Visualizing the Bible

Props to my band buddy Greg for posting this link. It’s called “Visualizing the Bible” and National Geographic named this as one of the best science images of the year. The bar graph running across the bottom represents the 66 books of the Bible according to number of chapters. The lines extending back and forth represent the cross references in Scripture, demonstrating the “intertextuality” of Scripture, or “the shaping of text’s meanings by other texts.” It’s amazing how visually stunning this looks. Check it. And also check Greg’s blog while you’re at it;)
