"For this reason I (Paul) also suffer these things; nevertheless I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that Day. Hold fast the pattern of sound words which you have heard from me, in faith and love which are in Christ Jesus. That good thing which was committed to you, keep by the Holy Spirit who dwells in us."   2 Timothy 1:12-14  NKJV

Emmaus Bible College exists to help disciples of Jesus Christ

to know God, His Word and His purposes for their lives

Perth Bible College 


1 College Court, Karrinyup, Western Australia

Perth Bible College arose from a vision of the world's need for the gospel of grace, the need for more effective servants of the gospel, and the need for intentional Bible-based ministry and theological training. During the past 80 years thousands of people have been trained and entered God's service in a host of ministries both here in Western Australia, interstate, and abroad. Perth Bible College continues today by the grace and faithfulness of God with this same vision. There are many who still need to be reached, and there are ministries everywhere that need to be started and strengthened by men and women skilled and passionate about the gospel. We believe that the love of God is greater than the need of the world. We also believe that God wants to use men and women who are committed to know, love and serve Him with integrity, to build up his church in order to reach the world with his love. Our vision is that Perth Bible College will continue to play a vital role in bringing students to an understanding of something of the height, breadth and depth of the love of God as shown to us in Christ Jesus. 80 years on we continue to commit ourselves to this vision; to equip others to be effective in "Thinking Service," in the many contexts in which God is calling his people to serve.

The College
Perth Bible College (PBC), established in 1928, is an interdenominational evangelical college which maintains a fine tradition of training men and women for ministry. The campus has outstanding facilities, including excellent accommodation on site. Perth Bible College is a participating member of the South Pacific Association of Bible Colleges. This has the advantage that all PBC courses are internationally recognised by evangelical and para-church agencies, guaranteeing further career opportunities for students. Further, all of the College's courses are fully government accredited, and PBC is a federally approved Higher Education Provider. Therefore, all students who are Australian citizens can access FEE-HELP, and full-time Australian students may be eligible for AusStudy.

Emmaus Bible Correspondence School

The Emmaus Bible Correspondence School is the largest in the world

 supplying over one million Bible correspondence courses world wide each year. It is evangelical, non-denominational in outreach, with the courses published for the purpose of encouraging people of all ages to study the Word of God, the Bible. We trust you find it helpful as you discover more about who we are, what we do, and what correspondence courses we can offer you to study in the privacy of your own home. We can’t enjoy a walk with the Saviour in person, as the disciples on the road to Emmaus did, but we can experience his presence through the written word. ECS Ministries has developed a number of course study books to help you know the Lord Jesus, deepen your understanding of the Scriptures, and to grow in your walk with God.


Our courses cover a number of subjects that can help new and mature believers alike. Some courses deal specifically with discovering what Christianity is all about. Others delve into the foundations of the Christian Faith, while some are for children and young people. In addition, there are specific studies to take you through individual books of the Bible, along with doctrinal studies, topical studies and Bible surveys. Many people like to take advantage of the “correspondence course” format of the studies and choose to take the multiple choice exams (approx. 120 questions for each study book) that comes with the course. They appreciate the instructor / student relationship and the certificates we issue to acknowledge achievement. As you consider the materials on their Website, we trust you find the courses helpful as you take...

home Bible Study tool     

you will ever have...    

and it is FREE!    


Free Bibles, Commentaries, Maps and Books - on your computer

High-end interactivity amongst units, with good copy and paste to other programs like MSWord


e-Sword is a fast and effective way to study the Bible. e-Sword is feature rich and user friendly with more capabilities than you would expect in a free software package. The fact that e-Sword is free is just one of the blessings and does not speak of the quality of the software. I make my living writing software and I believe I have put forth my best effort in this endeavour. The real work, however, was put in by the godly men and women who devoted countless years creating the texts that have been made available for our benefit.


Jesus told us that since we've been blessed we should bless others. I am happy to provide a blessing to others in the form of free Bible study software! As a Bible student and teacher I have experienced the necessary work involved in searching the Scriptures for the competent preparation of a Bible study, Sunday school lesson, or a sermon. There are volumes of books available as study tools (and the Christian community is indebted to the various authors' perseverance and scholarship), but there is not enough time, money, or shelf space to properly take advantage of these resources. Computer software has changed the way we can study the Word of GOD. With a simple search or click of the mouse button, we now have access to these same volumes of scholarship within seconds!

