The team, which have not identified themselves, have included the pictures - used in internet and smartphone messaging - to create the new version.
They've said they're hoping the new translation will make the Bible, which can be a daunting book for some, more accessible and approachable.
There have been mixed reactions on Twitter towards the idea, with some praising it for making the Bible more fun and approachable while others say it has mocked God's Word and also made it harder to understand.
Caleb Woodbridge, the Digital Content Manager for Scripture Union, told Premier's News Hour: "I think it's a fantastic idea to be presenting the Bible in new and creative ways.
"We're all about reaching the next generation with the Good News and anything that engages people in a fresh and exciting way seems a good idea to me.
"You have to be careful not to do stuff that trivialises the Word of God but God speaks to people in a language they can understand and that always needs adapting to new cultures and context.
"Today, that's things like emojis."
The Bible with emojis is due out on the Apple iBooks store this Sunday.
