On Monday, November 23, at noon in your local time, let’s all read, listen to, or even watch a passage from the Bible. Then, take a moment to share using the hashtag #BibleCelebration to help your friends discover God’s Word.
Here’s our official Reading Plan for International Day of the Bible, along with some others you might enjoy starting today:

Did you know?
The Bible App now features more than 1,200 different Bible versions, in more than 880 languages. Together with our partners, YouVersion is working to make God’s Word available to every person on Earth, no matter where they live or what language they prefer.
Around the world, more than 197 million people speak Indonesian. Today, together with our partner OneHope, we’re pleased to announce the launch of the Bible App for Kids in Indonesian: The Bible App for Kids. Now, more children than ever have the opportunity to enjoy a Bible experience all their own.
And with our all-new language selector, now you can select Indonesian as your language of choice — from directly inside the Bible App for Kids! Simply update your app to the most current release, then look under Settings for “Language.” You can choose between Arabic, Brazilian Portuguese, Chinese, Dutch, English, French, German, Korean, Russian, and Spanish. The audio will play in that language, and any text will appear in that language, too!
What if all you had to do for biblical inspiration was press on your Home screen for a few seconds? With the newest Bible App update for your iPhone 6s or 6s Plus, you can! Using 3D Touch, now you can jump directly to the Bible App features you use most often, right from your Home screen:
Just press down on the Bible App icon, then select Read, Search, Verse of the Day, or Plans. You can even add a specific Reading Plan to your Home screen if you like.

Apple’s 3D Touch and Peek and Pop are currently only available on iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.
