Last month Apple announced their all-new Apple TV, bringing the power of apps to your television experience. And just as the Bible App was one of the first to iPhone, and one of the first to Apple Watch, now the Bible App is one of the first to the new Apple TV:
You probably already know that Bible Plans are one of the best ways you can engage with the Bible every day, giving you just a few passages for each day’s reading. You probably also know that many of your favorite Bible versions are available for you to download to your device. But did you know that many Bible Plans are also available offline?
That means that even during those times when you’re away from Wi-Fi or you can’t connect to your service provider — on the subway, on an airplane, or just when you’re “getting away from it all” — you can still keep up with your current Bible Plan.
Here’s all you need to do:
Sometime when you are connected, download one of your favorite Bible versions (here’s how). Then subscribe to one — or more — Bible plans (here’s how). Downloaded Bible versions are stored on your device, as well as the data for any Bible Plans you’ve subscribed to.* The Bible App keeps track of which days you complete offline, then syncs them with your online account the next time you’re connected again — all in the background.
*Before you can use Offline Bible Plans, make sure you have the most current version of the Bible App installed. Some older versions of Android and iOS may not be supported. Downloaded Bible versions contain only the text. Each downloaded Bible uses less than 0.2 GB of storage on your device. Not all Bible versions are available for download. Downloaded Bible Plans contain only the devotional portion. Most other functions (e.g., search, videos, image files, audio files, etc.) still require an Internet connection.
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.
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!
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!
If you already have the Bible App for Kids, all you need to do to get “No Silver, No Gold” is open the app and tap the new story icon. But even if you don’t have the app yet, getting it is easy — and it’s free! Just click one of the buttons below.

You probably already know that Bible Plans are one of the best ways that you can engage with God’s Word every day. But what happens when you’re subscribed to a Plan — or, let’s be honest, to a few — and you see another Plan that you think you might like? Now, for the first time ever, you can save it for later! Here’s how:
Tap on the Plan you’re interested in, then tap “Save for later.”
That’s it! The Bible App marks that Plan as saved and adds it to a new list called Saved For Later on your My Plans page:
You’ll see listed every Plan you’ve saved, each with a “Start” link right next to it. (When you start a Plan, it moves from your Saved For Later list to your main My Plans list.)
Before you can start saving Plans, you’ll need to make sure you have the latest Bible App update for your device. So go ahead and find your next favorite Plan; even if you’re not ready to start it right now, you can always save it for later.
