Easter, Families, and Bible App for Kids

The Bible App for Kids

We know the hope and joy found in Christ’s resurrection, but how do we share it with our kids in a way they’ll understand? The two new Bible App for Kids stories help your children learn about Easter through an age-appropriate experience. “It Is Finished” tells the story of the sacrifice of Jesus, while “A Happy Sunday” introduces the power of His resurrection.

Read the Easter Story Together

Turn Easter into a family Bible study by reading Scripture together. Read the Easter story while your kids interact with the Bible App for Kids stories. Your children will learn about persecution, Jesus’ disciples, the empty tomb, and where Jesus is today. Here are some Scripture references to get you started.

Have a Conversation About Jesus

After learning about the death and resurrection of Jesus, your children might have some questions. This is the perfect time to have a conversation about God. Here are a few questions you can ask your kids to make sure they fully understand the Easter story.

  • Why did Jesus have to die and be raised from the dead?

  • What did Jesus do for us by dying on the cross?

  • Where is Jesus today?

 

The Bible App for Kids is available for free for iOS, Android, and Kindle. Download the Bible App for Kids today.

Two New Stories Debut in the Bible App for Kids

The Bible App for Kids has two brand new stories, both available for your kids to start enjoying right away. “The Dreamer” is the story of Joseph, a boy who has special dreams inspired by God, from Genesis 37 and 39. “Dreams Come True” is the thrilling conclusion to Joseph’s story, showing that God was with him all along, keeping His promise to Joseph’s father Jacob. Of course, both of these Joseph stories feature the same delightful animation and fun interaction your children have come to expect from the Bible App for Kids.

Joseph! Two new stories.

If you already have the most recent update of the Bible App for Kids, you’ll see “The Dreamer” and “Dreams Come True” in the main timeline as soon as you open the app. All you need to do to get the new stories is tap and download.

TIP: While each story takes just a few moments to download over a fast Wi-Fi connection, you might want to download them first—before you share them with your kids.
