Emmaus Gather is an international Bible study event for individuals to come together as the body of Christ to simultaneously study God's Word through Emmaus International's Correspondence School. This six-week study starts June 1st, and runs through July 13th. Enroll now to be a part of this world wide event.
Jonah is not only one of the most popular books in the Bible—it is also one of the most controversial. Its historical validity is questioned by skeptics and scholars alike. It is the actual account of a man who rebelled and was swallowed by a great fish. But it is so much more.
It is the story about someone like you and me. It is the story of Jonah's struggles, calling, disobedience, problems, and prayer life. It is the story of his encounter with God and of God's gracious dealings with him. It is the story of a man, and of an entire city, that got a second chance.
This six week online bible study runs from June 1st through July 13th, 2018. Each weeks content is released each Friday. Content also includes a ten question exam as well as interactive discussion board with other participants.
Emmaus Gather is open to any believer. While we would encourage you to do this event with others in your local body, individuals are welcome to join!
The online platform used for Emmaus Gather is Emmaus International's eCourse platform. This straightforward, easy-to-use resource will guide you through the various parts of the course for each week. Most weeks will include three elements: course text, a ten-question exam, and an interactive discussion board with other participants on a question related to the chapter.
Two of the weeks will also include a Write it out! question, giving you the opportunity to synthesize what you are learning from God's Word. These responses are private, and are sent to the Emmaus International headquarters for feedback.
Upon successful completion of the course, you will receive a certificate indicating your completion of Jonah through Emmaus Gather.
We want to encourage believers to study God's Word, to fellowship around God's Word, and to keep each other accountable to faithful Bible study. We hope that participation in Emmaus Gather will result in spiritual growth in individuals, and promote committed Bible study in churches across the world.
In our 75th year of ministry, after 10 years of the Emmaus Bible Challenge (formerly the Bible Book Challenge), we are offering a new resource for believers in Emmaus Gather. We invite you to join other Christians and churches around the world in studying God's Word together through a special, online-only edition of O.S. Hawkins's course on Jonah.
