Topic:  "Exodus Part II: Liberation from Bondage"

In October 2022, a lively group of Bible students from around the US gathered at the beautiful Cedars Camps in the Ozarks of Missouri to explore the first 18 chapters of Exodus. Guided by lecturer Madelon Maupin, they learned more about one of the Bible’s most dramatic stories: the Hebrew people being freed from enslavement in Egypt under the leadership of the great Moses.

This fall, Madelon will continue an exploration of Exodus. But now the focus will be on the Law—the Law that God gave Moses on Mt. Sinai. These Ten Commandments are the moral precepts that have shaped civilization for the last 3,000 years.

We are on holy ground in these chapters, which begin with Exodus 19 and end with Chapter 40, the conclusion of the book.  Like the Israelites of old, we learn why the moral law is the natural partner of freedom. We see how the Hebrews begin to become a people who are guided by the power of the Law and who approach the core of the Torah itself. Through these chapters, we discover how to establish our own God-led community and how to navigate life’s many choices.

Read below for further details about how you can be part of this uplifting workshop where we Bible students can probe one of our greatest treasures:  the Scriptures.

What our participants say

"As a first-time student at the program and at your camp, I was not sure what to expect.  I was wonderfully impressed with the accommodations, the kindness and thoughtfulness the entire staff expressed both at dinner and when walking throughout your beautiful camp."

"This opportunity to attend Bible study at CedarS has been rewarding beyond works. The depth of study, including history, geography, and spiritual import has been invaluable. I am enriched."

“Madelon is so well informed on the latest biblical scholarship and archaeological evidence and that helps to clarify so much of what we were discussing and learning.  One of the most strengthening realizations coming from these talks is how immediately relevant and applicable the Bible is today, right now in our lives.  Madelon shows this in so many ways, with personal experiences, quotes from other Bible scholars, and audience participation.”
