First came the Bible Emoji Translator.
Sure, translating Bible verses into a string of emojis is pretty cool – handy even. You can drop-in a cool verse you’d like to share, copy the emoji results, and then link to the full scripture text. It’s a fun and creative way to engage with scripture and friends.
But what about the other way around?
Emoji Bible Search
Bible Gateway has now made it possible to search the Bible using emojis!
While doing this from the desktop is a little awkward, mobile users will find it super easy to do. Curious to what some emojis mean? Try the Emojipedia.
But if you like to use emojis as much as I do, I’m sure you’ll navigate the Bible Gateway search without any problem. Simply drop-in emojis into the Bible Gateway search bar like you would normally.
I did a little test search using ?❤.
Sure enough, my results were full of “heart” and “joy.”
What a great addition to Bible Gateway (YouVersion?) and a fun new way to engage the scriptures.
