"Genesis Part I: Where It All Began"

(Chapters 1 - 25)

The Hebrew Scriptures come to life as we dive into the timelines and interconnectedness of stories so familiar. We explore historical, political, and geographical context, starting with the Patriarchs, followed by the Exodus and the establishment of Israel. We'll examine what role Judges played, why a Monarchy arose, and why a completely new office needed to arise: the prophets. We then look at a reverse Exodus, called the exile. Through it all is this remarkable thread of God's enduring love and covenant with His people.

"Acts of the Apostles: 

Seeing the Holy Spirit in Action" 

After the  resurrection and ascension, the followers of Christ Jesus found themselves wondering what to do next, and then it happened:  the descent of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost.  Acts tells how men and women were transformed by this singular event.

This talk will share the historical, geographical, political and religious background to provide greater insight that can guide each of our Christian journeys today. The goal is to pull forward the lessons those early Church workers learned in the power of the Holy Spirit and the courage it provides to share with others the transforming message of Christ Jesus.

I loved this seminar. I loved the maps, the illustrations, the graphics, the works of art—the whole slide show that accompanied Madelon’s narrative. But even without them (well, leave me the maps, please!) the narrative provided the history, social mores, the cultural surround of the world-changing story of what became of the gospel, the good news, after the man Jesus left the physical scene in the year 33 C.E. I was absolutely riveted for six hours, as was the person who watched it with me. I took 28 pages of handwritten notes, because that’s how I best process what’s coming at me. And during the breaks I took deep breaths, because you can only drink from a firehose for so long. After it was over and my desk had departed, I spent another three hours just going down rabbit holes of research with google. I only stopped because SOMEBODY wanted dinner. Thanks for a great Saturday, Madelon. I’m looking forward to Genesis on the 26th!

Madelon has so much knowledge about the Bible. I hope you got a chance to watch and listen to her for Acts. Fifth Church of Christ Scientist, Indianapolis, sponsored it. We have heard lots of wonderful reviews. I plan to read Acts again using her illustrations.


It was very insightful.

Acts of the Apostles talk, a very worthwhile, accurate history lesson

This presentation is a solid and detailed look at the history of a most important point in the struggle for survival of Christianity. It is packed with the customs, culture, and politics of the time, and all backed up by many maps, paintings, sculpture, photographs, and much more. I learned so much about each individual mentioned in this New Testament book, even though I have read and studied it throughout a lifetime. The presenter is generous and highly educated on this topic. The pace is careful and clear. I was not disappointed.
