John Piper Explains the 10 Most Popular Bible Verses

What are the ten most popular Bible verses in the world? And what do they mean?

YouVersion tallied the list. Now John Piper has expounded the texts.

Since YouVersion was created in 2008, it has become the most widely used Bible app, recently reaching over 100 million downloads worldwide. It is available on nearly every mobile device manufactured today.

Last year they identified the most bookmarked verses within the app. These are the verses that have been highlighted most often by their users. One could say that this list represents the most popular Bible verses in the world.

In partnership with YouVersion, we have launched a new video devotional plan from John Piper featuring his explanation of each verse. Over the course of ten days, he focuses on the meaning and application of your favorite, go-to places for help and encouragement, including verses like Philippians 4:6–7 and Proverbs 3:5–6.

Learn more about the devotional and sign up to start the plan for free. For now, these videos are available only at YouVesion, though we will have them at Desiring God in the near future.
