This is how the Bible speaks to itself – or the textual cross-references within it. The bar graph that runs along the bottom represents all of the chapters in the Bible.
Books alternate between white and light gray and 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 singular arc – the colour corresponds to the distance between the two chapters, creating a rainbow-like effect.
