The stories this past week of the passover and the exodus are perhaps the most well-connected passages of the Bible. The New Testament depends on them as the background for our faith.
In case you’ve any doubt about the inter-connected and inter-related nature of scripture, I found these two sites to be particularly helpful and just plain cool: Bible Visualizations.
Chris Harrison’s Site with Bible Visualizations shows a really neat interconnected network of cross references in the Bible. His work is based on statistics gleaned from the KJV, and was the source for some of what we discuss tonight.
PastorBlog has two other visualizations, both based on word occurence. One is a word tree, showing you each usage of a word in a text, and another is a spatial diagram showing the occurence of a biblical word across the entire canon.
