Bible Talks – Cedars Camps
Oct 17-21, 2019 – “Genesis: Where it all Began” Part I (Chapters 1 – 25)*
The Registration is now open. Contact Cedars directly. (This program fills up so do register early if interested.)
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. This is a tremendous opportunity to study a Biblical text in depth with fellow Christian Scientists, in a beautiful setting. We are thrilled to be at the Bible-loving Cedars camps for the third time this Fall and hope you can join us.
From a participant:
“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 camaraderie 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
