“God’s Good News” is the latest story to arrive in the Bible App for Kids. But this story is special, unlike anything we’ve offered before. “God’s Good News” draws scenes from stories we’ve already launched, and adds a brand-new scene. The story of “God’s Good News” shows kids that when we put all of the pieces together, we can see the bigger picture of what God is telling us through the Bible:
that God loves us, and that through His Son Jesus,
we can know Him and become part of His story, too
Of course, “God’s Good News” uses the same fun, interactive approach to storytelling that’s already helped children all over the world fall in love with the Bible. And we still have many more stories yet to come! To get “God’s Good News” now, simply tap its icon in the app to download it.
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.
What’s The Bible App for Kids?
Already installed on over 3 million devices, the completely free Bible App for Kids is the newest app from YouVersion, makers of the Bible App. Designed to give your children a delight-filled Bible experience all their own, here are all the places where you can find the Bible App for Kids:
Apple: App Store
Android: Google Play
Kindle Fire: Amazon Appstore
People ask us all the time if the Bible App can send them the Verse of the Day, so they’ll never miss one. And now it can! If you’re new to the Bible App, the Verse of the Day is a select daily passage intended to encourage you, refresh your perspective, and help you focus your thoughts on God. Of course, you’ll want to read more of the Bible than just one verse a day, but the Verse of the Day is a quick, easy way you can remind yourself what’s important.
Available now on iOS (newest 5.1.1 release), this handy feature is also coming soon to the Bible App for Android and to bible.com. Maybe you like thinking about the Bible first thing when you wake up. Or meditating on it as a midday reminder. Or perhaps at bedtime, so you can think about it as you’re drifting to sleep. Whatever your preference, just tell the Bible App when and how you want your Verse of the Day delivered…and we’ll do the rest!
Here’s how you can get the Verse of the Day, every day:
Home View: Find any Verse of the Day moment
Tap the gear icon (see below)
Select email or push notification
(push notification means it will pop up on your device screen)
Specify what time you want to receive your Verse of the Day
- Select the Bible version you prefer
Update: You can now subscribe to the Verse of the Day on the Bible App for Android as well as at bible.com
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.
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.
