St. Paul Center Course
Dr. John Bergsma
About the course
This introductory course on the Four Evangelists, who wrote the Gospels, will discuss the author, date, and place of composition; the literary structure; and the contents of the narrative of each Gospel. A key theme in this course is the observation of unique features that distinguish each Gospel from the other three. Finally, we dive deeply into a few “signature” passages of each Gospel, reading them closely for their message to us today.

Here is what they have to say about their experience.
Wonderful Course! Father Hicks was excellent and engaging. I love this platform and how personal it feels.
I loved this course and Fr. Boniface Hicks.... I am sure that this course will help me to pray better! I also love the time of each course. Perfect!
This was a very good study on prayer. Well presented. I completed all the lessons and quizzes. The quizzes really do an excellent job of reviewing the lesson.
I signed up for this and I've started a course called: Full of Grace. It's EXCELLENT! I'm already on Day 2 and loving EVERYTHING about Emmaus Academy.
This continues to open many venues to learn more about the faith. You don't have to be a college student to explore a new way to experience learning.
This is amazing and something that will lift the knowledge of many. Thank you for your endless dedication.
