At our staff devotions this morning a colleague showed us a graph of the Bible references between the Old and New Testaments. It was a clever pictorial representation of which OT book and chapter connected with the New. In other words, all those references in your Bible have been connected visually. This doesn’t contradict what I said in yesterday’s post about looking for meaning where it is not warranted. In fact, it shows how the meaning and intent of Scripture is beautifully linked. If you are a visual person, this could be a valuable representation of the Word for you. It doesn’t remove the need to read Scripture, however it can add to our appreciation of it.
Chris Harrison has a variety of charts of various aspects of Scripture. http://www.chrisharrison.net/index.php/Visualizations/BibleViz
I think that someone did a similar poster about seemingly contradictions in the Bible. I like this one better!
