Bible App for Android Has Two Brand-New Widgets

Bible App Widgets can help you keep God’s Word front-and-center in your day, giving you a quick, “at-a-glance” peek into your favorite features — right on your device’s Home screen! The latest update to the Bible App for Android includes two all-new Widgets: one for Verse of the Day and one for Reading Plans.

Verse of the Day Widget


The Verse of the Day Widget displays as much of today’s Verse of the Day as will fit in the size you selected. One tap on any of the three available sizes can take you to the Verse of the Day inside the Bible App. In the two larger sizes, you can adjust the Widget’s settings, share today’s Verse of the Day with your friends, and even make a Verse Image — all starting directly from your Home screen! When you add the Verse of the Day Widget,* select a black or white color theme, turn transparency on or off, and specify the Bible version you’d like displayed in your Widget.

Reading Plans Widget

Each of the three available sizes of the Reading Plans Widget displays the Plan artwork of any of your currently subscribed Plans, along with quick links to today’s Devotional Content and Bible passages — again, all from your Home screen. When you add the Reading Plans Widget,* you’ll specify a black or white color theme, turn transparency on or off, and select which Plan(s) you want to display.

*Note: The way you add Widgets to your device varies by manufacturer. Try entering “Widgets” into your device’s Search tools, or look online for tips on how to add Widgets to your specific device.

Tip: We want your Bible App experience to be as amazing as possible. So before you update or install this latest version, please check your device Settings to ensure that it’s up-to-date with the most recent release of Android available. Some Bible App features may not be available on older devices, or on older versions of Android.

New in the Bible App for Kids: “In the Garden”: Peter Denies Knowing Jesus

Available now in the Bible App for Kids, “In the Garden” picks up where the story “A Goodbye Meal” left off. Based on the passages Matthew 26:31–75 and John 18:1–8, after Jesus finishes eating the Last Supper with His friends, they go on a nighttime walk toward a big garden. On the way, Jesus tells them that soon they will all run away and leave Him. One of Jesus’ friends, Peter, insists, “I will never leave you!” But Jesus tells Peter that before the sun comes up the next morning, Peter will say he doesn’t know Jesus — three times!


When they get to the garden, Jesus asks His friends to pray with Him. But because it’s very late at night, they are all so tired that they fall asleep, and Jesus talks to God by Himself. Jesus knows that bad men will be coming soon to take Him away, so He tells God, “Father, I wish there was another way… still, I will do just what you say.”

Just then an angry mob shows up with torches, waking up Jesus’ friends. Another one of Jesus’ friends who had left earlier during their Last Supper, Judas, is with them. Judas walks straight to Jesus and kisses Him — a secret signal for the temple police to arrest Jesus. Jesus tells them, “I’m the one you’re looking for,” and they all fall backwards onto the ground.


When they get up and grab Jesus to take Him to the religious leaders, everybody runs away except Peter. Instead, Peter sneaks after the crowd to see what will happen. Three different times during the night, people ask Peter if he is one of Jesus’ friends, and every time he tells them, “I don’t even know Him!” As soon as Peter realizes that he has denied Jesus three times — just as Jesus said he would — he begins crying.
