You are invited!  We hope you will join us at the beautiful Cedars Camps for four rich days of learning and growing in your spiritual understanding of the Bible, as well as making new friendships with fellow Bible students.  

Topic:  “Genesis:  Where it All Began”

A Note from Facilitator Madelon Maupin:  Our in-depth Biblical study for 2019 is the book of Genesis.  Its Greek meaning,  "origin, source," conveys its unique place in the Biblical Canon.  Here is the beginning story of God’s creation and the community called to bear witness to the Creator, Israel. 

Because Genesis is fifty chapters, the study will be divided into two parts:  Part I, 2019, will cover chapters 1 – 25.   Part II will address the remaining chapters of 26-50 in 2020.  Handily, many commentaries divide Genesis into four parts, so this is a natural division.

In addition to examining content, authorship, the creation and flood stories, we’ll begin a deep look into Abraham and his heir, Isaac, one of the patriarchs of Israel Jesus referred to so often.  Part I of our study will take us through the Isaac stories, and part II will pick up with the Jacob narrative to the end, concluding with Joseph. 

As always, the intent is to look not only at the historical, political and religious context of Genesis, but also to see how the themes of promise and faithfulness weave throughout the narratives into our lives today. 

A workbook with study questions per chapter will be provided, as well as a PowerPoint to illustrate key points.  Those interested in attending should contact CedarS soon as space fills up, and begin rereading Genesis, noting fresh insights.  I look forward to this deep dive into the Scriptures with you.

Facilitator Bio:  Madelon Maupin has a Masters in Theological Studies from San  Francisco Theological Seminary, has taught at Principia Summer Session, led numerous Bible study sessions at Adventure Unlimited, taken people to the Middle East and given talks on the Bible around the world.  She served as Cultural Historian for Princess Cruises for trips throughout Biblical lands.  Her company website, www.BibleRoads.com is filled with resources for both individual and group Bible study, including talks, workbooks and online streaming video courses. 

Participant Testimonials: 

"These Bible studies have really upped my game.  Everything from healing insights for me personally, really getting what Paul meant about supporting/loving my fellow church members and attendees and being a better Sunday School teacher.  I now actually enjoy reading Revelation too!  Who knew!"     -Doug Wood, MA

"I attended Madelon Maupin's Bible Workshop on Revelation at CedarS Camps.  The venue was spectacular!  CedarS' employees are all super helpful and quite enthusiastic, starting with Warren and Gay, throughout the entire staff.  Madelon's presentations are vivid, thought provoking, and draw out the Bible student in you." -Lynn Smith, CA

“When I first signed up for one of Madelon’s Adult Bible Seminars I expected to learn a little bit about the featured book, Daniel. What I didn’t anticipate was the depth and excitement of the learning, the comradery with the other participants, the total camp experience (what fun after all these years!) and did I mention the FOOD!  Since that first session several years ago, we’ve taken a deep dive into Mark, Isaiah, Psalms, Paul’s letters and Revelation, and I can’t wait for Genesis!  I wouldn’t miss it for anything!”  Cindy Zwick, CS
