When Bitmoji were first introduced, they immediately became popular as they were a fun way of communicating. However, no one would have imagined that Bitmoji could be used to “translate” one of the oldest books in the world, the Bible. Well, the first Bitmoji Bible launched to celebrate Easter.
The Bible has been translated in all languages, and two men believed that it is time to adapt it to modern days as well. A Bitmoji version of the Bible is now available, and Phil Lebovits and Daniel Eckler created it.
Creating the Bitmoji Bible
The Bitmoji Bible adapts all the stories found in the Bible, and it does it using Bitmoji exclusively. According to one of the creators, this projects aims to bring children closer to spirituality. “Today’s children are more likely to read a text message than a book. Given the Bible has been translated into more than 3000 languages, I thought it should be translated into one of the most popular contemporary languages,” explained Daniel Eckler.
You might believe that the creators are devoted Christians. However, Eckler explained that he has been agnostic for most of his life, although he is currently exploring Christianity. He chose Bitmoji because he believes that they are “surprisingly flexible” and “you can tell all sorts of stories with them.”
Bitmoji version of the Bible launched
According to Eckler, the Bitmoji Bible has a dual function. It will help younger people get accustomed to the Bible, while adults “might interpret it from a more humorous place.”
Eckler thinks that his initiative will allow more people to explore spirituality, including those who aren’t interested in these things. “Not to say they’re substitutes, but as long as people are seeking spiritual truths. I think they’ll find them where they find them,” concluded Eckler. To check the Bitmoji Bible out, go here.
