Two New Bible App for Kids Stories: “A Baby and a Bush” and “Let My People Go”

The Bible App for Kids has two brand new stories, both available now! Based on passages from the book of Exodus in the Old Testament, “A Baby and a Bush” begins with the birth of Moses and follows him into Pharaoh’s household. Then as an adult, Moses learns God’s plan for his life when God speaks to him through a burning bush in the wilderness. ABabyAndABush_Scene5_FINAL In the second story, “Let My People Go,” we catch up with Moses again, as he urges Pharaoh to free God’s people. “Let My People Go” continues through the plagues in Egypt up until God triumphantly leads the Israelites to escape from their slavery.

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.

Closer to God & Each Other

From all across the YouVersion community, stories are pouring in: people telling us how much they love and appreciate Bible App 5. But they’re not talking about icons or menus or features. No, what they’re excited about is what’s happening in their relationships—with God and with each other.

“This is the first time we’re reading the Bible together, so it’s bringing us closer, helping me to understand my husband better… helping make our marriage stronger.”
—Petal

Your alt text

“My husband and I have more accountability to be in the word on a daily basis. We use the Bible app to encourage one another and to grow together in our marriage in new ways. It’s hard to argue with someone or put them down when you know that they know what you have been reading in the Bible and have you are being challenged.”

—Heather

“My unborn daughter was recently diagnosed with Spina-Bifida. We’ve been through a lot…Between the concern for our daughter, the constant moving around from house to house and hospital to hospital, and the financial strain, the Bible has been essential to our sanity. I have been sharing notes and highlights with my wife through this app…that has helped us stay together in our spiritual journey through these difficult times.”

—Seth

The latest updates to the Bible App for Android and iOS make it faster and easier to join your Friends in conversation, to see activity about what you’re reading, and to capture your thoughts, wherever they happen to come to you:

Find Friends

Expanding your circle of Friends in the app has never been easier. Tap the main menu and select “Friends.” With just a few more taps, you can invite select friends from your contacts to join you in the Bible App, by email or SMS (text message).

When you tap a verse, now the Bible App offers you the choice to see Related Moments. View your previous Bookmarks, Highlights, and Notes with the selected passage, as well as what other people are saying about it in Public Notes.

Sermon on the Mount added to the Bible App for Kids as “The King and the Kingdom”

King and Kingdom

Our latest addition brings the Sermon on the Mount to the Bible App for Kids as “The King and the Kingdom.” Based on Matthew 5-7, the story teaches kids about Jesus’ most famous sermon as He calls His followers to a new and different way of living.

King and Kingdom

Every story in the app introduces kids to biblical concepts in a way they can understand and remember. And of course we didn’t forget about the fun! The colorful animation features lots of great moments, like joining the crowd on the hillside to hear Jesus preach, or seeing the difference between the house built on rock and the one built on sand.

To get “The King and the Kingdom”, simply tap its icon in the app to download it.

TIP: Downloading stories over a fast Wi-Fi connection is pretty quick, but you might want to download them before you share them with your kids so they can dive right in.
