We’ve recently released (or updated) the Bible App in all kinds of places, like Apple TV, Amazon Echo, BlackBerry 10, and Apple Watch, to name just a few. Check bible.com/app or search for “Bible” in your device’s app store to see what we have for you.

There’s a reason we’re so passionate about ensuring that everyone has access to the Bible. For each of us at YouVersion, when we discovered God’s story of love for us in His Word, it changed our lives. Our mission is personal. And this holiday season in particular, we have so many reasons to give God thanks.


Let the message about Christ, in all its richness, fill your lives. Teach and counsel each other with all the wisdom he gives. Sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs to God with thankful hearts. And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through him to God the Father.
Colossians 3:16–17, NLT

 

The Bible App has now been installed on over 200 million unique devices. And because of the generosity of our Bible publishing partners, YouVersion is able to offer more than 1,200 Bible versions, in almost 900 languages.

That’s reason to celebrate.

In New Bible App for Kids Story, “No Silver, No Gold,” Peter and John Heal a Man

Available now in the Bible App for Kids, “No Silver, No Gold” is the story of Peter and John healing a man who had never been able to walk. Based on Acts 3, “No Silver, No Gold” shows Peter and John beginning to do the things Jesus had taught them, spreading His good news all over Jerusalem.

One day as Peter and John are walking to the temple, they meet a man sitting by one of the temple gates. Because this man had never been able to walk, he couldn’t work at a regular job. So every day, his friends carry him to the temple and set him down by a gate, where he can ask people for money as they go by. As Peter and John come near, the man asks them for money.

NoSilverNoGold_Scene3_FINAL

Peter and John stop in front of the man, but they don’t have any money to give him. Peter tells him, “I don’t have silver, and I don’t have gold. What I do have can’t be bought or sold. In the name of Jesus, get up, walk, and be made whole!” Then Peter takes the man’s hand, and he stands up for the first time ever, his feet and ankles instantly growing strong. It’s a miracle!

NoSilverNoGold_Scene5_FINAL

The man starts running around, jumping up and down, thanking God for healing him. Everyone there is amazed. They’ve seen the man sitting outside the temple day after day, asking people for money because he couldn’t walk. Peter tells the people that it was Jesus who healed the man, so many of them decide they want to follow Jesus, too!

New in the Bible App for Kids: “In the Garden”: Peter Denies Knowing Jesus

Available now in the Bible App for Kids, “In the Garden” picks up where the story “A Goodbye Meal” left off. Based on the passages Matthew 26:31–75 and John 18:1–8, after Jesus finishes eating the Last Supper with His friends, they go on a nighttime walk toward a big garden. On the way, Jesus tells them that soon they will all run away and leave Him. One of Jesus’ friends, Peter, insists, “I will never leave you!” But Jesus tells Peter that before the sun comes up the next morning, Peter will say he doesn’t know Jesus — three times!

InTheGarden_Scene2_FINAL

When they get to the garden, Jesus asks His friends to pray with Him. But because it’s very late at night, they are all so tired that they fall asleep, and Jesus talks to God by Himself. Jesus knows that bad men will be coming soon to take Him away, so He tells God, “Father, I wish there was another way… still, I will do just what you say.”

Just then an angry mob shows up with torches, waking up Jesus’ friends. Another one of Jesus’ friends who had left earlier during their Last Supper, Judas, is with them. Judas walks straight to Jesus and kisses Him — a secret signal for the temple police to arrest Jesus. Jesus tells them, “I’m the one you’re looking for,” and they all fall backwards onto the ground.

InTheGarden_Scene6_FINAL

When they get up and grab Jesus to take Him to the religious leaders, everybody runs away except Peter. Instead, Peter sneaks after the crowd to see what will happen. Three different times during the night, people ask Peter if he is one of Jesus’ friends, and every time he tells them, “I don’t even know Him!” As soon as Peter realizes that he has denied Jesus three times — just as Jesus said he would — he begins crying.

In New Bible App for Kids Story, “A Goodbye Meal,” Jesus Shares the Last Supper with His Disciples

Available now in the Bible App for Kids, “A Goodbye Meal” is the story of Jesus sharing the last supper with His disciples. Based on passages from Matthew 26:14–16, John 13:26–30, and Mark 14:12–26, “A Goodbye Meal” explains why the religious leaders didn’t like Jesus, then shows the events that gave us the Communion we still celebrate today: to remember all that Jesus sacrificed for us.

Jesus tries to show everyone how much God loves them by healing sick people and giving food to people who are hungry. But some leaders don’t like the things that Jesus is saying (and they’re jealous of Him), so they want to make Him go away. They pay one of Jesus’ followers, a man named Judas, to tell lies about Jesus so that the police will arrest Him.

GoodbyeMeal_Scene2_FINAL

But because Jesus is God, He already knows their mean plans. He even knows that Judas is secretly planning to help the bad leaders get Him in trouble! Jesus sits down to have a nice dinner with His main twelve followers, called disciples. As they are eating together, Jesus tells Judas in front of everybody that He knows what Judas is planning to do. Jesus tells Judas to go ahead and get it over with quickly, so Judas leaves to go get the bad men who will take Jesus away.

After Judas leaves, Jesus gives pieces of bread to His friends who stayed, and He shares a drink with them. He tells them, “When you eat bread—and drink together, too—remember all the things I did for you.” Jesus tells them that all the bad things that are about to happen need to happen, because that’s how God has decided He wants to forgive all of the bad things that people do. After Jesus and His friends finish eating, they sing a song together, then go to a special garden to pray…and wait.
