The Emmaus Road is a series of 24 courses designed to guide you through the Bible from little or no knowledge to a fuller understanding of God's Word. Each course builds on the previous one, progressively teaching about Jesus Christ and His Word. This is an excellent tool for studying God's Word individually, in discipling relationships, and in group settings.


An Emmaus course is a self-guided Bible study. The study includes around 12 chapters of solid teaching content, with each chapter followed by a brief exam with multiple choice and short answer questions. Once the course and exam are completed, send them back for grading and encouraging notes.
