The Caption button provides a description of the photo and the full text and translation of each Bible verse, including the Bible verse of the day.
The Good News section features a series of Bible verses about receiving salvation by believing in Jesus. More Good News features Scripture verses on a variety of topics, including Peace, Help, Guidance, Hope, and Sleep.
