About Madelon Maupin
Although Madelon Maupin's academic background includes both undergraduate and graduate degrees in Biblical Studies, it is probably her 35+ years in business and her strong emphasis on written and verbal communication that give BibleRoads its "punch." Madelon spent 15 years in the newspaper industry, cultivating a commitment to highly focused, content-rich presentation and a strong research background. Over the next 20 years she headed a leadership consulting firm in Los Angeles, where she worked with some of the film industry's top firms and developed a capacity for clear, direct verbal communication. Ever since closing her consulting firm, it has been Madelon's joy to focus full-time on BibleRoads.com, which allows her to combine all of her skills in the talks and workbooks she presents on Biblical topics. Madelon's goal is to help others unlock the Bible in a non-denominational way so that they can discover the Scriptures' spiritual meaning and application to their lives. By delving into the history, politics, geography, customs, and culture of all the Biblical periods and books, she aims to enable readers and listeners to dive deep into these subjects themselves so they can find their own spiritual answer.
It does make it more vivid–thanks
Interesting to learn about Joppa and it many roles in the Bible, as well as about our own geography in the U.S. Blessings from the landscape–and from God–in both cases. Thank you Madelon!
I appreciate how you weaved the history and geography together; agree it makes it more vivid (good word). Looking forward to more of this. I’ve never been to the Holy Lands so especially helpful as a back drop to the Bible stories. Thank you, Madelon!
Always another way to see things with help from your bible research thank you Madelon
Jonah, David, Solomon, Tabitha, and Peter, all connected to Joppa – over a considerable timeline. Yes, it IS helpful to be able to relate the land to the people and events. Probably good to have a Bible map handy. Many Study Bibles include good maps. Thank you for your ever-evolving ideas!
Such great points tying the land to the Bible!
I’m reminded of driving uphill to Jerusalem and it’s position on a high hill, an elevated place, so that’s why they said go up to Jerusalem; also of Caesarea Philippi and the relationship to the hill where Jesus asked his disciples ‘whom do you say that I the son of man am?’ —Right across from the Roman temple site – the geography and location provide so much context and is enlightening. Thank you, Madelon.
