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?

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.
