About Bible APIs

The Bible is the collection of scriptural texts that are sacred to Christianity. The Old Testament or Hebrew Scriptures tell the story of Israel and are part of the Jewish faith. The New Testament tells the story of Jesus and the early Christian church. For centuries, monks carefully copied these sacred texts by hand. Today, faithful people and religious scholars access the scriptures online. Applications that work with the biblical text reach out to a Bible API.

What are Bible APIs?

An API focused on the Bible is a searchable data structure that allows websites and apps to pull information about the text. The organization of an API depends on its use. There are many translations of the Bible, so an API might return a list of the same Bible verse in several versions. Other searchable APIs will break verses down by topic. A user will be able to search for texts about hope, love or other subjects.

How does a Bible verse API work?

When an application needs Bible information, it makes a GET request to the API. This request might include a book name, chapter, and verse. The API returns the requested information in JSON or XML format. Then, the application displays the data according to the developer’s programming.

Who is a Bible verse API for?

Faithful people around the world look for inspiration from scripture. A website that wants to include a Verse of the Day feature could call a Bible API. Bible-centered applications will use these APIs to allow users to run topical searches by word or phrase. Applications designed for religious scholars will also use APIs for in-depth searches or aid with translations.

Why is the Bible important?

Over two billion people have a connection to the Christian faith. While there are a variety of traditions, most believers have a connection to the Bible. Having access to accurate translations can inspire people to deepen their faith and grow in understanding. These APIs also make ancient scripture accessible to younger generations who are more comfortable with digital media.

What can a developer expect from Bible APIs?

The Bible is a collection of books that are organized into chapters and verses. The best APIs will allow users to enter a verse and see the corresponding text. They may also be able to search by language or translation so that they can do comparative studies.

Are there free Bible verse APIs?

Religious organizations want to offer resources to encourage Bible study. For this reason, APIS like the Bible References API and the Holy Bible API offer their services at no cost.
