A Bible talk by Madelon Maupin
First Church of Christ, Scientist, Westport is happy to host a Bible talk entitled "Revelation: Unpacking Heavenly Symbols" given by well-known Bible speaker Madelon Maupin from Newport Beach, CA.
The New Testament's final book has long been a puzzle for Christians trying to interpret its coded language and vivid images. Written to Churches, how can its messages help individuals and churches today in their spiritual growth? We'll look at authorship, dating and structure as well as the historical, political, social, religious and cultural practices to find answers. Then we have an informed basis to pull the text forward to see how its patterns apply to Christians today -both collectively and individually. Please join us and bring your Bible!
Hailing from Newport Beach, CA, Madelon Maupin is a well-known Bible speaker who is often described as "making the Bible come alive!" With a BA in Religion from Principia College and a Masters of Theological Studies from San Francisco Theological Seminary, Madelon lectured for Princess Cruises throughout the Middle East and had a leadership consulting firm for many years before launching Bible Roads, a Biblical education resource company offering Bible study workbooks, online video courses and talks. Madelon is a member of the National Ecumenical Team at The First Church of Christ, Scientist, teaches Biblical courses at Principia's Summer Session and writes for the Christian Science publications.
