Word Images of the Gospel

Monday, December 13th, 2010

I’m a visual/kinesthetic learner. As a visual learners I learn best by seeing information. So to discover insights into something, I’m always looking for a way to picture information. A word cloud is one way to do this.

A word cloud gives greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the data being examined. So the more frequent a word appears in the text, the larger it appears in the word cloud. This allows one to quickly see main ideas, subjects or thoughts based on the words used.

I recently created word clouds (below) for the gospel according to Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.

It’s interesting to see commonality, as one would expect, but also the uniqueness of each.
