Join us for the best summer yet!

Topic:  "Exodus Part I: Liberation from Bondage"

Our focus for the 2022 Bible Study will be the book of Exodus, Part I, chapters 1 - 19.  (The second portion of Exodus will be in 2023, chapters 20 - 40).  Exodus continues the mega themes introduced in Genesis of God's covenant with Abraham and Israel as the special community to be God’s witness in the world, of the promise of deliverance and salvation this implies, and the many near misses when this promise seems so at risk.

The Commandments, which are the best-known part of Exodus, are located in chapter 20, the central core of the book and provide its structure. The first nineteen chapters act like a prologue, looking back at God’s deliverance of His people from Egyptian slavery.  The last half (chapters 20-40) tells how the people respond to this deliverance and God’s expectations for His people.  Please join us in person or virtually to explore the powerful events of Exodus that continue to affect our lives.

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.”
