Visualizing the Bible

My friend Mark sent me an interesting website from Chris Harrison. In it, Chris has plotted out different connections in the Bible and artistically rendered them to appreciate graphically. Below I display one of his graphs displaying the 63,779 cross-references in the Bible. This takes a few moments to read (and reread) his explanation and then stare at the image for a bit. If you are a visual person than this offers a helpful perspective on the connectedness of Scripture. He also does connections with names in other graphs on his site. You can view high res versions of the graphics from his site as well which allows you to see some of the connections more specifically.

Bible Visualization Arc

“The bar graph that runs along the bottom represents all of the chapters in the Bible. Books alternate in color between white and light gray. The length of each bar denotes the number of verses in the chapter. Each of the 63,779 cross references found in the Bible is depicted by a single arc – the color corresponds to the distance between the two chapters, creating a rainbow-like effect.”