You must check out this fantastic program for yourself








Bible Study Fellowship (BSF) International provides lay participants the tools, the environment, the relationships, and the support needed to grow deeper in knowledge and understanding of God and the Bible. This comprehensive inter-denominational Bible study program helps you gain a practical understanding of this important book. What makes BSF unique today is what made BSF unique in that first Bible study more than 50 years ago: a Four-Fold Approach to learning. BSF studies throughout the U.S. and around the world all utilize these four elements: 1) Daily questions for individual Bible study; 2) Discussion groups; 3) Challenging lectures; 4) Study notes. This approach is consistent with each of BSF's eight yearlong studies that coincide with the school-year calendar: John, Isaiah, Acts of the Apostles, History of Israel and the Minor Prophets, Romans, Genesis, Matthew, The Life of Moses. While this is a comprehensive 33-week study, it is also designed for you to jump into it at any time. Find out what's involved in getting started in a BSF class near you.



Is your Bible really the Word of God?


How to Study Your Bible Yourself ____________________________________________________________

There have been hundreds of books written on the subject of the evidences of the divine inspiration of the Bible, and these evidences are many and varied. Most people today, unfortunately, have not read any of these books. In fact, few have even read the Bible itself!  Thus, many people tend to go along with the popular delusion that the Bible is full of mistakes and is no longer relevant to our modern world.


Nevertheless the Bible writers claimed repeatedly that they were transmitting the very Word of God, infallible and authoritative in the highest degree. This is an amazing thing for any writer to say, and if the forty or so men who wrote the Scriptures were wrong in these claims, then they must have been lying, or insane, or both. But, on the other hand, if the greatest and most influential book of the ages, containing the most beautiful literature and the most perfect moral code ever devised, was written by deceiving fanatics, then what hope is there for ever finding meaning and purpose in this world?  If one will seriously investigate these Biblical evidences, he will find that their claims of divine inspiration (stated over 3,000 times, in various ways) were amply justified.



Prepare to Study Your Bible ________________________________________________________________

_____ Approach God's Word with an Attitude of Seeking

Read Proverbs 2:3-6. The word "discernment" means the ability to know right from wrong. The word "understanding" refers to the sensitivity to see life as God see it.
Read Proverbs 2:4. What are some of the attitudes of a person searching for hidden treasures?
Read Psalm 119:162. Remember: God's wisdom comes from intense and sincere study of His Word.

_____ Confess Your Sins & Have an Attitude of Humility

"Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you" (James 1:21). The words "get rid of" convey the idea of stripping off filthy clothes or removing dirt from our bodies. The word "filth" refers to any thought or conduct that is displeasing to God. When you are going to see someone who is special to you, do you put on your dirtiest clothes? The word "humbly" reminds us to come before God with the attitude of a child who wants to learn from Him (the author of the Bible). A teachable spirit shows God our willingness to allow Him to mould us.

_____ Have an Attitude That is Ready to Obey

Read James 1:22 and Luke 11:28.

_____ Pray Before You Begin

Always pray before you study the Bible. Confess your sins (1 John 1:9). Ask God to empower your life (Ephesians 5:18), open your eyes (Psalm 119:18), and guide your study (John 14:26).

_____ Study With an Attitude of Expectancy

"For Ezra had set his heart to study the law of the Lord, and to practice it, and to teach His statutes and ordinances in Israel." Ezra 7:10 (NAS). Notice that Ezra's desire was to "study ... practice ... and teach." That is the proper order of things. When it comes to the Bible, you cannot just study and teach. We must remember that "practice" always comes between "study" and "teach."

During Your Bible Study Session ______________________________


_____ Observation
Ask the following questions as you read:
Who? — is speaking / is being spoken to / is involved
What? — is happening / led up to this / resulted
Where? — Where does this take place?
When? — When did this occur?
Why? — Why is this being said or done?
How? — How did it affect the people involved? How was this accomplished? How did the people at the time view or interpret this?

_____ Interpretation
This is the step of determining the author's meaning. Interpretation is the step of clarifying the meaning and helping you understand why the Holy Spirit included this portion in Scripture. One way of interpreting a verse or passage is by paraphrasing it. Read the verse and then write it in your own words. Use Scripture to interpret Scripture. If you do not understand why something happened, then refer to other passages of Scripture that shed light on the matter.
_____ Correlation
This is the process of relating the passage under consideration to the rest of the paragraph, chapter, book, and other portions of Scripture. This step helps you understand the passage and keep it in proper context and perspective.

_____ Application
Application means putting God's Word into practice. Scriptural truth and principles must be put into practice if we are to benefit from our study of God's Word. Read Matthew 7:24-27, Luke 11:28, and James 1:22.
Ask yourself the following questions as you study:
• Is there an example for me to follow?
• Is there a sin for me to avoid?
• Is there a promise for me to claim?
• Is there something I should make a matter of prayer?
• What does this passage teach me?
• Is there something I am commanded to do?
• Is there a verse I should commit to memory?
