Topic:  “Genesis Part 2:  The Story Continues”

Topic Description:  In 2019, we covered the background of Genesis and the first 25 chapters in Genesis Part I. In 2021, we will continue our exploration of Genesis by taking a deep dive into the last half of Genesis, chapters 26-50.  Here the family story of Abraham's kinsmen continues, beginning with Isaac, but primarily focusing on Jacob and his sons, who became the beginning of Israel's Twelve Tribes. These may be familiar stories but we will be looking in fresh ways at their cultural, political and geographical implications as well as how their spiritual meaning can be brought forward to today.

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,, is filled with resources for both individual and group Bible study, including talks, workbooks and online streaming video courses.

What if I did not attend Part 1?  No problem!  The workshop will start with a brief overview of the background of Genesis, including authorship, dating, creation stories and structure.  This will also be a helpful review for those who are returning.

You can also prepare by accessing Madelon's two-hour audio recording on "Genesis:  Book of Origins" as well as her six-hour video synopsis of "Genesis: Book of Origins."  These recordings address key points covered in Genesis part one, such as the dating scholarship that shapes how we might read the book, along with themes of the "reversal of the impossible" as well as the divine promises woven throughout.

Study materials: In-person participants will receive a new workbook (as they did in Part I) upon arrival at CedarS.  Virtual participants will receive the same workbook, but in a PDF format, on October 14th.  In addition to preparing for class sessions by answering the questions, the workbook provides a way to collect and organize notes from research and class discussions.  A first assignment will be emailed to participants two weeks prior to the course.

Financial assistance:  Financial Assistance is available through The Campership Fund for both the in-person and virtual classes.  We want to make sure this wonderful opportunity is available to every earnest seeker!

What our participants say

"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 W., 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 S., 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 Z., CS
