Biblical Marathon – Raquel Dos Santos

This application has been created with the intention of being accessible to everyone. It also allows a motivating experience to learn the word of God, offering at all times, if the user wishes, communication with other users through groups, multiplayer Bible games and online ranking.

The application can be divided into 3 parts, but in reality everything is integrated.

1) Game

Biblical Marathon:

The Biblical Marathon game is a fun way to read the whole Bible, or part of it, such as books composed by Pentateuch, Historical Books, Poetic Books, Major Prophets, Minor Prophets, Gospels and Epistles.

The format of the game is simple, the users select the Marathon mode in which they want to participate and once the game is selected and created, the application will show the users a verse, from which they will have to guess the book to which it belongs.

Once the game is created, an option is created on the main screen of the application so that the users can continue the marathon at any time without having to start again. At the end of the game, the users will have read all the books of the chosen marathon.

By default, the user’s score is in the Ranking, but the users can disable this option in the application settings or make their profile private.


The game format is similar to the Biblical Marathon but with some differences:

=> It allows adding up to 100 users to the game, so that the users can challenge their friends. For this the users must know the nick or email with which each friend they want to add has registered and use the search engine to find them. Once users are found, they can be added to the game and also to favorites to speed up the creation of future games.
=> It allows to create games with other unknown players, randomly.
=> The duration of the game is shorter and, by default, consists of 5 questions but it can be changed.

All the players in the game will receive the same questions, whoever answers correctly and in the shortest time wins the game. This will be reflected in the user profile and in the ranking whenever the users wish, since this option can be disabled.
There are more than 100 achievements in the application and many ways to get them by learning the word of God, either through reading or game mode.

2) Biblical Reading Mode

The application offers the following reading modes:

Classic Reading:

As the name says, it is a classic reading in which the users must choose the book and the chapter to read the verses they want.

The application has a system that detects if the users have read the entire chapter. In the list of book chapters the already read chapters will be seen in a lighter color.

Create reading plan

They are reading plans with a format more adapted to mobile devices, allowing greater control in reading. The plans available are: the complete Bible, Pentateuch, Historical Books, Poetic Books, Major Prophets, Minor Prophets, Gospels or Epistles.

What the Bible says about …

They are short reading plans on a specific topic such as love, confession or forgiveness, among many others. There are over 100 plans available.

Parallel Reading

Lets the users read two different versions of the Bible at the same time. It is a good way to know the differences between translations and it is also interesting to learn or improve new languages.



3) Group and Chat

A group can be public or private and any user can create one. A user can only be associated with a single group.

They are useful, for example, for groups of friends or for a church, since the messages in the groups are private and only members of the group have access to it, it is a good way to communicate with the members without having to know personal information.

When a private group is created, the group administrator generates a password that must be provided to future members, since we understand that groups are made up of users that know each other.
