The Bible all ties together

This might be the most amazing data picture you see in a lifetime. It shows the 63,779 cross-references in the Bible.

The white bars along the bottom represent each Bible chapter from the beginning with Genesis 1 right through to the end of the Bible in Revelation 22. The line’s color shows the reference’s distance from the other. A cross-reference is a scripture that references another scripture.

If the Bible had been written by one person or at one time this would still be amazing. However, the Bible was written by 40 authors over the span of 1500 years on 3 different continents.

The Bible is complex, diverse, and intricate, and yet it has one unified message – God lovingly is redeeming all who believe!
