Purpose of this app
Read the bible, and browse the persons, events and places described, and their relations. E.g. see on a map which way Jesus or Paul traveled, and see the stories that happened there. Discover the Bible interactively: By person, by time, or by location.
The Bible mentions a lot of historic persons, with complex human relations, and ancient places that often no longer exist and we thus have no imagination of. Also, like today, there are many "Mary"s and "James".
This app tries to help making the Bible more explorable, by allowing to click on a name and seeing everything about that person. You can explore their family tree, see their places on a map, and the events they were involved in. You can jump to that event and read about it in the Bible. When "Capernaum" is mentioned, you can see it on a map, and what else happened on that place and who else was there.
At the moment, the content is still very limited. Eventually, if this effort can be completed, you should be able to get a list of all Bible events, in order of time, and read the Bible - e.g. the gospels - in a chronological order of the events instead of book by book. But it's not there yet.
The app contains the whole bible, and you will have the whole text stored on your phone, so you can read the Bible without Internet connection. The "Personal reading" feature stores where you left off. Set the bookmark by clicking on a verse number, then click on "Set bookmark".
