“I believe the time is right for the stated vision of Emmaus to become reality: ‘a biblically literate and passionately Catholic community, filled with the knowledge and love of Christ, through a deepening understanding of Sacred Scripture and its centrality in the life and liturgy of the Church.’”
-James Conley, Bishop of Lincoln
Welcome to The Emmaus Institute for Biblical Studies. Registration for Fall 2019 courses is now open! Click on the titles below to read more about each course.
We’ve designed this course to help people find their way around in the Bible by providing a framework that is easy to grasp, and a panoramic view of God’s grand story, from creation to new creation.
Join us for an introduction to the study of the Bible generally and a detailed consideration of its “Beginnings” in chapters 1-11.
In this course we’ll investigate the Eucharist as a major theological theme in the Old Testament that emerges in a special way when Jesus institutes it as a sacrament in the New Testament.
Throughout this study, we will consider how the Bible intends to influence us and shape our lives as readers who are being made into disciples of Jesus by our contemplation of the sacred text.
