The King James Bible represented graphically.

This image renders the 1,200 chapters and 31,000 verses of the King James Bible into visual form. The graph along the bottom represents the chapters with the lengths corresponding to the number of verses in each chapter. Each of the 63,779 colored arcs represents a cross-reference, in which a passage alludes to figures or ideas from an earlier one, while the distance between the two passages determines the color of the arc. This infographic was developed by a computer science doctoral student at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh and a Lutheran pastor in Germany.
