The Bible App for Kids Celebrates Its First Anniversary

The Bible App for Kids is 1 YEAR OLD!

The Bible App for Kids launched one year ago on Thanksgiving 2013. Throughout the past year, children all over the world have been discovering God’s Word through a unique Bible experience all their own. Designed in partnership with OneHope, the Bible App for Kids has been installed on more than 4 million unique devices in 218 different countries. Kids have already spent more than 10 million minutes exploring more than 20 delight-filled stories.

It’s thrilling to see so many little ones growing in their love for God’s Word, and we’re looking forward to seeing how it shapes their generation. We’re also pretty excited about some recent and upcoming additions to the app.

More stories are coming. Next up will be “A Hairy Tale,” the Old Testament story of redemption about Samson, the man with long hair and miraculous strength.

More languages are coming, too. The Bible App for Kids launched a Spanish version this summer, then added Chinese and Korean just days ago, bringing new ways for kids to engage with God’s Word in the language of their hearts, no matter where they live. In the coming months, even more languages will be making their debut — like Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, and Arabic.

“Waters Part and Walls Fall”: The Newest Story in the Bible App for Kids

The newest story in the Bible App for Kids shows God’s people entering the promised land. It’s based on Numbers 13-14, Joshua 2-3, and Joshua 5-6 in the Old Testament. Moses sends 12 spies to explore the land flowing with milk and honey. Two return ready to trust God’s promise, but the other ten convince the people it’s just too dangerous. Years later, Joshua leads the next generation into Canaan with the ark of the Lord, and the Jordan River stops flowing for them, allowing them to cross on dry land.

As the Israelites approach the walled city of Jericho, the Lord’s messenger gives Joshua their “battle” instructions. They march around the city for seven days, carrying the ark and blowing their trumpets. When they finish marching on the last day, God’s people shout, and Jericho’s walls fall down for them.

New Bible App for Kids Stories about Jesus: “Beloved Son” and “A Test in the Desert”

The Bible App for Kids has two new stories about Jesus, both available now! Based on the New Testament accounts of Jesus’ baptism, “Beloved Son” shows John the Baptist preparing for Jesus’ arrival as the Savior of the world. And when Jesus comes to John to be baptized, you’ll see God’s Spirit descending on Jesus like a dove.

Then, “A Test in the Desert” recounts the story of Satan testing Jesus, as told both in Matthew 4 and Luke 4. God’s Spirit leads Jesus into the wilderness, where he fasts for 40 days, just before he’s confronted by Satan. Your kids will see Jesus quoting Scripture to Satan before he passes the test.
