Bible Emoji


The Bible Emoji is a rendition of the King James Version into emojis; these are pictographs used on smartphones and on the web. They first became popular on Japanese cell phones in the 1990s. The creators identify themselves using an image of a smiley face wearing sunglasses (pictured to the right).
