will worked his way into the Dissenters and Providence gave man the tools to print and read the Bible en masse, and all populations that did so were excessively blessed.

The Bible needs to return to K-12, as does Western Civ, big time.

His Prager U videos are getting too popular with the younger generation. To the point where various social media platforms have attempted to censor them.

Was a time every child would have known the reference to "the widow's mite". "A good Samaritan" is routinely used to describe someone who helps a stranded stranger. "Raising Cain" describes a good for nothing creating violence. "that was his cross to bear", on and on.
